  2. Import templates created in MS Word on Mac to MS Word for iOS

    I have a wealth of created templates on MS Word for Mac that I would like to be able to import to Word for iOS. I would be great if this were to become available. For those of us who do a lot of our work on the run and where mobility is of utmost importance, this will be a great feature.

  3. Group objects

    Enable the grouping of objects so that they act like a single object, as in the desktop version of Word.

  4. Needs ability to save to iCloud Drive.

    For using MS Office on iPad, we need to be able to save docs on iCloud. I see OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, etc, but no iCloud. This is really odd.

  5. Recently deleted setting

    When you (accidentally) delete something, you can recover it with a recently deleted setting and carry on working on it. Accidentally deleting something happens to everyone; it’s so annoying!

  6. A proofreading function that corrects grammar and spelling errors

    If anyone if writing a longer piece like me, then it would be helpful to have a feature that will proofread your work for you since it’ll be a lot of work for you to read the whole thing.

  10. Image Resize Measurements

    Up until a very recent update, I was able to resize images inserted into word in iOS (both iPad and iPhone) and the measurements would appear onscreen so I could size them perfectly (the measurements changing depending on if I dragged the corner of the pic to make it larger or smaller). Now the onscreen measurements are resizing images is pretty useless as I still need to check and adjust these images on my Mac just for this. Is something broken? This couldn't have been a conscious choice.

  11. Please insert citation, references and bibliography! It’s really needed!

    It’s really disheartening that with an iPad Pro and a subscription needed, you don’t have the possibility to have a full word experience. The possibility to insert citations, references and bibliografy should be in the stock version. Really upset

  12. Default Font On IPad

    It would be very helpful if we could set a default font on the iPad’s like you can on a laptop or desktop. I use my IPad for work and school every day and it would help out a lot.

  13. Allow fonts to be changed after paper finished.

    I recently had to work on 2 different computers to write a paper. They didn’t have the same fonts listed so I had to use different fonts to write the paper. I thought I could change it later but I found out I couldn’t. Now I have a paper written in 2 completely different fonts and I am going to have to rewrite it on another computer to get it done with just 1 font. The paper is quite long and will take a lot of time to do.

  15. Talk to text!!!

    With my arthritic hands always bothering me, it would be a blessing to just be able to dictate , and watch my words become text!

  16. Reference tab

    I need to insert a bibliography for an assignment, so could you please add Reference tab as in the Desktop version? It would be very useful.

  17. Custom Page Size

    Currently, page sizes are limited to about five or six options.

    Please include the feature of allowing users to set their own preferred custom page sizes. Said feature is already present in Pages (by apple) for iOS. Can’t see why Word for iOS can’t do the same.

    Thank you very much.

  19. USB Drive access on iPadOS

    With the full access of USB drives added to iPadOS, it would be great if you could add the ability to use files directly from the USB Drive on Microsoft Word and Excel

  20. Formatting for Page Numbers, Footnotes, etc.

    Word for iPad provides simple page number and footnotes for documents, but does not allow full formatting flexibility of the full desktop program. Full formatting flexibility of different first page, start with __, etc. and Roman numerals, Arabic numerals, etc. for students and academic writing requirements would ensure greater usability of the app.
