  3. Little did I expect to be negatively impacted by the lack of content control panel under the Developer tab when I purchase 365.

    Please implement the feature on Mac, or at least let people know about it upon purchase so that consumers are well-informed.

  5. Make multilevel lists/styles easier to use

    Trying to tweak multilevel lists often ends in sadness and much wasted time. The whole process is confusing. The frustration starts at the very beginning: Do I click "Define New Multilevel List" or "Define New List Style"? It only gets worse from there. Styles are thrown off (styles are also—for being incredibly useful—irredeemably frustrating at times). I don't know how to make multilevel list creation more intuitive, but there must be a way.

  6. Fix standard Times New Roman ligatures in Word for Mac 365

    Standard ligatures for Times New Roman are not working when "standard only" is selected in the ligatures drop-down in the advanced technology section of the fonts pane. Ligatures will work only when "all" is chosen. It's awfully confusing.

  7. Bring the OneNote Immersive Reader to Word for Mac

    I can't believe I'm saying this: Word for Mac should be more like OneNote for Mac. The usually barebones Mac OneNote client has a fantastic immersive reader, while the same feature in Word is missing some core features. The parts of speech highlighting function is brilliant, but it's only on OneNote. Would you please bring it to Word for Mac?

  8. Enhance readability statistics

    Include options that analyze sentences for power. Word placement, brevity, active voice, sparse use of adverbs. Combine this with Immersive Reader to highlight "flabby" words—"prior to" instead of "before" "However [comma]" instead of "But," etc.

  9. Embrace alternative stylistic glyphs

    As more OpenType fonts include stylistic alternatives, users should be able to choose custom glyphs from the font's character set. This would be especially helpful for fonts like Zapfino, which have up to 9 variants of some letters. These fonts are useless in Word without the option to choose the glyphs that make the font work. Stylistic sets are a step in the right direction (thank you for including them), but they're an incomplete solution.

  10. FIND no longer works

    I tried spotlight, but it doesn't work on my Mac either. I write long books, and might need to go to another platform. Please restore FIND or be clear in how SPOTLIGHT works. I need an answer ASAP whether WORD still works for me in this matter.

  12. How should I stay with one Battery the whole day at the University if Word is so hungry

    Hello

    If I use Word the I see the battery power goes down very fast. Word is also always in the list of Apps which are under heavy Energy. If you want I use Word then it must be more focused on saving battery power.

  13. Find and replace across multiple documents in Word for Mac

    Need the ability in 'Word for MAC' to create a macro that will do 'find and replace' on an entire FOLDER of Word for Mac documents. This would seem to be a simple fix. When Command/Shift/H is selected, it would be nice to have a built-in data entry box for 'find and replace' in entire folders. If it can be done on Windows, no reason to not be able to do it on a Mac.

  15. Create Headings & Body Fonts

    In the Windows version, on the Design tab, there is an option to edit the fonts for headings and body and save that as a new font combination. In the Mac version, the Fonts drop-down is there, but it will not allow a user to create their own fonts for headings and body.

  18. restore functionality to put footnotes under same column.

    In earlier versions of Word, in a two-column document, footnotes appeared under the relevant column. In 365 it was "improved" to give "more options"... except that the best option of having the footnote appear under the same column is removed. So you have to save in old versions of Word, which I do, making the new version of Word unhelpful. I see zillions of people have complained.

  20. Icons for Ribbon customization

    Word for Mac 365 users are now able to customize the Ribbon (and the Quick Access Toolbar), but many Word commands - and all styles, and all macros - lack icons, so a customized Ribbon (or QAT) tends to show a number of empty fields. Suggestion: provide users with icons for all customizations on the Ribbon and the QAT (as in the Windows version)
