  1. Hide identifying information

    I am familiar with using Word on a laptop but have recently switched to using an iPad Pro as my main work device. I need to be able to provide anonymous comments in track changes, for example when reviewing academic papers. Why is this not an option in Word for iPad?

  5. Please, can you fix the “Kailasa” Font

    It is the only font for the Tibetan, and it is not possible to type both upper and lower letters together, which many words in Tibetan have. The previous font “Microsoft Himalaya” was perfect, but now it cannot be used anymore

  6. The ability to set the paper size of a new Word document when creating one on an iPad or iPhone

    I contacted Microsoft support, and they told me that there is no way to set the paper size of a document when using Word for iPad or iPhone. It would be useful to have that ability so that when you send a person the document you created via Word on an iPhone or iPad, the document would print out in the correct size and formatting.

  8. Protect Office iOS suite by password (Touch ID)

    The Office iOS apps allow a backdoor into a password protected Dropbox.
    Every other app using Dropbox needs a password or TouchID to access apart from the Office iOS suite which asks once and remembers!
    Easy fix: add option for password protect & TouchID to all office apps. Don't expose the user's enire Dropbox - what an obvious security error!

  10. Add vertical ruler

    Include option to include vertical ruler. It doesn’t make sense just to have horizontal ruler only!

  13. Sort Function

    The sort function on iOS has a bug, so it sorts the number 7 after 66. It needs to distinguish between a number and letter. Further it sorts folders and files together.

  14. EndNote Plugin

    Allow an EndNote PlugIn as in MacOS. Citations are very important for academic iPad Pro Users!

  15. Default snap grid: turning on / off

    When creating a new blank document in Word for iPad (from any of the built-in templates), a default "snap grid" is active (which is also not 90º oriented. A little annoying, let's say...). Would be nice to correct this bug, but also to implement a user tool to enable/disable the snap grip, just as the Word Desktop version has. This permanent snap grid seems to affect lines, forms, ink drawing, etc. Note that Excel and PowerPoint do not suffer this bug.

  17. Embedded file support for Word ios

    Every day at work I get Word documents with embedded zip files, pdf’s and excel sheets. Yet I can’t click on them in iOS. I have to get my laptop out, extract the documents out of the Word file to onedrive. Then get my iPad out again to open them. Please add OLE support

  19. Provide Line Spacing from 0-3 with fractional increments

    As it is, the best you can do is double spacing.

    When I press Enter, I want to go to the next line with no space.

    This is not a problem in Word for a PC.

  20. Double underline

    It would be great to be able to double underline text in Word for iOS. A handy shortcut to make this possible would be a bonus too!
