    Let me change the default font for new documents on Word for iOS. I'd like all my styles to be Arial.

  12. Since you updated word fr ipad in May 2017, I cannot save documents at all. Not the ones I create, nor ones sent to me by email. Help!

    You need to fix this as otherwise I shall not be using Word any more, which would be a pity. But if I cannot save documents it's useless to me.

  15. Cross-application authentication (esp. SharePoint SSO)

    Office on iOS is lacking cross-application authentication, especially for SharePoint SSO. For example, when opening a SharePoint Library in Safari, it should be able to open any Office document in the respective application, even if the SharePoint site uses some form-based authentication.

    This works very well under Windows but is lacking in Office on iOS. Given that on newer iOS version, it is possible to share cookies across applications, that should be a feature that is possible to be implemented.
