    Hello, my company uses Azure IRM. When will we be able to edit docs protected by other users? Right now I can only edit docs I protect.

      • Drag and Drop

        It would be nice to be able to Drag and Drop between Excel and Word. It would also be great to drag and Drop from the photos app.

        • Open documents

          It would be most helpful to be able to have 2 or more documents open simultaneously

            • Hello I am a student and have a problem with the app

              I have a IPad Pro and Today I was working on a long Homework which took me hours to do. When I finished I pressed on the back button which gave me two options One Delete draft and the other Save. I accidentally pressed The delete draft button therefore all my work written is gone.

              I request that the Delete draft button is not enabled by one click. It should ask you again If you are really sure that you want to Delete this.

              This will prevent accidental loss of data like me

              Please Take this case and ad another…

                • View and/or edit two Word documents at the same time on iPad Pro (iOS)

                  Please consider allowing iPad users to view and/or edit two Word documents at the same time. The iPad Pro (particularly the 12.9" model) has ample screen real estate to support two documents.

                  Thank you.

                    • Drop down menu access on mobile devices

                      There should be a way to use drop down menus created on the desktop version of MS Word and use them on the mobile version of MS Word.

                      • I definitely miss a function

                        There should be a function to choose the side distance by youself. Like honestly four selection option aren't the best for a student. I am now in the situation to use specified data for an essay , but now i have to use an other app to write it.

                                • Should incorporate the synonyms function to Word on IOS

                                  I purchased my first iPad Pro yesterday and now I’m writing my essay on it. I just realised that the synonyms function is not available on Word IOS. It is probably one of the most important function to university students on Word. The sysnonyms feature alone, helped many students to went through their university degrees and their live. I can’t imagine how many students going to fail due to plagiarism, if, without the sysnonyms feature. It has been super useful and helpful on Windows and Mac OS, now it should be there on iOS too !

                                    As a teacher and a writer, I need to be able to password protect my documents. I use my iPad at home and at work and this feature is something I miss. Also the need for the thesaurus as well as the dictionary is an obvious one!

                                    • Single Line Spacing

                                      Single line spacing between paragraphs would be a very useful tool to have. At the moment, it only allows 1.0 line spacing.

                                      • Make gridlines in tables show as dotted lines, but invisible when printed

                                        I use tables to lay out virtually every document I write. Although I can make a table in Word on my iPad, I need to finish the document off on my PC as I need to make the table gridlines invisible. Laying a document out with the help of tables is a technique I was taught at college so I'm sure many others do this too and would benefit from this upgrade.

                                        • Could you please heavily consider an update that allows iOS users to use context control buttons (like drop down menu, picture insert, etc)

                                          Enabling drop-down menus, picture inserts, fill in texts--all of the tools available to us users in the developer ribbon-- for iOS users would be a GREAT function.
