  4. co-author on my iPad

    I'd like to be able to co-author on my iPad, so that I can edit in Word under different names, rather than only the main account holder's name. I can do this in Word on the computer, and it's so helpful.

  5. What is the status of the auto-ink problem fix for the word, excel, and PowerPoint mobile apps?

    The mobile apps for Word, Excel, and the other apps need to allow the option to use an Apple Pencil or other stylus to be used to choose text, etc. as before, instead of going to draw automatically. Office apps were much more useful before this ridiculous change was made. I bought an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil primarily for choosing text in Word, etc., not for drawing!

  8. Please add footnotes and thesaurus for iPad

    As a graduate student, I recently purchased the iPad Pro to replace my computer and use Microsoft word heavily for papers and research. These are two tools I use quite often and would like to see them in the iPad.

  9. Gray Bars on iPad pro after typing a few sentences

    When I type in word, after a few lines are written, horizontal gray bars emerge. Is this a bug or is this how word actually works on iPad?

  14. RTF & text file export from Word iOS

    RTF & simple text files are still in use in many industries. It would be great if Word iOS can export such file format. Thank you.

  15. Bring back "Pick up where you left off" and add in the ability to change the Author/Editor name ON THE APP for iPhone

    These features are missing and at one time, you had the "pick up where you left off" feature. It would also be good to have the ability to change the Author/Editor name ON THE APP for iPhone, OR to have it be the same across devices from the phone to the computer, despite the differences in operating systems. The app for the iPhone and iOS platform is grotesquely behind in terms of compatibility. Fix this.

  16. Centre vertically when reviewing edits/changes

    Please ask MS Word developers to shift where edits appear when clicking next to review. ATM they are ALWAYS at the bottom of the screen. Should be dead centre, as we need to read the context (entire sentence) to decide whether to accept/reject

  17. "OneNote in Word" file format

    Many people might prefer to store and organize their notes in Word files using traditional multi-page "paper" layouts. OneNote layouts don't have boundaries and we can't store and manipulate them like with files.

  20. Reduce lag when drawing with Apple Pencil

    I have a new iPad Pro running the latest iOS and edition of Office. I bought it specifically for the ability to draw on a word document, something I need to do for work. Everything has worked smoothly so far when using few drawn annotations but now, using more several written notes per page in documents of 40-50 pages, the application has crawled to a uselessly slow and laggy speed. I write and nothing happens for several seconds, the screen hangs and scrolling becomes impossible, then the application decides to save, mid-task, etc. It makes the programme virtually useless. Any…
