Enable double-clicking a tag in the footer to open the Tag Editor
Currently, if you double-click a tag in the header or main body of a Word document, the Tag Editor window opens. This is not true in the footer. A workaround is to double-click the footer tag, then double-click somewhere on the doc outside the footer, but this is not user-friendly and is not consistent with the functionality in other parts of the document. A sample is attached that replicates the issue.
I understand this is due to limitations of the Word/Office API, but if this can stay on the radar as something to fix if the Office API gets better, that would be great.
We have reviewed this idea internally, but it has been declined due to Word API limitations. Since we can’t offer this functionality due to the limitation, we recommend opening tags in the header and footer using the “Edit Tag” button in the ribbon. Thank you very much for your idea, and please enter any other suggestions you have to improve our product.
We will certainly keep this in mind for the future in case the Office API is improved!
