  1. How about you develop your app so I can actually save a word document to pdf!!!

    Just spent days trying to do this spent hours on the thing, tech support could only suggest deleting and reinstalling the app, why have the export to pdf button on your app, if it doesn’t actually do anything?!?!

    Microsoft can kiss goodbye to my subscription and I will never use another product of theirs again, useless!

  2. Make it easier to prevent documents being deleted accidentally

    When someone clicks on 'delete draft', it should ask 'are you sure you want to delete', like it would on PC, so that if they don't want to delete, they can stop it from being deleted. I recently lost part of a project I had been working on because I accidentally deleted a near 2000 word draft I had worked on for over an hour, all because I accidentally pressed 'delete draft' instead of 'save document'. It incredibly frustrated me, and it took me another hour to rewrite.

  3. Norwegian language (and maybe others) get small i turned to capitalized i.

    Every time I write a small i as a one letter word in Word, it automatically turns to capitalized i. This is only happens on iPad, and only in Word (not PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook etc.). On MacBook Air or PC there is no problem with this. I have uses some time with Microsoft's first line support trying to solve it, but finally he sent me to this site.

    The reason is beacuse the system believe I am trying to write the English word I; in Norwegian "i" means "in" and is a word we often use, but we need to…

  4. Highlight and organize

    I use word for iPad and as a student i really need to highlight using my hand and following the line... At the moment you can highlight, or selecting each word or using your hand but in that way the highlighting do not follow the line, is not straight!! Another problem is that i can’t organize my doc in folders!! Is really sad considering that word is a paid app!

  5. Orphans/Widows Formatting MUST GO

    There needs to be an option to prevent the formatting of widows/orphans on the iPad Pro app. This is becoming incredibly frustrating as a college student when I am typing a paper up on my iPad Pro and have to deal with large areas of white space at the bottom of the page because your program automatically formats it so the entire paragraph moves to the next page. This has cost me grade points. If anything, that format should be removed from the app version entirely, or at least give us the control of being able to uncheck it the…

  8. Support for editing inline Excel tables in Word documents

    'Real' calculation tables inserted into Word documents are currently interpreted as image with no ability to edit them.

    Would appreciate to have the possibility to edit the table data inline or 'tunneled' through Excel app.

  11. Support Bookmarks

    Documents2Go on my Palm Zire (2 meg memory) supported bookmarks: creating, using, renaming, et al.

    Word for iPhone in Office 365 should support Bookmarks as well.

  12. Tab between cells in tables

    Can you emulate the desktop keystroke, ‘tab,’ to move to the next (right) or shift-tab (left) cell in a table? Time-saver!

  13. Bug when saving copy of DOC

    Not an idea, but a bug report. And since there is no bug report page on uservoice.com yet...
    When saving a copy of a DOC file in OneDrive, the app puts the original file name in quotation marks and adds the word copy. If you then tap on Save, it complains about illegal characters. Guess which one it is! Yes, the quotation marks.

  15. Drag and Drop

    It would be nice to be able to Drag and Drop between Excel and Word. It would also be great to drag and Drop from the photos app.

  17. Could you please heavily consider an update that allows iOS users to use context control buttons (like drop down menu, picture insert, etc)

    Enabling drop-down menus, picture inserts, fill in texts--all of the tools available to us users in the developer ribbon-- for iOS users would be a GREAT function.

  18. Open multiple documents (simultaneously)

    I'd like the ability to open multiple documents at the same time, so I can switch easily between them. When switching from one document to another it closes the current one and it takes loading time to open the other doc (which isn't workable in a meeting).

    With something like tabs you can easily switch...
