  1. 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.

  6. 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.…

  9. Make document thumbnails larger

    Would it be possible to make document thumbnail images bigger -- either by default, or by adding a zoom/magnify option?

    One document looks much like the next in thumbnail view, at least to me (my eyesight's not the best, but it's not the worst, either). I realize that thumbnails are mostly intended for use with photos and other files that consist entirely/primarily of images, but it would be nice to have a thumbnail view of documents that let you at least guess at the content.

  11. 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.

  12. Add support for Sharepoint

    Please add support for (at least) opening documents from SharePoint/SharePoint Online libraries.

  13. Support to edit Office document (word/excel/powerpoint) locally

    I purchased a Win 10 tablet. It's already installed Office Mobile.
    Now I must to go online to edit my document, it's nonsense and funny! It's very uncomfortable and makes me disapointed, there is no wifi connection around my place.

  17. Show/Hide Formatting Marks

    I've just spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to figure out if there is a way (whether through this app or others) to show all the formatting marks in a word document such as spaces, hard returns, tabs, em and en spaces, etc. I've had zero luck. This is super annoying because this is the one thing keeping me from being capable of doing or even reviewing some of my work on my phone. I'm hoping this would be a fairly simple feature to add. It would be so appreciated!

  18. Add a calculater in Microsoft word, Since the equation feature already exist

    I'm an Engineer, my major requires a lot of reports and calculations. I think it will save time if while writing my equation in the report with actual numbers it will be automatically calculated instead of calculating it again either manually or with excel. I think the idea is simple but will have a great response and save time for students and other users.
