  1. Autocorrect should undo it's corrections when switching languages, so wrongfully corrected words are restored

    When writing in a different language, autocorrect takes a while to pick up on that. In the mean time it wrongfully corrects words, because it thinks you are writing in a different language. When autocorrect finally switches language, it should undo these changes and check again in the new language

    • Windows Update 3213624 is installing repeatedly.

      If I attempt to install the MSU manually, it tells me that no applicable versions are installed on my computer, yet every day Windows Update claims "success" in installing this update, over and over again.

          • Support for APFS in MacOS HighSierra 10.13

            MAcOS HighSierra 10.13 comes with new APFS file system.
            It looks like the latest MS Office for Mac does not support it very well.
            MS Word for example is not able to save files and reports that disk is corrupt.
            I suggest to develop a proper support for APFS in MS Office.

            • Improve the download experience when purchasing an office product

              Recently I purchased a product card for Office Home and Business 2016. I followed the instructions for downloading; ie " go to office .com/setup and enter the 25 character Product code and follow the instructions. In my ignorance I entered the url into google and had to chose a site from a large number of options. I chose the wrong one and ended up in a scamming site where I was told that there was a problem and that my product card had been used but to get my download I needed to ring a 1300 number. I did this…

              • fix grammar reporting error

                Word 2013 reports "to advise" as an error. Please fix this. It is annoying when it keeps reporting this as grammatically incorrect. It keeps suggesting advice which is clearly wrong as "to" takes a verb not a noun.

                • Disable Office 2016's spellcheck definitions.

                  I want the list of proposed correct spellings, but I don't need definitions and synonyms displayed. That takes up too much space, and I understand the words once I see the spellings.

                  • Unavailability of recent folders

                    It is extremely frustrating that when one tries to save several Word documents to a particular folder, it is necessary to navigate to that folder each time. In previous versions, the last folder used was always offered as the default. Could this procedure not be reinstated?

                        • fix issue with select all in windows explorer causing accidental deletion of files

                          in windows 10 (or other versions I believe), when you select all files in explorer using Ctrl+A - and then for example you zip those file and then you want to delete these files and keep the zip file. now, because you selected all - the zip file will be also selected after it is created - and if you press shift+del you delete the files and their zip, leaving nothing but a big shock on your face. I think the new file should not be added to the selected files.

                              • Incorrect grammar suggestion: changing "was able to" to "could"

                                Word keeps trying to change "was able to" to "could"

                                This is incorrect. For example:
                                The horse was able to jump over the fence and run away yesterday.
                                The horse could jump over the fence and run away yesterday.

                                These sentences do not mean the same thing.

                                • Allow an option to choose the default open mode for office online documents (Edit/Reading View).

                                  This should have been added when the default was changed from Read to Edit view some time ago. By not providing a flag/switch you have satisfied those who wanted Edit view and effectively ignored what could be the majority who have not contacted you to say they liked the default Reading view. Strangely, Office Online Chrome extension behaves this way for recent files but not when selecting from OneDrive!

                                  • Snipping Tool - Annotate with Rectangle

                                    Rather than only annotating with a free-form pen, users can draw a box around an area. Current work around example involves exporting to Paint then drawing box. This would allow for cleaner and quicker annotations.

                                      • change the auto-correction in MS Office for Mac (german version)

                                        I use MS Office for Mac 2016 in German. Whenever I end a line with my family name (Frei) and press "enter" it automatically changes it to "Freitag" (Friday). Turning off "auto correction" doesn't help at all.
                                        I've been in touch with MS support without success.
                                        It's quite annoying when you make a typo in your family name..

                                        • 400 million users and counting.

                                          LinkedIn needs an auto-translator. Configurable like some of the better browsers. With over 400 million members it not only makes sense but it's good business. Now that MS owns LI hopefully it's just a matter of time. Hopefully, a short time.
