  3. Full Word functionality

    If we are to pay a subscription fee to use this program, then it should contain the full functionality of the desktop version. For example, I need to be able to insert special characters (diacritics) on documents that I work on and this mobile app does not allow it (but it does allow the insert equation option). I would also like to be able to access a true settings menu so that I can enable/disable things such as auto correct (since I already have it disabled on my Chromebook, but Word keeps doing it anyway), able to open multiple documents,…

  4. 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

  5. Flip or Substitute Words

    As an attorney, I am constantly needing to flip the words Petitioner and Respondent or Plaintiff and Defendant in a document. It would be great if word included a feature similar to replace or find that allowed two words to be inverted or flipped so that they can be interchanged. This could also be helpful for swapping names, dates, etc... from an old document into a new updated one.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. Make "draft," and not "print," the default for starting or reopening a Word file.

    Starting or reopening a file, I almost never want to see it in print mode, so every time, I have select View, then select draft, then close that menu section of the screen before I start working. I just spent an hour with one of your tech support people trying to change the default, even setting it up so he could roam around my laptop himself, but there was no way to make that change. It should at least be possible to change the view default that 365 starts with.

  9. 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. 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.

  15. 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).

  17. 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.

  18. 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.…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
