Make the default value of "Require Variable Declaration" in the VB Editor to be True
Please make the default value of the "Require Variable Declaration" item in the Options of the VB Editor of Office programs equal to True rather than False as it was changed to for Office 2010. There should be very, very good reasons for not having this value set (in fact I can't think of any). It is folly to not have it set. Note that this folly was pointed out in the private beta of Office 2010, but we were told it was too late to change it back and it was not changed in Office 2013 or 2016.
I agree that true should be the default, if only to save novice developers from themselves. Developing without Option Explicit is a very, very bad idea.
