    Agreed, especially the part about multi-levels lists and Word styles. They've been a mess since the classic versions of Word. The whole concept of list templates needs an overhaul.

    You aren't helping your chances by creating separate requests three days apart. It will split your votes. The 4 that you currently have on this will not be added to the 23 that you got on your earlier post: https://word.uservoice.com/forums/304924-word-for-windows-desktop-application/suggestions/32133283-i-want-to-type-in-the-center-of-the-screen-all-the

    This was raised in another thread ( https://word.uservoice.com/forums/304924-word-for-windows-desktop-application/suggestions/10643091-bring-back-offline-help-in-office-2016 ) which has been closed as "Declined". This is SO unacceptable as makes no odds. The stupid response "Thanks for your feedback. Our product help is now online only in order to allow us to deliver better content faster as new Office features, updates, and improvements are released" ignores the fact that internet access is NOT universal, that there are still many black spots which have no coverage, and that leaving us to guess until we find a cell tower is NOT an acceptable alternative. Mind you, it's been years since Microsoft has written a proper help document for Office anyway. Half the time the "help" is nothing more than a series of links to blogs of greater or lesser (usually lesser) relevance. "Allow us to deliver better content". Yeah, right. Allow us to get bonuses for cost cutting, more like. This degrades, not enhances, the user experience. And if more than a handful of people actually knew about this site, there would be a tsunami of protest votes.

    I tend to scroll ro achieve the same effect; it's become something that I do automatically. But yes, I think that this suggestion would be far better. It would be especially useful if you were editing content and could see an equal amount before and after your input.

    Re Mary Branscombe's comment below, it's because (as usual) they did the bare minimum. The feature was restored to the Save As dialog, and is mentioned in the "Latest Updates" pop-up that appears after you upgrade. It was NOT restored to the Open dialog, despite an earlier (pre-)release having it. See:

    We want to let you know that the Word team has heard your feedback, and they’re planning to restore right-click access to AutoCorrect options in Word 2016. If you’re an Office 365 subscriber, you should see this change in a future update.

    As always, thanks for your feedback. We appreciate it!

    I was able to get some actual Help (for once) in Word 2016 when I was looking to see where the once easy-to-locate Autocorrect had been hidden in the post 2003 world. (File menu, Options. Of course. So intuitive. So DISCOVERABLE. Why didn't I think of that?) On that help panel I saw a note dated almost 6 months ago (half a year) that you were "planning" to bring back the right click access to this, which existed as recently as Office 2010. Words mean nothing. Deeds mean everything. There is still no explanation of why this "improvement" was done in the first place. Much like the removal of the recent folders option, I wait with bated breath to see what else Office 2016 has "improved" by dumping features.
