  1. Allow client-side insertion of OOXML

    Currently if you want to update an Office 365 document, the insertion of the OOXML can take a long time. From the conversation below, this is because this is a server-side request. Would it be possible to get a client-side insertion similar to the insertText method.

  3. Wildcard search and MatchWholeWord search don't work wtih tracked deletions

    At present, if there are tracked deletions within a word, that word will not be found by search if either MatchWholeWord or Wildcards are turned on. This is a bug in search, but it is especially crucial to fix for add-ins.

  5. Display the taskpane on the left of the document

    When insert a web add-in (taskpane app) to Word, the taskpane will display on the right of the document as default. I see there is a property called dockstate in XML. Can you provide a function to set the value to make the taskpane display on the left of the document?

  6. Allow add-in to close the browser tab on user action

    In a browser, the add-in iframe doesn't allow the add-in to close the tab. I'd like a "Save & close" type button that would allow my add-in to perform its save actions and then close the browser tab when done.

  7. Allow a way to set the cursor focus back to the Word document, from an Add-In

    When using an Add-in on Desktop Word, the user must click back into the document to set the focus from the Add-in's sandboxed browser environment, back to the document.

    Offering a way to programmatically switch the focus back would enable developers to offer a more seamless UX for editing document content via Add-ins.

  9. Range.search with ignore new lines option - Word online

    Searching for text in office JS is not that flexible. You cannot search for text that has a new line within it in the document. for example what if you want to search for " Hello World! " and in the document what you have is " Hello
    World!". It won't work, I searched for a way to ignore newlines in the Word.SearchOptions but I didn't find it.

  12. Ability to resize Task Pane in Word online, Mac and IPad.

    Word Add in features need to be enhanced to have ability to resize Task Pane in Word online, Mac and IPad.

    Mac and iPad also has limited resize ability and hence taskpane resize is needed

  13. Have the ability to have graph templates save in a way that when you update them they will track through all the graphs in your document

    Right now if I edit a graph template my template changes aren't tracking and I have to go through and make the edits on each graph even though I used a template. I have more than 15 graphs in my document.

  14. Office Add-ins should run in Edge, not IE11

    At the moment Word runs Add-ins in IE11

    IE11 doesnt support ES2016, and is therefore much harder to develop for than all of the other newer browsers (Safari, Chrome, Edge).

    Word should run Add-ins in Edge

  15. Option to embed excel elements in word, Office JS

    Just like we can copy paste elements from excel such as individual cell values, tables, charts etc, into Word and create a link between those two, so that if values are updated in Excel, they are also updated in word.

    I want it to be possible to do the same using Office JS in my word add-in.

  17. Blank Right Hand Pane- Problem with Task Pane and web browser ActiveX control.

    We are encountering an issue that we call the “Blank Right Hand Pane.” Alex on our team has created the attached Visual Studio Project and Problem description. The issue appears to be related to when “Optimize for best appearance” is selected.

    This issue is impacting a large number of our customers.

    We have attachments with details of the problem and description that have been emailed as can not attach here
    Word Adin project shows an example when WebBrowser control ActiveX is failing if “Optimize for best appearance” Is selected for user Interface.
    Result with “Optimize for compatibility”

  18. No direct support to lock document programmatically

    Currently we are adding a Content Control to the entire body and setting its cannot Edit property to true.

    This works fine in Desktop and Mac, but fails in case of Word online and iPad when we have nested Content Controls.

  19. ms word/excel simple way to create new file

    Sir/Madam
    I wish to suggest an improvement option about MS-WORD/MS-EXCEL.
    When we wish to create new WORD/EXCEL file, we right click on old file and select NEW option from it then both old & new files are open.
    1. I wish to improve it as only open New file(Blank file) but not old.
    2. I also suggest another improvement as if we bring/put the cursor on a file (WORD/EXCEL/IMAGE) then the content of that file i.e first page/first half page will appear as a flash i mean file not open until we click
