  1. Nynorsk language spelling dictionary must be included in Word app for iOS

    Nynorsk language spelling dictionary must be included in the Word app for iOS
    The Norwegian Nynorsk language spelling dictionary is not available in the iOS app version of Word. This is very unfortunate, as iPads are more and more in use for writing and exams in Norwegian schools, and all students at high school level must write the language.

      • Add Table of Contents feature to iOS version

        Table of Contents (ToC) Is an essential function of generally all documentation, why is this not available yet? Please add this feature to all versions of word. I especially need it on iOS right now.

        • Provide the Reference tab like it is on macOS

          The Reference tab really needs to be a part of the iOS app for Word. This is especially true for Office 365 subscribers.

          • JUST LET ME CHANGE MY DEFAULT PREFERENCES

            I shouldn’t be forced to suffer through the garbage person font that is Calibri- No one should have to do that.

            This has been been a default option for so long, and it makes so much sense. The reason you use a dedicated piece of word processing software is for powerful, adaptable word processing features.

            Like CHOOSING A DEFAULT FONT.

              • Word App won't display coloured fonts on iPad

                The Word App on an iPad Air 2 won't display coloured fonts when you change the font colour only default black. Similarly if you use the highlighter it only displays white text on a blue highlight colour. If you download a document with coloured fonts it still only displays black. if you save the iPad Word document in Onedrive and open it on an iPhone using the Word App the font colour has actually been changed in the document, so it seems a display issue with the App on the iPad .
                I have deleted the App, reset the iPad…

                • The same kind of “Right click” functions as computer

                  There could be some way to implement by perhaps long-clicking that would give the same options that it does on the computer. For example, having the “Paragraph” option to better format the document, or the thesaurus option as well.

                    • Open multiple

                      I work for a law firm and need to open multiple documents so I can cut and paste some items from one document into another without having to open and close so much.

                      • Custom page size

                        It would be great to have an option to cutomize the page/document size.

                        • References function in word

                          There should be a reference tab in word for iOS like there is in word for OS. It makes it more difficult to write an assignment and enter references because an outside citation tool has to be used and the reference has to be transferred into the document. It is very time consuming and inefficient.

                          • Insert date/time field

                            Seriously add the insert date/time function, this is really basic. Other fields would be nice, file path, etc., but at least the date/time.

                              • Problems displaying Word files

                                The Word apps, downloaded from Apple and Android stores respectively, recognize a different file format and because of that, there are slips of sentences in the next pages, causing clutter, page augmentation, etc. It would be very useful if this discrepancy is resolved, so that there are no differences on the same file, whatever the device or operating system used.

                                    • Referencing on Ipad version is essential for anyone using the ipad as a productive tool.

                                      In text citation us very important for producing articles at tertiary level otherwise word is useless. I can’t use my ipad to do assignments since I cannot reference making word and my ipad very limited near to useless as a productive tool.

                                      • Retain formatting when pasting into other apps

                                        We've noticed that the Word iOS app doesn't seem to copy the formatting when we paste it into other apps it loses the formatting. This causes friction as the user needs to then change all the formatting within the app to match what was in Word.
