Share your thoughts on what you would like to see in future editions of MS Office.

I would like new templates that are fresh and have not been seen in previous versions of office.

A improved saving of html files instead of throwing so much extra bleep into it.

All: HELP of the kind we had in Windows 95 or even 2000 = Much better index.
Half the time I get answers on search in Word that have nothing to do with what I'm looking for. Same thing in Excel, though that one is better because I know it better.

Word: Simpler page formatting. Margin lines and header/footer lines on preview in Word which you can adjust by dragging while looking at what might come out, rather than some imaginary inches from this or that. Excel can do it why can't Word?

Word: Simplify VBA object model and make it sensible. How can a current cursor position with no selected text be called ".selection" :thumbsup:

Excel: simpler way to find addins than sifting through thousands, or so it seems, things we can't even tell what they do. Non VBA way to delete unused/unreferenced names. One point of change for location of code behind custom buttons instead of having to do it button after freaking button ...

Internet connection to help??? only on demand, not as default.

I better stop now. My list has no end :flowers:

i think MIcrosoft needs some sort of customer input for there Office so they know what they could improve on. Yes those you mentioned could be improved.

i'd like to see a version of their password protection that can't be danced around by simply exporting a word doc to a rtf file, changing the text and converting it back to a word doc again ;)
