  1. Why so many updates... and why so laggy in typing?

    I am a peripatetic teacher visiting many schools and keeping plans in OneDrive and using word. Nearly every time you update I have to reload all my student notes wasting precious time as I cannot access them in schools as I don't get wifi access straight away... sure,y there must be a way of not having to redownload files after an update as it is almost weekly that you do an update! I'm using an iPad Air 1 which has also got a typing lag ... come on Microsoft ... do I really need to change the software I'm using. …

    • This may not be a new idea

      This may not be a new idea but I think it is wrong to have a time limit to activate Word especially after having paid for it. This is the very first time I have ever seen this and I have downloaded lots of free and lots of apps I had to pay for and have never had a time limit or even a requirement that something had to be activated. I think this is actually a fraudulent incident and should be changed.

        • Really hope you are not closing this (and Excel/PowerPoint) down - has dissappeared from search on PC

          I really hope that you are not closing this down as it is really useful for small form-factor tablets where you don't need and don't want a full desktop experience (and don't want to "waste" a licence on it).

          • Dictionary

            You need to replace the add new word to dictionary section that was in the earlier versions.

              • Add an autosave toggle on the title bar

                Currently Office Mobile suite use autosave. It's convenient while making us frustrated when we make some changes if we only want to scan the original file. A toggle on the titlebar (or being the first item on the Ribbon menu for phones) will remind us the editing status, and to lock the document whenever we want.

                • At least, One Windows Phone Made Available

                  I just wanted to say that today, on Black Friday, I went to the Microsoft store to see and feel the HP Elite X3. I wanted to see, if I wanted to buy one, once the price lowers. I am in no hurry, as I am very happy with my 950XL. However, during a conversation with my dad today, I was reminded how Windows Phones are continually dying and not being seen as coming back to life at all in the near future. My dad thinks, I should start looking at another phone and set aside my Windows Phone love.…

                  • Whole Word document view in W8.1 on Lumia 640 lx lte.

                    I cannot see whole imported document on this large screen, only part of it. I have to slide through piece by piece. It is annoying. Zoom out is not possible.

                        • Restore ability to check for 2 spaces after a period.

                          Although some believe this is an outdated convention, in reality it is a significant help to readability - especially those with poor eyesight.

                          Older versions of word had this, but Word 365 does not.

                                • Split screen

                                  Split screen is very useful feature in the desktop Edition which is missing in the mobile application. It's mainly important in editing large documents and translations and adding it to the mobile application will make it much more useful.

                                      At present, it is impossible to open two documents at the same time. Upon opening a new document the existing document is closed. Please allow work on multiple documents.
                                      Thanks!

                                        • Add word count

                                          Please add word count. As a translator, this is a very important feature without which I simply can't work on Word Mobile.
                                          Thanks
