  1. hyperlink - place in document

    It would be great if you could do hyperlinks from page to page in the mobile version.

    The same feature is also needed for PowerPoint mobile too

  2. Fix Mouse Pointer which is broken for resizing tables in Word and Outlook 2016 in Windows 10.

    Fix Mouse Pointer which is broken for resizing tables in Word and Outlook 2016 in Windows 10.

    This issue does not exist for Excel but does in Word and Outlook. The problem was first posted at the URL below in January 2018 but no resolution has been provided for Office 365. I was able to fix on my work computer with a repair to Office 2016, but a repair to Office 365 did not work. This is not only an aesthetic issue. The small black pointer for resizing tables is hard to position and thus wears on your users wrists…

  3. Move app to SD card (external storage) for android phones

    All the MS apps on my android phone are unable to be moved to my default storage (SD Card). This is annoying. I often (once a month) have to uninstall Outlook or Word or OneDrive in order to free up space on my phone. Then I have to reinstall the app if I want to use it. Would not be an issue if MS apps could be stored on the SD Card.

  4. Import the equation editor to the Mobile version

    The equation editor in Word for Windows as a desktop application is necessary for mathematical use of the application, and its absence in the mobile format makes it impossible to work in such subjects with this app.

  7. 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.…

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    Although some believe this is an outdated convention, in reality it is a significant help to readability - especially those with poor eyesight.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

  11. work on multiple documents

    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!

  12. Allow use of custom fonts in Word Mobile

    The .docx files allow to have custom fonts embedded in them. The mobile version of the Word application should be able to use those fonts and render them properly.
    The application should be able to import different fonts into the system, as already happens in the desktop application.

  13. 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.

  15. 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

  20. Action bar should come up when a text is selected

    Apart from copy paste option, some text formating options like in Windows Word should also pop up whenver a text is Selected. Currently keyboard and botton ribbon appear with only 3dots. Please add some text formating buttons like Bold,Underline,Font color, etc on that blank ribbon. It will save it time& improve experience. It should also Come in Reading mode which is another feature we are demanding
