  1. Unsaved document recovery option for word for ipad

    Similar to the computer, there should be an option which enables you to access unsaved documents in word, but for iPad. I cant even explain how many times I’ve lost important documents due to my device glitching, word crashing, or me just forgetting to save it. Therefore; i believe this addition would be great for countless people.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  5. Be able to delete folder

    I think it would be good because I think that if you make it by accident you can delete it

  7. 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.

  8. Button to create folder

    I use this app for school. It is a very good app, however, dark mode would be a very good idea, BUT more importantly, I need to be able to create folders to keep my classes organized. I would like an option to creat a folder in the “toolbar” where it says, “new, recent, shared, open, settings”

  9. “Are you sure”

    When you’re going to save your work, you may press at the delete button and your work is deleted. If you do press delete, can a sign come up saying “Are you sure that you want to delete”

  13. Read Aloud function

    Can you guys bring back the Read Aloud feature? The feature use to be under the review tab, but it’s no longer there for some reason. This is on the mobile IPhone app version of Word by the way.

  14. ink editor

    Bring the Ink Editor feature from the Windows Version to iPad. It will make using word with the apple pencil an infinite times more powerful.

  16. Recover Unsaved Files

    There needs to be an option to recover files that were DELTED BY MICROSOFT word. This has happened a few times now. It’s on automatic save, and I’d written 2 pages. The file was deleted after the app froze and there is no way to recover it to my knowledge.

  20. 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
