  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.

    • Ingush spelling dictionary

      It would be great to have Ingush spelling dictionary available for download from Microsoft official resources.

      • Make iPad Pro Word, PowerPoint and Excel usable without an Office 365 subscription

        Make iPad Pro Word, PowerPoint and Excel usable without an Office 365 subscription, just like on my old iPad Air 2. There is no reason for the app to become useless simply because I do not have an Office 365 sub. I know this was introduced in Nov 2015 ( https://blogs.office.com/en-us/2015/11/11/microsoft-office-apps-are-ready-for-the-ipad-pro/ ), but it has not affected me until now. It is completely unacceptable to make iPad Pro apps absolutely useless due to the fact that I do not have a subscription.

        • Full version of Microsoft Office

          I think that a full version of MS Office should be released to the ipad. The iPad has more than enough power to be able to run it. If PCs can run it, I don’t see why iPads should have a problem.

          • Support for iOS 11 Files App

            As it stands now if you use the Files app, you can't open and edit an Office file on the iPad. Instead the only option is to Send a Copy to Word, or Excel or PowerPoint. Then you have to save from Word and remember and find the path to save it back to it's original location. NOT efficient at all. I hope this is coming soon; this is preventing me from using Office on the iPad.

            • Highlight and organize

              I use word for iPad and as a student i really need to highlight using my hand and following the line... At the moment you can highlight, or selecting each word or using your hand but in that way the highlighting do not follow the line, is not straight!! Another problem is that i can’t organize my doc in folders!! Is really sad considering that word is a paid app!

              • Insufficient memory when loading a custom font

                I want to use a custom OTF-font on my iPad/iPhone. It is installed correctly in iOS and does work with other apps.

                In Word for iOS it says "There is insufficient memory or disk space. Word cannot display the requested font." Although half of the the disk space on my iPad/iPhone is empty.

                • Do not capitalize i.

                  If iOS is not set to english (keyboard layout, but you can alter all language settings to non-english), i will not be capitalized in native / 3-party apps. Word apparently does not honour this setting.

                  • End note reference tab for iOS word app

                    In the Word app on iOS you should be able to have a tab at the top so you can connect your EndNoteX8 account and add in references.

                    • Please add tabbed windows for multiple documents and side-by-side viewing.

                      Please add browser-like tabs to view/edit multiple documents; Please allow two (or more on 12.9" iPad Pro) documents to be viewed side-by-side, like safari for iOS does.

                      • problems with functionality since last update

                        Since updating Word for IPad, there are some problems that are effecting functionality. In previous versions, when saving a copy of a document you would get the option to save changes in both or just the copy, this option is no longer there. There is also a problem with using functions like making fonts bold or clearing sections of text, at times they will not function at all and the only way to get them working again is to shut down the app and then restart. Using the external keyboard is also problematic, before the update I was able to…

                          • Orphans/Widows Formatting MUST GO

                            There needs to be an option to prevent the formatting of widows/orphans on the iPad Pro app. This is becoming incredibly frustrating as a college student when I am typing a paper up on my iPad Pro and have to deal with large areas of white space at the bottom of the page because your program automatically formats it so the entire paragraph moves to the next page. This has cost me grade points. If anything, that format should be removed from the app version entirely, or at least give us the control of being able to uncheck it the…

                                Without a navigation page it's impossible to work on a long document, a research document, or a set of notes with different sections. In long documents it's not really possible to scroll up and down - especially on a mouse-less platform!

                                  • Improve integration with a wider range of cloud services (including Synology)

                                    I like using Word (and Excel and Powerpoint) on my iPad but the process for saving changes to a cloud service other than one of the available services (such as OneDrive or Dropbox) is very difficult if not impossible. Allowing a broader range of 'places' to integrate with the apps will make it much easier to work on these files. The app works great with Dropbox but I need to be able to use it with other cloud services
