      If you use the MS Word from OTHER users, it will not autonumber them. The 'fixes' others are saying here will work but only on your OWN document. For those of us working with the documents of others, this is still non-functional.

      Please put this back in..was unable to go back to MS Word for Mac 2011 that had this necessary feature. When working collaboratively with doctoral students on dissertations and master's students on thesis not having comment numbering makes this product useless and almost impossible to use. Comment numbering is one of the items that separates this program from being a cheapo text editor!

                      Apparently some folks using Word 2016 for Mac has the ability to create macros running from a button however the Academic 365 version does not permit this. Please enable this very necessary feature. I moved from Office 2011 for a Mac and discovered too late this is not available in 2016!! Help!

                                  We need this back..why the hell would Microsoft eliminate the most important feature of this program! They re always concerned with making the toolbar 'pretty' but ignore the real hard-core features we need. Who the hell cares WHAT the toolbar looks like, return our IMPORTANT features!!

                                      You can't, you're screwed, MS removed this feature. You can add some numbering back by jumping through hoops but it works inconsistently and will NOT work when you work with the document from OTHER users.

                                        The worst is I tried reverting to MS 2011 (Mac) for that feature and could not use as the entire program was very buggy/crashed ALL the time and was no longer supported. MS has us over a barrel!!

                                          This changing numbers inline does not work with the document of OTHERS that you would edit. MS needs to bring this feature back to have a professional grade word processor, otherwise this is nothing more than a BASIC text editor you would get for free online.
