    Hi Jared,

    Thanks for posting this idea.

    If the custom fonts are downloaded on the user's computer, you can use them on the online document with the following steps:

    1. In the editing mode of the online document, select the content you want to change font;
    2. In the Font Name box on the ribbon Home tab, type the full name of the custom font which has been installed on the computer to change the font.

    While this will font will only take effect on the computers which have installed this font. If a shared document is given a font that other users do not have, although the font name is the custom font, the actual effect of the font will be felled back to the default font on the other users computer/devices.

    Hope this helps and please let us know if you have more questions.

    Thank you and please keep posting more ideas.

    Hi Ramana,

    Thanks for posting the idea.
    Do you mean save the new changes for the document (original instead of a new copy)? Office Online is in auto save mode, which mean it will automatically save every change you made when you are editing online. Thus we do not have any Save button for Office Online. You don't need to click "Save As" button or Ctrl+s to do save. Office Online does that for you automatically.

    Hope this helps and please let us know if you have more question or suggestion. Thanks.

    Hi Sarosh,

    Thanks for your feedback. If you have edit authority of the online Word document (for an example, the document you created or somebody else shared with you with edit authority), you should be able to edit the document online. If you are in view mode, you can click "Edit Document" button then select "Edit in Word Online" option in the drop down list.

    Hope this helps and please let me know if you have more question.

    Thanks and please keep posting more ideas!

    Hi Nancy,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    The Save As does make a copy of the original document and you can also give a new name to the new copy. The original document will be kept as unchanged.

    Please let us know if you see any problem for Save As. Thank you and please keep posting more ideas!

    Hi Adore,

    Thanks for posting this idea. Do you mean Undo of the previous editing and some kids are not able to find the command? Or need some improvement of the Undo? Could you give us an more detailed example for what the kids want to do and what are the problems they are seeing?

    Thank you and we would love to hear your more feedback.

    And, if you are looking for the Navigation Pane in reading view, you can vote for the following idea :)

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting the idea. Do you mean the Navigation Pane? If yes, you can find the function on Word Online as well. The command is on the ribbon View tab named as "Navigation Pane" in editing view. It does not exist in reading view today.

    Please do let us know if you are looking for the Navigation Pane for reading view.

    Thanks and looking forward for more of your ideas.

    Hi Sunomi,

    Thanks for your idea. Perhaps you want to try Comments. The command is in the INSERT tab of the ribbon and you can add your notes as comments to any word/sentence/paragraph of your document. The comments will show on a side pane of the document.

    Hope this helps and please let us know you are looking for something else.

    Thank you and please keep posting more ideas!

    Hi,

    Thanks for the idea.

    Do you want to download a copy to your PC? To do that, you can find the Download command from File -> Save As tab in editing mode.
    So far, the auto save of Office Online will save the changes to the online document automatically when you are editing online.

    Hope this helps and please keep posting more ideas!

    Thanks.

    Hi Monica,

    Did you try to find it from the recent files list on File -> Open tab? If your document is a Word document, you can open any Word document (such as create a new one) then go to File -> Open, your recent visited Word documents should be list on that page.

    Hope this helps and please continue to post more ideas. Thanks!

    Thanks for the suggestion. Are you asking for a Save As command to save a copy online? Today you can find this command from File -> Save As. After the Save As, the original one will be kept and all of the content will be copied to the new one.

    Please let us know if you have further question and looking forward for your more ideas!

    And John, if you want to rename the document in editing mode, you can click the file name in the middle of the header then you can easily rename it inline. Or, you can go to File -> Save As then click the Rename button to give the document a new name.

    Please let me know if you have any question.

    Hi John,

    Thanks for posting this idea.
    Office Online is in autosave mode and it will save your changes automatically when you are editing. You don't need to explicitly click any button to save the changes.

    Hope this helps and please continue to post more ideas. Thank you!

    Hi Rochelle,

    Thanks for posting this idea.
    To insert symbols, you can go to the "Insert" tab on the ribbon then click the "Symbol" button. So far there are only limited symbols there. The happy face symbol is in the list while sad face is not. But you should be able to copy the symbol from another place (such as a website or another document) then paste into Word online. And we will plan to add more symbols in the future.

    Hope this helps and please keep on the posting!

    Hi Brendan,

    Thanks for posting this idea.
    You can find the "Save As" button by go to "File" -> "Save As" tab. This command will allow you to save a copy online.
    If you want to save a copy to your hard drive, you can click the "Download a Copy" button on the same tab ("File" -> "Save As").

    Hope this helps and please keep on posting!

    Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for posting this idea. Do you mean download the online document to the flash drive? Not sure which browser you are using and following are the how-to for browser IE and Chrome.

    If you are using IE:
    1. In your Word Online document, go to File -> Save As tab, you can see the "Download a copy" command
    2. Click the "Download a Copy" command, a pop up dialog will show up in the bottom of the browser.
    3. Click chevron icon along with the "Save" button on dialog. Select "Save As" on the list to choose the destination folder as your flash drive. Then the copy will be downloaded to your flash copy directly.

    If you are using Chrome, you will need to have some setting on the browser for download:
    1. Go to the Chrome browser Settings, search for "Download"
    2. In the download setting, checkmark the option for "Ask where to save each file before downloading"
    3. Then go to your Word online document and click the download button. The browser will ask you to select the destination folder where you can choose your flash drive.

    Hope this helps and please continue to post more ideas!

    Hi Zoltan,

    Thanks for posting this request. As I just answered in another post from you, to switch from edit mode to read mode, you can click the ribbon "View" tab then click the "Reading view" button.
    To switch back to editing view, you can click the "Edit Document" button then select "Edit in Word Online" on the header toolbar.

    Hope this helps and looking forward for your more ideas.

    Hi Zoltan,

    Thanks for the posting.
    For commenting in edit mode, you can select the content you want to comment and right click it using your mouse, then you can find the "Add comment" button in the drop down menu. Also you can go to the ribbon "Review" tab to find the "Add comment" button.

    If you want to change to read mode from the edit mode, you can click the ribbon "View" tab then click the "Reading view" button.

    Hope this helps and please keeping posting more ideas. Thanks.

    Hi all,

    Thanks for bringing this idea.
    Today Office Online is in auto-save mode and the editing changes will be saved automatically. This works in both the solo editing and the co-authoring (multiple people editing) situations.
    Please continue to post your ideas if you have more. Thank you.

    Hi Stion Drew,

    Thanks for bringing this feedback to us. I am sorry to hear that Word Online didn't save all of your work when your computer froze. It is supposed to save it because Office Online is in auto-save mode. It seems there was something wrong with the auto-save when the freeze happened. To help us investigate what happened and improve Office Online, would you mind to provide us a feedback from the same Word document you were working on? Following are the steps. Thank you.

    1. Open the Word document you worked on in Word Online
    2. In the right bottom corner, there is an button for "HELP IMPROVE OFFICE". Click it.
    3. In the bump up feedback dialog, input your feedback then submit. You can just copy your description here to the dialog. And if you can add a few words like "Data loss feedback from UserVoice" will be much helpful.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the feedback. We appreciate it very much. And could you elaborate more on this feature request, such as whether you are looking for the UI language support for Lao and Hmong or the ability to input characters in language of Lao and Hmong? Looking forward for your further suggestion. Thanks.
