  1. Word security.

    Excel file can be secured with password from "File" but Word one has to go to "Preferences" which makes it cumbersome, best for both work same way.
    Word and Excel files cannot be secured with passwords when uploaded to Apple 6 phone. Would be nice to have them secured separate from phone security.

  3. Just do whatever it takes to make password protected attachments open-able.

    Important attachments with password should be simply openable.

  5. Show documents at once

    As iOS 9 split screen does not allow users to show the same app side-by-side, the Word app could implement this and allow users to open two documents side-by-side, or different parts of the same document

  9. View of all pages

    to make navigation easier it would be good if you see all pages on a grid and quickly go to the page you want.

  11. Better support for offline work and cloud services

    My company uses Box and I often use Word while commuting offline. Two things:
    - to open a file from Box, I have to take many steps: ...More to open iCloud document picker, locations, Box, file. The number of steps could be reduced, if I could select Box from the main menu, like Dropbox and OneDrive

  13. Make it easier to comment when in tablet read mode

    When I review a document in order to comment on it, I typically want to hold it as if I were reading something printed on paper. I typically sit on a chair or sofa, hold my iPad in one hand in portait, read and scroll and want to leave quick comments where needed. Currently, if I want to comment, the canvas moves to the left to show the comment column and the keyboard pops up. First of all, I would like to see pop-up comments over the page, so that the text is still visible. Second, if you are holding…
