        • 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!

          • 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.

              • Add SAVE AS option, so I can work offline and or anywhere I want!

                I can't believe I even have to suggest this as some kind of feature. This should already be there.

                  • Bibliography Collector app

                    As a student and researcher, I'm constantly reading articles on my phone or tablet. It's PDF files, books, etc. that I may use as reference for writing something.

                    With this background, I think it would be really nice to have an app optimized for adding entries to my "bibliographic database", witch I can later use in my word documents (I really like the Bibliography function in Word and even created some styles on my own).

                    This database stays hidden on my desktop, and I think it should move to my OneDrive[1] for this app to fill.

                    • Personalisable Do Not auto correct

                      I think that there should be a function of everyone's personal dictionary to be able to stop some words from being unnecessarily autocorrected. For example I write fantasy novels and I often use my Surface to do it but I find it irritating that some of the words I have made up for my novels are constantly being autocorrected, even if they are in my personal dictionary. This doesn't just happen with words I have made up, I have noticed that occassionally proper words sometimes get changed to more commonly used words and there isn't an "undo autocorrect" function like…

                        • 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.

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

                                • Hide empty space

                                  Please allow us to hide the headers/footers so that the text continues with little interruption. They take up a lot of empty space at the moment, which seems pointless and particularly impractical on mobile devices.

                                  • When creating a link to a document on Office 365 I have to click on Share, Create link, Shorten link.

                                    I would suggest making the shortened link the default value. It would save a few extra clicks and several round-trips to the server.

                                        • 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
