  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.

    • 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.

      • Ingush spelling dictionary

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

        • 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.

          • Permanently Change Default Font Setting

            Please please create a feature - like on other Word platforms - to permanently change the default font on the Word app. It is an inconvenience to have to change my font every time I want to work with a new document in word

            • Add option to view word count of highlighted text or page

              Assignments have a word count cap and its important to be able to view word count of a page or highlighted text as we can do on desktop

              • Add vertical ruler

                Include option to include vertical ruler. It doesn’t make sense just to have horizontal ruler only!

                • 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.

                  • Bug: Spell check after dash incorrect (at least in German)

                    If a sentence is

                    "Word word word. – Word word word."

                    Then Microsoft Words spell checker wants the word after the dash not capitalized. But this is the case only with a dash in, not a dash after a sentence.

                          • Mail Merge for Word on iPad Pro

                            I purchased an iPad Pro to upgrade from my old MacBook Pro, BUT there is no mail merge in word for the iPad. This is a disaster as I am unable to print any certificates. I am going to have to return the iPad for a refund and cancel my Office 365

                                • Allow us to create our own customizable default “Blank page/template” with our own default font style, color, margins size etc

                                  Allow us to create our own customizable default “Blank page/template”
                                  with our own default font style, color, margins size etc. - which gets saved into the same area as all the other templates - so we don’t have to customize the current “Blank page/template” each and every time we start a new document. Just like changing the default “normal template.docx” in the full Word version.

                                  Also please add shading of text (I don’t mean highlighting) + a toggle to permanently see the ruler and set it to in inches. Thank you for your help.

                                  • The ability to set the paper size of a new Word document when creating one on an iPad or iPhone

                                    I contacted Microsoft support, and they told me that there is no way to set the paper size of a document when using Word for iPad or iPhone. It would be useful to have that ability so that when you send a person the document you created via Word on an iPhone or iPad, the document would print out in the correct size and formatting.

                                    • Protect Office iOS suite by password (Touch ID)

                                      The Office iOS apps allow a backdoor into a password protected Dropbox.
                                      Every other app using Dropbox needs a password or TouchID to access apart from the Office iOS suite which asks once and remembers!
                                      Easy fix: add option for password protect & TouchID to all office apps. Don't expose the user's enire Dropbox - what an obvious security error!

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