Custom spacing of QAT icons
The horizontal spacing of the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) icons dramatically increased with the download of Office Outlook 2016. I can no longer see many of the important QAT icons and using the program is significantly less efficient now. Please restore the ability to display QAT icons in a narrow format. I will not download Office 2016 on my desktop until this issue is resolved because it is so significant. I am considering rolling back my laptop to Office 2013 until the issue is resolved.

I love quick parts, but it'd be nice if it was easier to edit them. Currently if I need to make changes to one I have to use the quick part in an email, select it and make it a new quick part, then delete the old one. It'd be easier if I could just right-click over it and select Edit, then make changes in a rich text editor. Some other enhancements I can think of are:
- Have a more compact quick part menu (or the option to use a compact menu. That would reduce unnecessary scrolling.
- Associate quick parts with Exchange so that they travel with your email profile...or make it easy to export them to a file. It's currently possible to do this by copying the .dotm files in the "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates" folder, but that's not an easy thing for end users to do.

Occasionally I need use a feature repeatedly. I use the Quick Access Toolbar often. Doing an ALT> <num> I can get to the feature in a snap. Having the QA icon in the best location on the QA Toolbar is the problem. If the QA icon I need is far down the line (sometimes not even visible due to having numerous QA icons on the Toolbar) it makes it less than optimal when I have to open More Controls>Customize Quick Access Toolbar>More Commands to move the icons around. It would be great to be able to grab, drag and release an icon right on the Toolbar in order to relocate it. This idea came about as occasionally I need to do the same task repeatedly and having to go through the prior sequence, or alternately having to do ALT>27 for example, is a pain (as compared to being able to easily relocate it to position number 1, 2 or 3). ALT>1, 2, or 3 is a lot more intuitive to do than ALT>27. Thanks for the consideration!
