  1. Arabic for Office for Mac

    Arabic text support is still missing in Office for Mac. Even with Office 2016 Preview for Mac I can't type correct Arabic text in Excel cells.

    • Esperanto support for orthography and grammar for office and Windows

      Office and Windows support more than 100 languages among them also very small languages with less than 10000 speakers. There is always missing support for Esperanto despite the fact that only in Facebook there are more than 300000 Esperanto speakers (f.e. the group Esperanto on Facebook, there all discussions are only in Esperanto has more than 16000 members!). I cannot understand why Esperanto support for Esperanto is missing. Our company (Allsprachendienst Esperanto GmbH, Archstr. 2, CH-8613 Uster 3, http://allsprachendienst.ch) produces several magazines in Esperanto with the help of programmes of the office family. So we have an urgent need…

      • Office 2016 quick access toolbar too wide

        The quick access toolbar is now twice as wide as it previously was. This is not a good thing for people that have taken advantage of this wonderful option. The title bar is so full it's difficult to find space to click on it when I want to reposition it. The filename is pushed all the way to the right and sometime unreadable due to truncation.

        There is a new feature in Office 2016 called Touch/Mouse Mode. It enlarges ribbon icons in Touch mode and reverts them to normal size in Mouse mode. Extend that feature so we can revert…

          • Solve the Word 365/2016 Slow Typing Issue

            Since Word 2016 was published, it has very serious performance issues on devices with high resolution displays like the Surface Book and Surface Pro. As soon as a document is longer than about 1000 words, there is a terrible typing lag, i.e. text appears on screen much slower than you type.
            The typing lag is particularly bad in tables and when markup mode is used.
            This bug is a terrible productivity killer. I can absolutely not understand how it can persist since mid 2015 without being corrected, even more since it mainly appears on Microsoft hardware.

            The bug is reproducible.…

                • Outlook - view with all (unread) email from all accounts

                  I have (and many of my customers also) a few accounts in Outlook. During the day will come many email to all accounts. I want display all new emails in one view. So can Outlook 2016 know:

                  - showing emails from all acounts

                  - showing uinread email from all accounts

                  There can be done with macro with VBA, or redirect all account to one pst (in older version very favorite solution), but both are bad. Define searching pattern with VBA takes lot of time and don't work on 100% (sometimes it's impossible to mark item as read etc..) and redirect…

                  • Bring Picture Manager back to Office bundle

                    MS took picture manager out of Office 2013. Ever since then MANY people have been complaining the the Win 8/10 "replacements" are inadequate. They are not functional matches for Picture Manager, therefore they are not real replacements.

                    Picture manager is available as part of some other free Office tool downloads. But they are for Office 2007 and are soon to be disappeared.

                    Please add Picture manager back to the Office installer.

                    Or, create a standalone installer for Picture manager and include links to that installer in the Office bundles so people can find it easily.

                      • Support modern HTML in email messages

                        The Word based HTML viewer in Outlook lacks support for modern HTML layout features with the result that HTML email and pages in RSS feeds often fail to render properly because they're designed to be read in a browser; not something that's trying to pretend the last decade+ of HTML standardization hasn't happened.

                        The Office team needs to either invest heavily in adding modern HTML rendering support to Word/Outlook; or integrate IE/Edge as a rendering option again.

                        • Office 2016 Activation and installation without an email account

                          As a professional IT person I need to install office 2016 and get these machine into the users hands. I cannot do this when I am required to call in to get an activation and or makeup a fake MS account to activate. This is ridiculous and it makes me want to move the company in another direction. Please fix it.

                            Up through Office 2015 it was possible to pin folders (as well as files) to the Recent Places (Open) menu. This feature was removed in Office 2016, requiring a great deal of unnecessary browsing to find and open our files. Please restore this feature.

This is not a problem for any of the Office 2011 apps on the same machines. For instance, Excel 2011 will reopen the previously open spreadsheets when I restart my machine. Excel 2016 will not.
                              This a big problem...at least for those of us that use this feature to remember where we were and what we were working on (working on multiple documents across multiple application across many days and sometimes weeks). I really think/hope this is a high priority fix…

                                • Have some way to turn Inking OFF for Machines using a stylus

                                  When using a stylus as a pointing device on a Wacom tablet, a Draw tab has been added and Ink is automatically turned on -- there is no way to turn it off, rendering the stylus useless! In most instances, I cannot even return to a mouse as a pointing device without closing the document and re-opening it!

                                  Although I have not yet experienced it, I understand that it happens on Surface Pros too.

                                  This renders a stylus useless as a pointing device in Excel, Word, etc!!!!
