Office + Editor Browser Extension

  1. Editor Should Not Interfere with Normal Word Selection Behavior

    Currently, if one or more words are underlined by Editor for spelling or grammar suggestions and you try to select and delete rather than use the suggestion, Microsoft Editor intercepts your first attempt. Regardless of whether you highlight the word(s) by double-click or click-and-drag, you must reselect and delete a second time for it to work.

    One workaround is to use an alternative delete method such as backspacing over the word(s) one letter at-a-time, but that shouldn't be necessary.

    Note: This issue was discovered/reproduced in Edge ver. 84.0.508.0 (Official build) dev (64-bit)

  2. Site whitelisting

    Instead of opting for a website blacklisting method, I'd love to be able to add the handful of websites I need MS Editor to run on as a list.

  4. Fix Microsoft Editor extension so that it works in Atlassian Confluence wiki page editor

    The extension doesn't seem to work in the body of Confluence wiki pages in editing mode. It does highlight spelling errors when editing the page title but not when editing the body content

  6. AutoCorrect/AutoFormat for the Web (e.g. suggest to convert ... (three dots) to … (ellipsis))

    Word AutoCorrect and AutoFormat automatically converts some character sequences to another.
    For example, ... (three dots) gets converted to … (ellipsis) and - (hyphen-minus) to – (dash) when enclosed by spaces.

    Getting correct punctuation characters on Web pages is difficult, so they are often left as the generic or incorrect ones generated from the keyboard.

    The Office Editor extension should provide some simplified version of Word's AutoCorrect and AutoFormat that suggests improvements for punctuation and other common symbols (arrows, smileys, …) to help improve text typed on Web pages.

  8. Include Microsoft Editor for Outlook desktop edition

    MS Editor is available for Word and Edge, but NOT on the email client i.e. Outlook desktop... this is bad! I have to go back to Grammarly! Please include the same in Outlook desktop.

  9. Editor should allow more control over suggested Refinements

    I turned refinements off because 80-90% of the time I disagree with the suggestion. Most of my disagreement falls in two categories: (1) I am intentionally communicating uncertainty and don't want to be constantly told to remove such words or (2) I'm intentionally writing in an informal style. Perhaps an optional informal or "relaxed" style setting could mitigate both issues.

  10. Addition of More Than Only One Language

    It would be the greatest deal of help if it allowed us to add more than only one language to correct and send synonymous of what we write on webpages. As I try my best to improve not only my native Portuguese, but English, as well as Spanish, French and Latin too. Oh, speaking of Latin, please it would even help me rather quite a lot more when Classic Latin be increased in Office's corrector.

  13. give synonyms for selected texts

    right now, I think the only way to access the Editor is to spell a word wrong. You should be able to select a word and get synonyms for the word.

  14. Make switching the language faster

    Avoid extra clicks by avoiding the user to go to that new tab settings just to select it. Let us select it right from the popup view.

  15. Microsoft Editor for Mac platform

    I use Microsoft 365 products like Word largely on the Mac; Microsoft Editor would be most helpful if it ran on Word/Office for the Mac and as a Safari extension.

  17. Why can't I add my own words?

    I want to able to add my own words, like my company name. It should just let me accept the spelling and then not tell me again.

  18. Double-space option

    The Editor browser extension identifies two spaces after a period as not being correct per my settings. But there isn't any option in settings to adjust this.

  20. Not working on Wordpress Text Editor

    It's not working on WordPress Classic Text editor. It works on title fields and meta field though. Please look into this.

    PS: Grammarly works just fine.
