    1) True. Text boxes do not increase in size automatically. That setting should be allowed.

    2) The movement of text boxes and images in word is really fraught. They jump around all over the place. It is often difficult to select things for movement. There is a rumour that the small incremental movement of boxes and images by pressing Ctrl + arrow keys has been removed in Word 2016.

    3) But one can control the "text wrap" (I think is the phrase) so that the textbox is in front of, behind, tight, in line, etc. with the text. Right click text wrapping.

    I hate the properties panes that appear to the right of the document. Is that what you mean Jusfor? I liked the floating little properties windows. The pane takes up far to much real estate, makes the document too small to see, has a lot of arcane icons requiring that I click around searching for the property that I want to change. The properties box was far better.

    All changes to work GUI should come with the option to stick with the classic/previous way of doing things but If it were possible to stick with the old way of doing things, then people would, and then not pay for the upgrade (tax).

    Seriously?! Has Word removed the ability to move images in small increments?!

    By the way, I use Ctrl + arrow keys for small increment movement in the versions of Word that I use up to 2013.

    I hate the backoffice so much that I want to use an expletive. I never want my document to disappear.

    I hate the new format panes (such as image format pane) that encroaches upon my document from the right too and wish that all dialogues create pop up windows as in in older (<2003?) versions of Word.

    In general please allow users to select legacy versions of all functionality rather than force us to use your new bad ideas.

    I hate the backoffice. I have selected not to see it when I click on Ctrl O and the save icon I have on my quick access ribbon but I would like the file menu sans backoffice back. I often have many documents open and want to see the document as I name and print it.

    I found out how to change the Outlook icon back to yellow (instructions e.g. here
    https://www.outlook-tips.net/tips/change-outlook-2013s-icon/
    when Outlook is not started up, so the first time I launch Outlook I do not confuse the two, but when Outlook starts up, the Outlook icon on the the lask (?) bar at the bottom of the screen reverts to a blue identical to that of Word, and so I also confuse the two 6 times a day. I h ave seen a way of changing several registry settings so that even the the post-launch icon reverts to yellow but these settings did not work on my Japanese language word.

    I'd use Libre Office were it not for the momentum that MS has, In order to maintain its momentum and yet keep selling MS needs to keep making changes so as to differentiate upgrades, and these inevitably include random annoying ones like changing the icons to the same colour in two of the most commonly used programs.

    Good idea. There needs at least to be some way of reducing the number of fonts on display or controlling the order of display (other than by recent choice) because I have to scroll down so far for the ones I want.

    A touch typing practice game might be a relevant addition.
