    • Avoid 'Online Locations' dialog entirely

      When I choose File | Open , the 'Online Locations' dialog always opens first. As I don't use it, but prefer to keep my files locally, I need to choose 'On my Mac' option each time. I would like to be able to avoid this. So a preference setting to suppress 'Online locations' would be very usefulf

      • Centering text horizontally

        Please add an option to center text horizontally. Think of it like as a typewriter style, where the document scrolls up or down but the line you're typing on always remains centered on-screen.

        • Fix repeat/redo function

          Fix the repeat/redo function. It no longer repeats entire text typed if words were autocorrected or if backspace was used

            • Bring easy AutoText so I can just click "new" and add what I want

              I used to be able to click on "insert" "auto-text" "new" and enter new text that would be easily accessible on the "Auto Text" menu. Now "new" is grayed out and I've lost all my headers and footers that I had stored there. Happened last time I updated. I have version 16.20, updated December 12, 2018.

                • Change Ctrl-click to Cmd-click please

                  It is irritating that the standard Cmd-click (see file path) in OSX is replaced by Ctrl-click in Word for Mac. I often need to check which version of a document I am working on, and I have been thinking that this would be impossible in Word, till I stumbled on the un-Mac-like solution.

                  • Let us separate date/time stamp from author stamp in review comments -- like we used to be able to do!

                    We used to be able to display review comments with author, or date/time, or both (in Track Changes preferences). Separating those items is no longer possible. Please bring back the ability to choose which info to display. Why would you remove that flexibility? I often edit documents in which I need to indicate that I am the editor, but the people receiving them don't need to know what time I am working!

                      • Add continuity camera support

                        Add the new MacOS Mojave Continuity Camera feature...
                        This is already supported in Powerpoint but should be added to Word and OneNote.

                          • descending number list

                            enable an option in the automatic numbering list or 'define new list style' to have the numbers go in descending order. this would be very useful for any list being updated where the original is #1 and each update is the highest number

                                I love word for Mac and word generally, but the default for smart art is inaccessible (white text on blue fill is impossible for someone with low vision to see). Please change the default to an accessible font color with a no fill background.

                                  I bought the Office in Slovenia. I work in Slovenia and write a lot of emails and documents every day.

                                  Can we get a Slovenian language pack for: spellchecking & proofreading?

                                  • Bring back horizontal Reviewing pane and other options

                                    With the Track Changes, Comments, and Compare Documents functions, Word is the best tool for editing I have found. But when you have lots of changes, and especially when you need to look at 2 documents side by side, Draft View with inline tracking and a horizontal reviewing pane at the bottom of the document is the best way to do it. Word 2008 was great for this. In Word 2011 it is still doable but requires extra work to get the horizontal reviewing pane. In Word 2016 it is impossible, and furthermore the nonprinting characters in Word 2016 show…
