  3. After updating to iOS Catalina my Microsoft Office is disabled

    I can’t use Microsoft Office since I updated to iOS Catalina on my MacBook Air. I need help finding a quick resolution because all of my work is blocked.

  4. Microsoft Word freezes on Catalina 10.15

    Microsoft Word freezes for 5 secs on MacOs Catalina 10.15 whenever something is highlighted or the cursor is changed from the touchpad. This is happening without a miss and is highly irritating. I expect Microsoft to at least test their products on new OS. Not the kind of quality expected when such high amount is spent on Microsoft Office.

  5. When thesaurus is open, clicking on a new word should substitute new word into the thesaurus

    If you select a word to check in thesaurus via Synonyms>Thesaurus, then the word gets displayed in the panel that opens up on the right.
    All good so far...
    However, if you right click another word to check, again using Synonyms>Thesaurus, the righthand side panel closes. Not what you'd expect to happen. What should happen is that the word that you were checking first would be replaced by the new word you want to check!
    That is what should happen logically!

  6. Line #'s can not be seen if a photo or an image is inserted to cover the full page including the hearer and footer.

    My product is Word 2016 for Mac...

    I have a 542 page book in 11 x 17 page format with many images/photos and sometimes covering the full page. There doesn't seem to be a means to have the page number on top of the inserted full page image. I would like to high light the page #s with a white background so that the page #s look normal on regular paged, and with full page images/photos the white background of the page #s would stand out...

    Regards,
    Don_

  9. faded highlight

    When running cursor over material needing to be highlighted to change font size or cut and paste, the highlighted area was not visible any more. One was not sure when it was or was not high lighted.

  10. Keep selection settings after an update

    I prefer to work without the setting "Select entire word when selecting text". However, this setting gets reactivated whenever I update Word. Please do not reset settings after updates.

  15. Azure Citation Database/Source Manager Collaboration

    More people are using tablets and word online; why is there not a citation capability in this format?

    In a world where automation is more effective for productivity, formatting citation should be almost automatic, seamless. Researchers, education professionals, and students can create a database and up-vote on the format or down-vote. Additionally, you can attempt to establish a partnership with associations with this proficiency.

    You can start by creating an individual cloud citation source manager database on Azure. Enable the user to filter through and categorize their resources, by the style of writing, subject, and date.

    Furthermore, the citation manager…

  16. I would like word documents to remember the state in which they were last viewed such as outline or Print View.

    I would like word documents to remember the state in which they were last viewed such as outline or Print View. For example, I have one document that I always want to view in an outline format, and each time I open it, it opens in Print View. I change it to outline and the next document I open, opens in outline view and I need to change that to print view. Is there any way to resolve that?

  17. For multilingual documents: option to apply a different language while running spell check

    When editing a long document (such as a book) with an occasional word from another language, the user has to select "Ignore", "Ignore All", or "Add". Or, before running spell check, the user has to go through the document and select each word of a different language and apply the language to it (not feasible timewise). Another strategy has been to create separate character styles for each language (again, not feasible to use in our environment, where we have maybe 50 custom styles).
    This would be handled much better with the option to apply a different language or no proofing,…

  18. Please create a simple way to disable the "Welcome back" message that appears when I re-open a Word document.

    I understand that the Welcome Back message is supposed to be convenient, but I find it irritating. Please create a simple way to disable this feature.

  19. deplacer une photo sur un document word

    revenir a ce qui ce faisait avant pour déplacer une photo sur un document word, c'est juste impossible maintenant, je ne comprends pas pourquoi vous avez compliqué la façon de faire. Avant il suffisait d'utiliser la souris ou les flèches, maintenant on n'a plus le choix du positionnement d'une photo. très déçu
