    • Add support for pasting formatted text and HTML into Word

      Pasting formatted text and HTML copied from web pages into the Pages app works, but this does not work in Word for iPad. It's a critical use case.

      • 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

        • 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.

          • Looking forward to the equations editor in iPad Pro. It’s really what the students of engineering need.

            The tool of Myscript Math Sample are useful, but not perfect because the handwriting area are too small. We need a equation editor with surport of both handwriting and keyboard(better in Latex).

            • Not visible long file name

              App is shrinking long file's names. Not able to see long name of the file. Mac has this solved by the ability to move the right side of the column where the files and folders are listed.

              • Add "Search All Templates" Capability

                Several have asked for custom template search capability but not the ability to search existing MS templates. The "Search All Templates" text box appears in the upper right corner of the Mac/PC version of Word but does not exist in the iOS version.

                A simple work around could be to search templates on Office.com/templates, unfortunately when you find the template you need and download it, it just downloads into the browser page (same result when using Safari and Chrome). There is no mechanism to save it to OneDrive or the Files App on the iOS device. And there is no…

                  Format Painter should be available for iPad and iPhone (iOS).

                      • Size and position of inserted photos/images.

                        Ability to easily size and position of inserted photos/images rather than just by drag and drop. So the use of a dialogue box with size by typing or +/- nudge icons as well as ratio lock and other relevant options.

                            I’d like more proofing symbols (tab and space marks) as well as ability to insert footnotes.

                                • 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.

                                    Word is totally un useful for students without this characteristics, there is no way i can write a paper using apa style on my iPad Pro if word doesnt have this characteristics.... I’m really disappointed, the advertisements and videos said office was exactly like on the Mac

                                        • Fix undo/redo

                                          I can’t tell you how many times I accidentally hit Command+A on my iPad’s Bluetooth keyboard instead of Control+Z, and then I hit backspace very quickly since I’m a fast typer before I realize I just deleted my entire document. Then, Microsoft Word is so stupid that it can’t remember how to undo what I did. It just grays out the “Undo” function, leaving me to hope that I had a backup saved to my iCloud or my OneDrive and that I hadn’t made too much progress.

                                          Microsoft for iPad sucks.
