  2. spelling

    There is a problem in Skype for Windows (German version)

    Even when the language is set to English, correctly written English words are getting highlighted as spelling errors and many words written in lower case get automatically switched to upper case.

    This makes messaging a bit cumbersome, as you have to correct almost every message you are about to send ...

  5. hopefully skype have feature Autoresponder for when I out of my office

    An autoresponder email message is a notification that you receive when the person you are trying to reach is out of the office. These messages typically give you (some) of the following information:

    How long the person you are contacting is unavailable (dates, etc.,)
    Who to contact in their absence
    The persons return date

  9. We need the ability to send entire folders. Ten items isn't enough.

    I want to send my family members their files off of the family computer because they moved away. Skype no longer lets you choose one folder to send and you have to send individual files. This is severely inconvenient. Please allow us to send folders instead.

  13. Allow us to change the spell-check language without changing the interface language

    I shouldn't have to change the interface language to change the spell check language in Skype for Desktop. If I want the French spell checker while typing in French, I have to change the interface to French. This shouldn't be necessary. When I work in Word, I don't change the whole interface just so I can type in French.

    Clearly this was designed by a monolingual person who assumed everyone only types in one language.

  15. Text Quote message needs to be reduced

    The current feature of quoting a message just copies and adds the entire message which is very hard to focus on the replied message rather than the message that was read once.

    Kindly reduce the size or characters in the quote and backlink it to the original message but please do not keep the whole message as reply back (quote) in the new message that we want to send.

  16. Fix emojis that don't enlarge

    Most emojis enlarge when they're sent as a single message without accompanying text but there are a few that don't on Skype. Like the smiley with the hearts. It's annoying. I want heart guy to be big.

  18. Multilingual language detect and auto correct

    Most other Microsoft products allow for multiple language dictionaries at the same time with at least some attempt to auto detect which language is in use and then modify auto correct according to that dictionary (understandably, this can be tricky so some errors are unavoidable).

    Skype version 8.61.0.87 still doesn't offer this; is it being looked into? It's an odd disparity to note among the library of Microsoft products and where any user communicates with multiple people in various languages, messaging not only becomes trickier but auto correct becomes an obstacle.
