  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  5. 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

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. Add handwritten recognition function which could be editable

    Every student or teacher or book writer, does writes on piece of paper and then later to print it, they type it again on PC. This process is time as well as energy consuming. Why not just scan the page ( Microsoft lens) and then just edit it. It would be a great help to many people.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
