  1. Add support for pasting formatted text and HTML into Word

    Pasting formatted text and HTML copied from web pages into the Pages app works, but this does not work in Word for iPad. It's a critical use case.

  2. Looking forward to the equations editor in iPad Pro. It’s really what the students of engineering need.

    The tool of Myscript Math Sample are useful, but not perfect because the handwriting area are too small. We need a equation editor with surport of both handwriting and keyboard(better in Latex).

  5. Not visible long file name

    App is shrinking long file's names. Not able to see long name of the file. Mac has this solved by the ability to move the right side of the column where the files and folders are listed.

  6. Sorting (A-Z) Feature in Word Mobile

    This would allow users to sort words or a list in alphabetical order.

  7. Fix undo/redo

    I can’t tell you how many times I accidentally hit Command+A on my iPad’s Bluetooth keyboard instead of Control+Z, and then I hit backspace very quickly since I’m a fast typer before I realize I just deleted my entire document. Then, Microsoft Word is so stupid that it can’t remember how to undo what I did. It just grays out the “Undo” function, leaving me to hope that I had a backup saved to my iCloud or my OneDrive and that I hadn’t made too much progress.

    Microsoft for iPad sucks.

  8. Size and position of inserted photos/images.

    Ability to easily size and position of inserted photos/images rather than just by drag and drop. So the use of a dialogue box with size by typing or +/- nudge icons as well as ratio lock and other relevant options.

  11. Documents are being un-pinned from the top of the “Recent” list

    I have several Word documents that I use regularly and so I have them pinned to the top of the “Recent” list.

    Recently, probably since the update to version 2.19, these documents are being un-pinned from the list although I have not un-pinned them.

    There seem to be two actions that cause this to happen.


    1. Open one of the pinned documents then close it again, with or without saving changes.

    2. Pin a different document to the top of the list.

    This happens on both my iPad and my iPhone.

    The same problem occurs with workbooks in Excel - I have…

  13. Need character spacing on iOS products.

    Add the "Character Spacing" option found already on OSX and WIN products to iOS. Presently, if you want to change the spacing in between characters on an iOS device, you have no options.

  17. Allow user installed fonts in iPad & iPhone

    I can't seem to use fonts that I installed from iFonts or AnyFonts in Word. This feature would really be helpful for many companies.

  18. Developer tools for iPad Pro app

    Can you please implement the developer tool options into the word app for iPad? Due to the lack of being able to fill out forms and use drop down boxes the iOS version is not feasible for my business to use and we have had to use a different program on our iPads than the word program we use on our iMacs at the office.

  19. Need to work on files offline on my iPad

    There are times when I need to work on files and do not have Internet connections to sign-in and be able to edit and save the file. This seems so necessary for people who are on the road, traveling, and on vacation without their Internet hookup. When I can't open and work on and save files, Office 365 is useless and I'll find an alternative. Let me work on it and then upload when I get home to replace the old one. Give me the option to select certain files to work when I'm offline.
