    • Boarders

      It is easier to use my iPad on the go than laptop. Being able to use a boarder on the iPad would be useful

          • Dokumente mit einem Passwort verschlüsseln.

            Am PC ist es möglich Dokumente mit einem Passwort zu schützen, dies wünsche ich mir auch für das iPad, da ich es gerade für die mobile Version als geeignete "Schutz" Möglichkeit finde.

                • Mendeley plugin & double page view

                  This feature is urgently required for students, as a result, I have to resort to using the PC/MAC version. Double page view would be very useful for revising large amounts of data on the Ipad pro 12.9in on landscape mode.

                  • Editing on iOS apps not available to users with iPads larger than 10.1 inches, please add for low vision users

                    Microsoft iOS apps including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint allow editing on the device if the user is signed in to their Microsoft account. That is, only if they are using a device with a screen size of 10.1 inches or smaller. Many users with low vision opt for using the larger devices, so I hope you would reconsider this restriction to allow users with Microsoft accounts to edit on the larger devices.

                    • Please give iPad Pro users the option to deactivate drawing with the Apple pencil

                      This issue I know is a repeat. But it is NOT resolved as Microsoft wants us to believe.

                      I've had enough of Microsoft deciding to switch my pencil from "Select Objects" to "Draw" mode automatically. This is NOT how Word or any other Microsoft product should work.

                      What are we, returning to caveman days when all we could do was draw? I think NOT..

                      Fix it Microsoft. If I set the Apple Pencil to "Select Objects" then it should stay there until I CHOOSE to set to to "Draw" mode. Not when YOU THINK I want it to change.

                        • Allow headers and footers to be unhooked from style changes.

                          For example, when I try to reformat a/the normal Style, the letterhead gets messed up. If I try and call the header a new Style, it gets messed up.

                          It is normal to base a header on the Normal Style and then change it. I think that the problem is that I use tiny spaces to shift words and when I change the style, all the spaces get set to the size of the letters.

                          • Word on iPhone should resume after unlock

                            If I'm using Word, then the phone locks (manual or timeout) and unlocks (using Face ID) it always opens to the home screen instead of Word. I would like it to take me straight back to Word where I left off in the document I was working on.

                            I have tried both enabling and disabling background refresh, makes no difference.

                                • The two finger swipe-around-on-the-screen gesture should move the cursor (like a mouse) on the iPad

                                  A gesture already exists in other IOS software where you use two fingers to swipe-around-the-screen and move the cursor like a mouse. MS Word currently uses the two finger gesture to Zoom. Since I move the cursor more than I zoom in and out, I'd like to see this gesture repurposed for the mouse-like cursor movement.

                                    • UNDO reliability and behavior

                                      On iPad Pro there are two UNDO icons; one on the on-screen keypad and one on the Word menu.
                                      First: It is often that UNDO does nothing at all.
                                      Second: It is often the UNDO does not perform the undo on the current line being edited, but instead mysteriously jumps to the end of a line or paragraph where I last pasted some text... and begins to undue the characters from the end of the pasted texts. (Why would that even happen?)
                                      Please fix the reliability and behavior of UNDO

                                      • Open and save files on personal NAS

                                        Would be great if we could add our own personal NAS to 'Places' so we are not tied to using third party cloud storage providers.
