  1. Adding Harvard Author Date referencing style in word 2016

    in Australia, they use Harvard author date referencing style. The word I am using doesn't have it and I find it very hard to reference my work using other online referencing apps. Hence I am just wondering if you could add the Harvard author date referencing style in the word, it would be really helpful for many many students in Australia

  2. Add macros.

    Despite the power of the processor in my smart phone, Word won't even run simple macros, something I could do 25 years ago with a Tandy PC running two floppy drives.

  3. Capitalize each word option on Word for Android.

    I miss it so much from the PC version. I print a lot of addresses cut and pasted from documents, but so many people write their address with no capitals at all. I miss that one hit to capitalize every word option.

  4. i think you should give rewards like Microsoft based products for using word

    i think you should give rewards like Microsoft based products for using word like for example you get 300 points for typing an essay and it cost 3400 points to get a new surface pro or nokia lumina or something

  5. Cache feature needed- Consumes a lot of CPU all the time

    Even when i am not using Word, it remains in RAM in active mode consuming CPU & battery. Please allow cache of Word in RAM so that it free the CPU when it is not being used

  6. Let us remove the dictation button

    The new button sits on the screen right over the last word on the left and makes it irritating to work on a document when you cant tap the end of the line. An option to move the button or put it on the normal toolbar would be great.

  9. Bring back word count pop up box

    When typing at the bottom of the screen I used to see the page number and word count. Recently the word count has gone missing. It is available on the app on my iPhone but not on my chrome book. Please add the word count back to the pop up box that has the page number.

  10. allow formatting and style options to work

    i spent the better part of a day searching for ways to use style and rulers in my paid subscription to android office word. needless to say, its a wasted effort as the function is not enabled.

    i simply wanted all my paragraphes to span the entire page, yet. i cannot reset the width of a paragraph. some are fine, others only reach 2/3rds across. i find this extremely irritating to say the least.

  11. Remove the incredibly annoying and time wasting Welcome Back popup.

    I see that requests to remove this idiotic "feature" from the Windows versions of Word were made long ago and apparently not acted upon. So migrating a feature that almost all users hate to Android makes no sense. It is this type of arrogance and non-responsiveness that make Microsoft so hated

  13. Ture Black (OLED Mode) in writing mode

    True Black (OLED Mode) when you're in writing mode in Word for Android. Would help save a lot of battery when writing alot of text.

  14. Improve support for external keyboards in RTL languages

    External keyboards work pretty well in LTR languages, but have many problems while switching to RTL languages (as a translator working on both Hebrew and Arabic I can testify that the situation in Hebrew is far far worse). First, the cursor jumps around without any reasonable ored or logic, so it is not uncommon to start a sentence and in a matter of seconds find yourself continuing the sentence in a random place in the document. Second, the alignment is inconsistent with numbers being aligned as LTR which causes terrible issues within the sentences. There are many more issues and…

  17. Recent files list

    Needs an option to switch off the recent files list. I have encrypted doc files on my phone which require a password to open them. But once opened they can be accessed directly from the Recent Files list. There should at least be an option to switch off this obvious security flaw.

  18. Bring back Mobile (Reflow) View

    New ribbon UI for Android no longer offers Mobile View, so text does not rewrap for screen width during editing. Very very difficult to use Word on phone without it. Constant side to side scrolling. Horrible setback for work productivity...I used to write for hours on phone and now can't stand it for more than five minutes. Using Samsung Note 5 and 8.

  19. Auto correct drives me nuts sometimes

    It forcesme to spell suppose in the past tense and the grammer suggestions should actually give you a suggestion. I guess we haven't quite got thier yet Microsoft? I know you can do better than that.

  20. Office 365 Lite

    Nowadays, most people have smartphones, and for us that do not need professional grade documents, but still need advance features not offered in the free mobile apps nor the web apps. I want to ask for Microsoft to create a plan for that. I barely use a computer nowadays. 95% of my use is via a smartphone. therefore I will be waisting a regular subscription to office 365, since I dont have a computer to install the regular desktop apps. my storage needs varies between 10GB to 30GB. running a microbusiness and full time employed. so It makes sense for…
