  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  16. Add Dyslexia font or partner with OpenDyslexic

    If not custom fonts, at least add or partner with an organization to integrate an "anti-dyslexia" font so that we can use the Word Mobile App in the class to help our students.

  17. Как без лишних затрат сил и времени сделать работу Word для Windows 10 mobile удобной и эффективной

    Word в мобильном Lumia 640 LTE открывающийся кнопкой WORD практически не пригоден для работы. Word в том же телефоне , открывающийся кнопкой ПРОВОДНИК очень удобный. Почему бы его не переместить под кнопку WORD? Добавить выделение рамкой папки или файла, с которого перешел временно в другой файл, папку, затем вернулся в общую папку и хочешь его найти среди прочих. Если объектов много, это утомляет, а выходить каждый раз в "недавние" неудобно и это потеря времени.
    Надеюсь, вы отреагируете быстро.

  18. 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. …
