  2. Why is it so hard to insert page x of y?!

    WHY?! It is so frustrating that I can't find this format for my footer in the document. It should be in the toolbar..!

  3. Improve the "REPEAT" function key

    Occasionally, I find myself in dire need of repeating a particular key/character many times over. The computer I used to work with had a "REPEAT" word in the power bar. As an example, If I needed to use the asterisk (*) 1000 times, I'd click the *, click on REPEAT and type in the desired number of times i wanted it too appear. as soon as Ihit enter, it would start typing the * 1000 times. And it did it extremely fast too.

    That would be extremely beneficial to me in my graphics.

  5. make search tool caps locks sensitive

    For example, if I look for "ID", I won't have to filter through unrelated words with "id" in, such as "side", "idea", "riddle", "lid" etc.

  8. Autorecover for when Word crashes

    Apparently Word only uses autorecover when there's an unexpected hardware shut down - not when Word itself crashes. Which it does a lot. If a file is saved to my harddrive - or not saved yet at all - the work vanishes. I keep losing work and I can't get it back. I don't know why Word is less reliable now than it was 10 years ago.

  9. page notation

    on the side of the page which doesn't affect the text or word count, but it would help for planning essays, along with writing them cos' otherwise I have no clue on how much I have written and a page marker would be helpful, they wouldn't be affected writing on the page...

  11. Fix issue that attempting to print a range of pages freezes the system

    The issue has been reported already frequently:When attempting to print not the complete document but only selected pages (range of pages), the system "freezes". To support error reproduction and root cause analysis, find some further information below:

    1.) The error only occurs when printing documents that contain references to text fields (i.e. the REF command in curled brackets entered by ALT F9). The table of contents is a special case of such reference and causes the issue, too.

    The system is not frozen completely. In contrast, it “unfreezes” after some minutes (to be prices: after 230 sec, see below). Unfortunately…

  12. Add Tabs to Word

    Please update Microsoft Word so that it can have multiple page tabs like an Excel document. It would be so much more useful, and then it could be used for university work instead of Pages.

  13. Create an accordion effect

    I'm typing a CV and some experiences are less relevant for specific roles.
    I would benefit from a classic "accordion effect", like we see on websites, where I could leave the lesse relevant information hidden under a title l such as "click here to read more" and it would unfold.

  14. paste words into the font you have on your document

    we should be able to paste information from a website into our document and not have to change the font of the information back into the font we have for the rest of the doc. it should automatically paste into the desired font !

  15. Bring back the Word notebook template.

    I recognize that OneNote is meant to function as the template's replacement, but I personally find that Word has far better functionality compared to OneNote. I'm not asking for anything new or advanced, just bring back that template (updated for modern Word of course) and that's all.

  18. Darkmode

    Hi Microsoft,

    can we have darkmode? Now there's darkmode only on the part where writes "home, insert, draw", but how about the document itself? You can take a look on iPad Google Docs, in the night, everything could changed into dark mode, and I wish microsoft docs can do the same thing. Thank you.

  19. Convert all documents in compatibility mode

    I upgraded from Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 to Office Home & Student 2019. All the documents are in compatibility mode. I literally have hundreds of them. It would be great if there was a way to convert all documents in compatibility mode to the newer version instead of having to convert them all individually. To take it one step further it would great if you could select which documents you'd like to convert (check box next to each document) with an option to convert all documents. Hope that helps!

  20. Right Click Functions that allow the same access to functions like bold, Italics, and underline

    It would be beneficial and time saving to have the ability to right click on a word or paragraph and have immediate availability to underline, italicize and bold a word or paragraph. Word for Windows has had this for years and it is a great advantage to someone who needs to quickly add special emphasis to their ideas. Right now when you right click in Word or Mac you get a dropdown box that you have to choose "font" and then it takes you to the options I mentioned. It is slow and cumbersome. I know these functions are in…
