  4. Allow for a default zoom view

    I normally zoom to 150% when working in Word. In the Word 365, it always resets to 100% and I have to change it every time I open a document. Please fix.

  5. highlight link

    when you highlight an entire paragraph and want to remove links, instead of having to go to each and every link, just have it so you can remove them all at once

  8. Add the XML mapping pane

    In Word for Windows, the XML mapping pane option is available. This way you can easily add XML tags in an exisiting Word document. It would be very welcome if this can be added to Word for Mac.

    There is also no alternative available, so if people want to add XML tags in Word, they always have to change to Windows.

  13. Recently viewed

    In the old Word, you had recently viewed documents filed under that heading. Now with One Drive, documents disappear into the void, and have to be searched for in Finder. It's maddening and stupid. Every change you've made in Word is for the worse. And now we have to pay more for it. I will probably switch out of Word and start using another program because I am so irritated.

  14. Why would you get rid of the split screen feature that allowed me to view two different versions of a document simultaneously?

  15. Increase the file size limit for exporting to electronic PDF in Word.

    Currently, it seems the latest version of Word supports a maximum file size of 40MB when exporting electronic PDFs. This appears to be an arbitrary limitation, as the error message states: "This version of Word can't be exported to this type of file because the file is too large. Generally, a file that is larger than 40 MB is too big to export".

    I don't remember this being an issue before PDF conversion went to the cloud. It would be extremely helpful to be able to convert big files — I'm currently having issues with finalising my mixed-media PhD thesis.

  17. Microsoft's support team was incapable of assisting me

    I was looking for documents that were composed before the purchase of my Mac laptop. Not one representative was capable of assisting. I had to pretend to have issues with my Mac so that an Apple employee can assist me with a Microsoft word issue. It took the Apple rep 20 seconds to assist me.

    In addition, I tried the answers site. Not one person could tell me how to find word documents that were not saved on my laptop.

    Thankfully the Apple was educated in the word app and she was able to direct me. I found everything thanks…

  19. AutoTexto

    No momento de usar o AutoTexto, o Word deveria inserir a palavra já adaptando-a à fonte que está sendo usada naquele momento (fonte, tamanho, maiuscolo ou minuscolo, etc). Seria muito mais útil!

  20. Ditado em várias línguas

    Sou italiana, mas moro Brasil. Soube pelo atendimento telefônico, que se o meu note reconhece que estou no Brasil, só reconhecerá o ditado em português... muito pouco útil isso! Seria interessante criar uma opção que permita escolher a língua do ditado, assim como é possível escolher a língua de revisão no texto.
    Obrigada
