  1. Fix the bug where you cannot change the transparency of a picture directly. Nobody has time to first picture fill a shape.

    When I add a picture to a slide, I expect to be able to change the picture's transparency. Having to picture fill a shape first is inconvenient and time consuming especially if the picture's aspect ratio doesn't match the shape. Also, imagine having to change the transparency of 100's of pictures. Do I really need to make 100's of shapes that I will need to throw away? What's worse is that I can change the transparency of a shadow and a reflection of the picture, but not the picture itself. How ironic and frustrating.

      • Reintroduce the scrapbook to Word 2016. I can't believe that this incredibly useful tool is not available.

        Not having the scrapbook is a real own goal on the part of Microsoft. How about putting it back in the next update.

          • Add ability to delete alternate spellings

            Some words have alternate acceptable spellings; I would like to be able to choose a default spelling so that the alternate spellings show up as misspelled. Example: I prefer "judgment" over "judgement", so I want to be able to have "judgement" show up as INcorrect and/or have the option to autocorrect "judgement" to "judgment".

                        In testing the Group Policies for Office 2013 and Office 2016, we set "Block macros from running in Office files from the internet" for Excel, Word and PowerPoint (both Office 2013 and Office 2016). We've created test documents (Excel, Word and PowerPoint) that each contain a macro. For Office 2013, whether any of those 3 files is opened from email, or disk, macros are disabled (i.e the "Blocked Content" banner appears). For Office 2016, if any of those files are opened from an email message, macros are disabled, but if those same files are copied to disk and opened, Word…

                                • Solve the Outlook365/2016 shared calendar drag/drop appointment, new global problem february 2017

                                  Using Outlook 365 shared calendar from any browser and from any users of the subscription we found this problem:
                                  drag/drop operations with any appointment were not applied until we refresh (F5) browser page.
                                  Boring workaround: editing the appointment with double clicking on it and have real-time response.
                                  This happens only on shared calendar, not on own calendar.
                                  Full permission obviously

                                      while resolving my OFFICE 365 BUSINESS ACCOUNT i encountered 2 representatives Ramzan and Shobha Achari. while they were pleasant and informative, they were not easy to understand. HOWEVER RAMZAN tried hard [after i asked him to slow down and speak more clearly] and improved so well we could continue to resolve our issue. HE WAS GREAT. but they...still had a dialect
                                      problem that was hard to understand [at first]

                                        OneNote needs an adjustable default image size when importing images. Currently it defaults to the full width of the note page which is annoying when there are many images to import and all of them must be resized individually.
