  1. 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

    • Programmatically disable/hide the Ribbon menu

      We are in the process of development for Office 365 based Add-ins for Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
      It would be really nice, if we could have a way to disable/hide the ribbon buttons based on some data against that particular user.

      • Need content Controls found on desktop Excel and Word applications to be avaiable in web version of Excel and Word

        Content controls like found in the desktop version of Excel Word need to also exist on the Web version of Excel Word and function the same. The same controls should be able to be used on the desktop version of Excel and Word and the Web version of Excel and Word. This would allow moving Excel and Word files containing content controls between the desktop and Office 365's OneDrive and SharePoint sites. The Workbooks and documents with content controls would work the same in both environments (desktop and Online). This is a critical need!

          Jim, thank you for your feedback! Please note that there’s no notion of content controls in Excel. Content controls feature is only available in Word.

          Also, the content control API is already available in Word Online. However, content controls are currently not editable in Word Online, and this is currently being worked on. We’ll keep you posted when this is available.

          Thanks!

        • API to point to next and previous paragraph from the current paragraph

          It would be very useful for processing large document to have the ability to access previous and next paragraph from any paragraph object.
          Thanks

          • Word Add-In (Office 365) allways available.

            I want to have my Word Add-in automatically loaded the next time I start Word. Now, I have to add the Add-in every time I start Word.

            • Opt out or in of saving add-in to document

              Saving a document with an add-in panel open, saves the add-in along with the document.

              The next time the document is opened the add-in opens with it. If the add-in is not installed it will be suggested to the user.

              In cases where an add-in generates content for the user the add-in may not be meant for user's clients in which case it would be great to have this functionality as either opt out or opt in.

                  • Bug to fix: Html ordered list last element rendered out of list when bound to RichText Content Control

                    There is a bug I've discussed on MSDN forum:
                    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/cb7b7f3b-c59b-4868-b80f-da6c82b45231/office-api-rich-text-content-control-html-coercion-problem-ordered-lists

                    Basically, when html for an ordered list passed with coercion type html into a rich text content control, last element of list rendered as a seperate paragraph.

                    A fix would be nice.

                    Thanks
