  2. Separate the spelling differences between English(UK) and English(US)

    Although people do understand both of them, in some formal situation, people need the exact spelling instead of mixing them.

  3. Edit object properties

    It would be great if you'd allow to edit powerpoint oject properties. I want to e.g. set the font, color, background or spellcheck language from within my app on text boxes or the size/location of a selected object etc..

  4. add a Clipboard or Scrapbook feature back into Word for Mac.

    I am a transcriptionist who often types long documents with several speakers' names in them. I need an easy way to collect a bunch of these names in a clipboard that I can easily move from the side of a document into the document. It was a great feature of older versions of Word. And I don't understand why it's not included in your product for Mac users

  6. Update Fabric UI grid classes

    The grid classes on the site (https://dev.office.com/fabric#/styles/layout) are as follows: ms-sm12
    They don't work, if you open the css file (https://static2.sharepointonline.com/files/fabric/office-ui-fabric-core/4.1.0/css/fabric.min.css), you find classes like ms-u-sm12.

    Please update the documentation and add the "-u-".

  7. PowerPoint 2016 Chart filter issue

    PowerPoint chart filter shows "The linked file is not available" when the filter is clicked for the second time.

    When troubleshooting the issue found out the cause as Excel VSTO Add-in which handles "ApplicationWorkbookOpen" Event in ThisAddin.vb. Even without any code in "ApplicationWorkbookOpen" causes this error. If I comment 'Application_WorkbookOpen' then it works fine.

    This happens for other Workbook events as well.

    Posted the same issue with a sample excel add-in in msdn fourm. Please go through for more information.

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/7650df3d-3b60-4598-93ff-4730c945babb/powerpoint-2016-chart-filter-issue?forum=vsto

    Our add-in is deployed for more that 5000 users globally. It will be great if this issue…

  8. Mailto URLs not working in Promoted Links

    Until about 2 weeks ago, we were able to use Mailto: URLs in our SharePoint Online Promoted Links. Now they don't work. When in the list view, the links works fine when clicked on, when in the tile view, nothing happens when you click on the link.
    When looking at the source code, the "click action=" is empty.
    We have used this extensively for Contact Us pages. Is it a bug, or does SharePoint Online not longer support Mailto: from the Promoted Links Tiles view?

  9. Add Office.beforeClose event

    Many times, there's logic you want to execute before the user closes the add-in, such as persisting settings. Currently, there's no way to do that across Excel Desktop and Excel Web. Would be nice if there existed an Office.beforeClose method called before the page closed

  11. Allow add-in to block clicking certain links in the message

    For some security-related add-ins, it is critical for the add-in to be able to detect when a user has clicked on a link in the body of a message. The add-in could then examine the URL to decide whether to let the action proceed or if it seems dangerous, the add-in could block the click and show an error message.

  12. Ability to programatically submitt to the Office Store / AppSource

    Submitting multiple add-ins in many languages takes up some time, especially when you update the add-in frequently with new manifest files or new screenshots. We would like to include this step in our automated deployment process to increase quality and reduce time spent for updating our store registration especially as access to the store is limited to one personal login!

  13. AppSource does not use the translations from the seller dashboard

    It looks like AppSource, that replaced the Office Store, doesn't use the translations that we added to our Office Add-in in the Seller Dashboard. It always shows the description in English.

  18. Content Controls bound to custom xml not updated when opened on Word Online

    We have plain text content controls bound to custom xml. When opening on Word Online the bound content controls should get their data from custom xml. We tried to work around this by using GetOOXml() to get the document's open xml, then update the values on server side, then use InsertOoXml() to insert the updated open xml. But it seems that InsertOoxml() does not support content controls yet.

    I hope either of these two features that we need get supported soon. 1. Update text of bound content controls when opened on Word Online.


    1. InsertOoxml() support updating content controls.

    Thanks,
    Rainier…

  19. I couldn't to send or receive messages all day long.

    What's happening with hotmail? Neither me or my friend were able to send or receive messages all day long! This is rather annoying, does anyone know what's up and when the error will be eliminated, at last?
