  2. Need more robust formatting for font, paragraph, and page layout.

    Need more font formatting: add small caps, and add expanded & narrowed character spacing.
    Also, paragraph spacing and page layout are much, much too limited by predefined options: instead, permit the user to enter user-defined numbers for paragraph spacing and page layout margins.

  3. Add single column DETAIL directory listing to view choices so long file names can be seen and not fragmented

    I have many file names with similar names, it currently is not easy to find the correct file to open since the View Choices do not include a detail list which would reveal the complete file name

  4. Full filename in OPEN in Word on ipad

    I mostly use Office 365 on my iPad as I am partially sighted. I am on several boards and committees which means I have lots of documents to keep organize which I do by file names. My problem comes once files drop off Recent (where the full file name is available) and can only be accessed using Open (when for some reason the file names are truncated. My life would be infinitely easier if I could see the whole name in Open as well as in Recent.

    Warm Regards, Janine Harris-Wheatley

  5. Automatic Double Line Spacing

    It shouldn't be difficult to set double space or any other default such as font and font size. I bought a new iPad and pay monthly for word as I'm a writer but I spend way too much of my time trying to get this app to work. I currently have no line spacing key on my app!!

  6. Export to PDF on iPhone is unusable due to change of format

    When I am trying to export to PDF from Word on my iPhone, the formatting changes dramatically. The function is thus unusable.

  8. Should incorporate the synonyms function to Word on IOS

    I purchased my first iPad Pro yesterday and now I’m writing my essay on it. I just realised that the synonyms function is not available on Word IOS. It is probably one of the most important function to university students on Word. The sysnonyms feature alone, helped many students to went through their university degrees and their live. I can’t imagine how many students going to fail due to plagiarism, if, without the sysnonyms feature. It has been super useful and helpful on Windows and Mac OS, now it should be there on iOS too !

  9. Navigation pane

    Please add navigation pane support for iPad/iphone, navigating a large document that I have set up with headers is a pain currently. additionally a next page previous page button would be helpful as scrolling constantly can be tiresome.

  12. Clickable checkboxes

    Hello,
    When will MS integrate the possibility to create, check and uncheck checkboxes in Documents?
    I think it is an important Feature.

  13. Add all of the same settings options

    There is no settings menu on my word app for iPad Pro. I think this is redicule. I am an Electrical Engineer and deal with a multitude od formats and must be able to access the same settings as word on the PC. If you truly wish for people to use your software to its fullest than just make it the same for Apple iPad Pro as the PC. It is the future.
    Oh and if I may, keep the processes to executing commas the same as the PC PLEASE! if I have to RE-LEARN A program I have been…

  14. Paragraph Spacing

    I'd love to have the ability to adjust the paragraph spacing in the styles used i a document being edited in iOS Word.

    As much as I want paragraph spacing, it'd be useless to me if I need to apply it to every paragraph manually. Editing the paragraph spacing on the styles is essential, even if I cannot add new styles.

    I recognize there are several other suggestions that include paragraph spacing, but they also include many other things I care less about. I'm trying to keep this suggestion as narrow in scope as possible while ensuring it can have…

  15. View multiple pages side by side on iPad

    I really like using Word. But for some reason, on my iPad, there is no option to view multiple pages side by side. I don't mean open multiple documents at once, I mean simply view multiple pages in a document like so:

    http://imgur.com/a/8M94k

    This is a really useful view for typesetting books. And there is even an option under the View tab on iPad to view One Page or Page Width, like in other Word versions. But the option to show Multiple Pages is not there, even on my iPad Pro which has a bigger screen than my Surface tablet.

  16. Customizable toolbars...or at least a customizable ribbon

    The ability to create custom toolbars of any size or orientation, and position them on the screen in a way that best fits the workflow was a brilliant feature that was killed by the ribbon. If Microsoft won't bring back custom toolbars, then at the very least the ribbon should be customizable.

  17. Single-Spaced Documents Look Double-Spaced in Word Application on iPad!

    Although the Word Application on iPad shows that the line spacing is 1.0, the document appears double spaced. Forum Moderators on Microsoft Community tried to help me with the issue; however, after experiencing the same issue themselves, they suggested that I report the problem here. I’d appreciate it if you could fix the problem. Thank you.

  19. Please add footnotes and thesaurus for iPad

    As a graduate student, I recently purchased the iPad Pro to replace my computer and use Microsoft word heavily for papers and research. These are two tools I use quite often and would like to see them in the iPad.

  20. Paste text into Word does not work when in iPad Split View

    On my iPad Pro 12.9 (iOS 10.3.3) it often happens that I am writing Word document in Split View with Safari open as the secondary app. It often happens that I copy text from a website or the URL, and that when I try to paste it into Word, either nothing can be pasted (so there is no paste option in the pop-up menu) or it pastes whatever was previously on the clipboard.

    I know it is a problem with Word, because when I open the Notes app and press paste, the text or URL selected most recently is pasted…
