  1. 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.

  4. Enable the configuration to balance SBCS and DBCS characters in Word Mobile

    In the Desktop version of the Word, there's a configuration to balance the SBCS and DBCS characters for foreign languages (portuguese, french, etc.) characters, usually with accentuation symbols.
    In the mobile version this options is not present. and, sometimes, the rendering of words with accentuation is not done properly, with characters overlapping others.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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. …

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Cannot open PDF password secured.

    Word should collaborate with Acrobat when Word cannot open to 'View it Online', all by itself. To let Word, Object Link Embedded 'OLE', No download to make, saves space on laptop when users opens.

  17. Have a style for tables which prevents ANY changes to that table.

    I have created many complex tables containing a mix of fonts, sizes, indents, line spacings, etc. which no existing style can handle. It should be a simple matter to somehow prevent ANY changes being made to that table (or paragraph, page, etc.) I suggest doing this with a new style. IMPORTANT.

  19. I find it almost incredible that there is no "Mailings" tab in Word mobile applications. users print from mobile apps!!!!

    I cannot believe that I cannot do something as simple as print an envelope from my Word mobile app, Why would Microsoft assume that users would never wish to print & mail a letter from this app considering the widespread use of mobile devices

  20. Mailing merge

    When ready to print envelopes from a mailing database address list, add the ability to print one at a time, stopping between each envelope so another can be added to the printer tray or input slot. The user would then push a "Print Next Address" button. They would do this until the end of the list is reached.
