  1. Mac Word VBA Createobject/"new applicationname"/getobject still not working

    As reported in https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/e5f90521-a691-4cdb-94a4-c2a864a09e3e/createobject-etc-in-mac-office-2016?forum=Office2016forMac and via the Office smiley mechanism, using createobject/getobject to create/get Excel objects from Word hasn't worked in Word 2016/2019/365 for some time. This basically undermines the entire notion that Office can be automated on the desktop on Mac.

    BTW I will be posting this on office365.uservoice.com as well

  2. Moving a window around the screen.

    Moving MS Office windows (and any app really) around requires finding any small empty space on the toolbars to do so. What about having a small marker (like an arrow that points outward) at several edge locations that when moused over, flips a tab out that a user can grab and move the window around, (up, down, right, left etc)?

  5. Change endnote formatting back to the way it worked in an earlier version of Word!

    In the newest version of Word, the endnotes divide up under each column of text. It's not logical to to read a document this way. No serious article is formatted in this fashion. The endnotes should follow the last sentence of the article. Period. In other words at the very end, not at the end of both columns. Furthermore, the columns on the last page should not be automatically divided into two equal sections. Hard to understand why the new version was designed this way.

  7. Word Translation Application

    Folks:
    A great add-on feature in Microsoft 360 Word for Mac application would allow you to generate antonyms to selected words. This would be helpful in my Norwegian and English writings. Thanks, Erik

  8. Please get rid of message about downloading fonts

    Every time I want to change a font in WORD, I get a string of messages saying something like "Microsoft wants to dowload the font "some obscure font name". [Skip] or [Download]. So i have to skip 4 or 5 such messages each time. Please fix this

  9. Elenchi puntati salvabili

    Sarebbe funzionale avere la possibilità di salvare elenchi puntati e numerati pre-formattati in modo da evitare all'utente ogni volta di reimpostare i rientri e la tabulazione. È disponibile salvare gli elenchi puntati nella sezione Raccolta punti elenco, ma questi cambiano sempre tabulazione e rientri, rendendo fastidioso l'intervento continuo.

  10. A search function that allowed for looking for a word only when it appears in the same sentence or paragraph as another word.

    A search function similar to the text search function in Westlaw, where you can search for a word only in sentences or paragraphs that contain another word, such as "'death penalty' /p juvenile" to search for the phrase "death penalty" only in the paragraphs that contain the word "juvenile." You should also be able to do this with a number of words, like "penalty /7 juvenile" which would reveal the word penalty only in instances where it was up to 7 words away from the word juvenile.

  12. How many times do one have to say NO before the receiver gets it?????????

    NO I don't want to risk that automatic updates can interrupt critical processes and I don't want to be asked 10,000 times if I changed my mind. I haven't!

  13. DISABLE RECENT DOC TRACKING FOR MAC PRODUCTS (WORD, EXCEL, POWERPOINT)

    Hello, I see many people are writing about the same thing. In Microsoft products for Mac 2011, there was an option to select "0" for recent docs kept in tracking list, disabling the tracking of recently opened docs. Since Office for Mac 2016 and 2019, this has not been available. PLEASE listen and respond, and make this feature available. It is a serious breech of privacy to not have this option for people like me who work with sensitive documents. I used to post this comment several times but for years no one has listened. Please wake up.

  14. Spelling and Grammer size

    Provide ability to make the Spelling and Grammar box size bigger. The size of tex in the box is so small compared to the document it is almost unreadable, particularly when using a standing desk.

  15. Please fix glitch on numbered lists. The auto spacing on lists works great up until #9. When it gets to #10 the indentation is way too big

    Fix glitch on numbered lisst in WORD. The spacing works great through #9. When it gets to #10 the spacing (indent) is way too much and the whole document looks strange and numbers don't line up. Very frustrating!

  17. Remove author's name and entry time from Comment balloons in MS Office for Mac 2019.

    MS Office for Mac 2011 enabled the removal of the author's name and entry time from Comment balloons in the margin. Regretfully, the 2019 version does not. Please restore this important feature in the 2019 version.

  19. Add capability to force word to keep small tables on one page

    Currently MS support says it is not possible to force Mac Word 365 to keep lines of a table together; if the table starts at the bottom of the page it will split the table with the bottom portion on the next page. Suggestions such as page break or paragraph returns are not satisfactory because the location of the table may change. Word needs to have the ability to keep all lines of a table together.

  20. In-text citations for APA do not format correctly (not alphabetized, no et al., no b, c)

    1) In-text citations in APA format should be listed alphabetically. Word does not do this. I tried to use the sort option, but this does not work. I am using a Mac.
    2) Word does not auto-format in-text citations as et al. after the first citation for sources with three or more authors. This is proper formatting for APA citations.
    3) Word does not auto-format in-text citations as b, c, etc. when a citation with the same author and date, but a different source is cited. Proper citation format would be (EPA, 2019) for the first source and then (EPA,…
