  1. Add text formatting in quick steps

    I love Quick Steps in Outlook but why don't you provide text formatting options in the actions, for reply text as an example? That would be an awesome addition that would save a ton of time having to use Format Painter every time I use a Quick Step.

    • Bad way of inserting online pictures

      Hallo. I totally dislike the way I need to insert online pictures in the new Office 2016. In Word 2010 p. ex. it was possible to insert online pictures but still being able to work in Word. Now I need to open a dialog, select the Bing Search, look for a single picture that I want and then insert it. Those are three clicks whereas I only had to do two to open the insert image window on the right in Word 2010 and then add as many pictures with just one one or two clicks when I need them.…

          Could you please add a 'Send and File' function. users who have migrated from Lotus Notes really miss this feature. Very useful for those who use folders for filing everything

              Make the 'Window Border Shadows' the ame as the Windows 10 Operating System. The design elements are incredibly inconsistent.

                • Make UI consistent re Highlight tool

                  This article sums up the inconsistency of how the highlight feature is handled across Office apps:
                  http://new.office-watch.com/2015/highlighting-text-in-word-powerpoint-excel-and-outlook/

                  Upgrade Word/Excel highlight to handle ALL available colors.
                  Add find by specific highlight color (copy color from text, paste into find box to translate into RGB)

                  • In Outlook Calendar - add an FYI option

                    Right now we can ACCEPT, TENTATIVE, DECLINE. Sometimes we are not attending but would still like the info in the calendar. It would be great if there was an FYI button. That way we can keep it in the calendar without someone thinking we are or might be attending. Thank you!!

                    • Outlook - insert and edit html source code

                      Outlook 2016 has lost the ability to insert html as text and restoring that feature would be a start. But I think that should be just the start, why not give full html code editing support.

                          When I insert hyoprlink in Excel 2016 there is still so retro-retroish dialog from Office 2003 or earlier. It's even unresizeable. Adding hyperlinks tons a day I find it very sad.

                          • Make the file tab a different color

                            I have been using dark theme for a while and wanted to report that the fact that the File tab is the same color as the Home tab on the ribbon is annoying. I keep clicking File instead of Home which overlays the screen with the welcome screen. In the previous version, it had a different color, and that helped preventing wrong clicks. Can we change it back to the way it was and minimize wrong clicks?

                            • Office 2016 MFA with App-Password didn't work

                              Did you activate MFA in Office365 (Windows Azure) the Office 2016 didn't accept App-Password for OneDrive for Business or Sharepoint.

                              So Users must use the Authenticator App for Login.
                              This is not good, users didn't like that. So, implement using App-Password in ALL Office 2016 Apps

                                A feature I've been eager for since many years already would be a simple right click \ collapse all sections in OneNote. I have some OneNote books which contain hundreds of sections. Whenever I sync to a new PC or reinstall my PC, I need to go through each and every one of them to collapse them again. Very irritating and easily fixed with an easy feature.

                                  When viewing outlook on my laptop (landscape) I run with the reading pane on the right of the messages list. When I dock my laptop, I move my mail to a side screen that is in portrait format and I would like the reading pane to recognize it is on a portrait display and automatically move to below the messages list.

                                    quick access toolbar is too wide and has not just affected how i like to work, but how effective I am from a time standpoint.

                                    • Bring back custom install in Office (deployment tools is a joke)

                                      Microsoft destroyed the install process for the average user.

                                      I've spent over 6 hours messing with office 2016 deployment tool and a config.xml file, and THE SAME FILE shows different results in different machines. Here is an example:

                                      <Configuration>
                                      <Add SourcePath="D:\" OfficeClientEdition="64">
                                      <Product ID="O365ProPlusRetail">
                                      <ExcludeApp ID="Access"/>
                                      </Product>
                                      </Add>
                                      </Configuration>

                                      In one machine this works as expected. On another it simply does nothing. In one machine the setup splash screen shows the icons of office applications being installed. On another it just shows a big Office logo.

                                      In another machine I can use the same XML to remove Access after everything…

                                      • Add justify for text Alignment to Onenote

                                        Onenote has right-to-left and left-to-right and center
                                        Alignments, but it doesn't have justify. please add this option.
