    Mistake or not, this is a *highly* desirable option.

    It's obvious that Word designers and programmers don't actually use Word much or they would understand that those of who use it constantly relied on this feature and need it back. The fact that it's been *years* and we're still being ignored just shows that the tail wags the dog in the Word division at Microsoft. No pun intended, but here's a "word" of advice: Don't remove anything that's being used. You don't have to understand it, you just need to pay attention to users, who - for the most part - don't care about design fads. Cool is useless. USABILITY! USABILITY! USABILITY! And yes, I was yelling those words.

    YES!!!

    This new text boundary layout is both stupid and annoying - and it gets in the way of creating decent layout.

    It's also physically debilitating as it's tires your eyes and gives you a headache.

    Allow users to assign the default option for each type of cross-reference.

    Allow users to set their own default action for each cross reference type. I waste a *lot* of time selecting the format I require every time I add a cross reference

    Definitely make it a user preference.

    And while you're at it, add in another option: "reverse Simple Markup" (ie, All Markup *without* Comments so the margins are normal).

    I know you can choose where Comments go, but most of the time having the Comment bubbles in the margin is perfect. But there are times when *not* seeing the comments while continuing to see Track Changes is exactly what you need.

    Yes!

    Most of the highlight colours are too dark onscreen - and only 2 are decent when the document is printed for review.

    This must only be done as an *option*!!!!

    Outside of this list, with 23 years of TechComm under my belt, I have never heard anyone comment that this would be a good idea.

    Don't limit this to predetermined light and medium grays.

    Eyesight is very personal and what works for one person can be horrible for another.

    This is an excellent idea.

    My engineers get very confused when I've inserted a non-breaking space formatting mark between characters. They think I've inserted the degree symbol and have a tendency to change the formatting.

    Yes, please. And make it *Live* Char Count along with *Live* Word Count.

    Excellent idea!

    I've encountered thee situations in the last few days alone where this functionality would have been a godsend.

    Make it an option.

    If I am typing about (and below) an image, I often need to be able to see the image at the same time (a not uncommon TechComm use case).

    In this case, I would *never* want my system to decide where to move the "active" line of text within the window.
