  1. View/Work 2 Word documents at the same time, like split screen or similar for iPad Pro

    Normally I work in Mac viewing 2 Word documents open at the same time, in iPad pro is not possible with split screen. I want to edit both documents at the same time.

    • Add Footnote and Table of Contents

      We've asked and asked—please respond by implementing support for footnotes and tables of contents. We need the ability to insert footnotes and to update existing footnotes. Please implement the ability to update an existing table of contents, i.e., the <fn-9> function in the desktop version.

      • Need more robust formatting for font, paragraph, and page layout.

        Need more font formatting: add small caps, and add expanded & narrowed character spacing.
        Also, paragraph spacing and page layout are much, much too limited by predefined options: instead, permit the user to enter user-defined numbers for paragraph spacing and page layout margins.

                • Support metadata tagging within SharePoint libraries

                  It'd be useful to be able to tag documents within the Word app. At the time of writing, if a column within a library is marked as 'required', the file fails to upload.

                  • Expand the viewing area with-in Open tab

                    Please allow an expanded area of viewing for the files and folder when using an iPad Pro. When I go to the Open tab and navigate two folders in the last folder doesn't expand enough to read the entire file name. The windows should be adjustable for the user to view the entire name of at least more then what is currently provided.

                      • co-author on my iPad

                        I'd like to be able to co-author on my iPad, so that I can edit in Word under different names, rather than only the main account holder's name. I can do this in Word on the computer, and it's so helpful.

                            As a graduate student, I recently purchased the iPad Pro to replace my computer and use Microsoft word heavily for papers and research. These are two tools I use quite often and would like to see them in the iPad.

                            • Word on iPad freezes when working with large documents

                              Hello,

                              Since the latest update, word on my iPad freezes when i'm working on a large document (500 pages of text). This didn't use to happen and now it is practically unusable. The app freezes for a long time then restarts. I work on this document on my Surface and 2 desktop computers without any issues. I also worked on this document without issue until i updated to last version of word. File is located on my OneDrive for Business location.

                              Thank you,

                              Serge

                                      • Gray Bars on iPad pro after typing a few sentences

                                        When I type in word, after a few lines are written, horizontal gray bars emerge. Is this a bug or is this how word actually works on iPad?
