  1. Set new file name with Word.DocumentCreated

    When creating a new document, there needs to be the ability to set the initial file name for the new document. Not save the document, just define a name to make it easier for users to follow company standards. The user can be free to change the name when first saving the document.

  2. Ability to insert a floating picture/image and adjust top/left position and text wrapping

    Similar to insertInlinePictureFromBase64() I need an option to insert an image that floats above or below the text and can be positioned with top and left coordinates, relative to page, margins and so on. Or the ability to change the "inline" pictures to floating pictures. These will need to work in headers and footers as well.

  3. 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.

  5. Implement API in Word.js to get control of Office's red curvy underline

    I want to show context based errors in word for bengali language in Word. If I can get access to the mentioned API, it will make the work better. Manual implementation is difficult as when I want to export the doc as pdf, I want the underline to be gone (something that happens in Word automatically)

  8. Word.Body.removeBreak() method

    There is an ability in WordApi 1.1 to insert a break into the Body object, but it is impossible to remove/undo a page break.

    It would be awesome to have such a method.

  11. 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?

  12. Wildcard search and MatchWholeWord search doesn't work with 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.
