  1. 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.

  2. EndNote Plugin

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

  3. 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.

  5. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

  9. Add a cover / title page

    It would be nice to have the possibility to add a cover / title page on Word for iOS just like the desktop version.

  10. References function in word

    There should be a reference tab in word for iOS like there is in word for OS. It makes it more difficult to write an assignment and enter references because an outside citation tool has to be used and the reference has to be transferred into the document. It is very time consuming and inefficient.

  11. Mail Merge for Word on iPad Pro

    I purchased an iPad Pro to upgrade from my old MacBook Pro, BUT there is no mail merge in word for the iPad. This is a disaster as I am unable to print any certificates. I am going to have to return the iPad for a refund and cancel my Office 365

  13. Create ability to set default language for spell check in Word app, regardless of region setting on iOS. Ex.

    I live in Germany so for ease of use my iOS region is set to Germany (this way I get local news and phone numbers are formatted properly) but when I use Word I most frequently use it in English. It would be helpful if I didn’t have to change the spell check feature over to English on every new document I create and could instead set a default language.

  14. BUG - Line/ Arrow Connectors do not snap and stay connected to shapes

    When you drag a line or arrow connector between two shapes the snapping handles do not appear and no connection is made.

    This feature does work on PowerPoint for iPad so it appears to be a bug that needs fixing in Word for iPad

  15. Please allow the referencing apps like Mendeley to be functional on iPad version of Word. Without this feature educators might stop using it

  18. Support Bookmarks

    Documents2Go on my Palm Zire (2 meg memory) supported bookmarks: creating, using, renaming, et al.

    Word for iPhone in Office 365 should support Bookmarks as well.

  19. Integrate shortcuts into icons

    To illustrate, in my iPad Pro 10.5 , when I press the iBooks app on the dock, I can see most recent books read. Perhaps an addition of things like New Document, Recent Documents, could be added

  20. Allow editing document opened from email before saving (currently read-only)

    When I open a Word document from an email (and from another app through the share sheet), I would like to start editing the file immediately, before deciding whether and where to save it (I may even be offline, so I cannot save into the cloud, until I am back online). This is the case on the desktop.

    On my iPad, the file will always be read-only until I have decided where to save it. This distracts my workflow.

    I can try to save it on my iPad, but then I have to think again to upload it to the…
