  3. 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.

  5. Add custom keyboards

    I write with the Dvorak setup on my laptop. If I could use it on my mobile, especially the word application, it would be a big help - whether it's Dvorak specifically, or to have a programme that allows people to customise their own keyboard. Android and Apple do allow this, so I hope it doesn't mean I have to leave the Windows platform.

  6. 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

  8. 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.

  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.

  10. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. No longer see progress bar upon saving a document

    This may not be a new idea, but it is a very useful tool as the appearance of the progress meter does assure the user that the document is being used. Do bring it back.
