  3. Automatic saving when file not one ONE DRIVE

    We are in a day when automatic savings are the norm, especially on mobile devices. Taking the time to manually save a document on a phone or iPad is a thing of the past.
    But if my .doc files are in iCloud Drive and that I edit one of those on my iPad and just close it without taking the time to manually save it, then if I open the same file on my computer, this new version will supplant the others, and I will lose all job done on the iPad. This is not very cool.
    Furthermore, in these…

  6. BUG - Handle switching between apps correctly

    I have the latest 12in iPad Pro (Oct 2017) with the latest Apple iPad Pro keyboard attached. Latest iOS installed as of Oct 2017 and also latest MS Office suite on my iPad as of Oct 2017. There’s a bug in MS Word and here’s how to reproduce it:
    NOTE: I have a PIN and TouchID unlock enabled on my OneDrive app
    1) Open OneDrive app on iPad and view a PDF file
    2) Keep OneDrive open in the background and open MS Word app
    3) Create a new doc in MS Word and start typing something
    2) Switch to…

  8. Tab between cells in tables

    Can you emulate the desktop keystroke, ‘tab,’ to move to the next (right) or shift-tab (left) cell in a table? Time-saver!

  10. Show the whole name of a document

    Since the last update word shows the name of the documet until a point. I don‘t like that because the names I give iclude dots and still going on from there. It really stops my work flow. I hate it.

  12. Add back cursor and magnifying circle on finger press

    In other iOS apps, I'm able to press my finger down on a word during text editing, and it will place a per-letter cursor down wherever my finger is. It will also open a magnifying circle, allowing me to see more clearly where the cursor is. I can then move my finger around to place the cursor and let go when the cursor is where I want it. Previously, I was able do the same thing in Word. All well and good.

    The latest version of Word seems to have lost this feature. In order to bring up the magnifying…

  13. Better help materials for iPhone

    There seems to be virtually no help materials for using Word on an iPhone. There are some for iPad, but not all of the features are the same. Would it be possible to at least have a Quick Start guide and some other basic help on how to use the app?

  14. Insert graphic

    Please add “insert graphic” along with pictures — the menu only lets me insert something from a camera, not all my graphic images.

  16. Display which style is allocated to the selected paragraph

    When using Word on a PC the style associated with a paragraph is visible in the draft and outline view in the style area pane. It is also indicated on the print layout view and the home tab by a border around the style name associated with the selected paragraph.

    As far as I can see there is no way to see which style is allocated to the selected paragraph in Word for iPad.

    Could some indicator of the style for the selected paragraph be added please?

  18. Include the form features on Word for iPad.

    It would be awesome if forms created in word with fields for text can work on iPad.

  19. Support for iOS 11 Files App

    As it stands now if you use the Files app, you can't open and edit an Office file on the iPad. Instead the only option is to Send a Copy to Word, or Excel or PowerPoint. Then you have to save from Word and remember and find the path to save it back to it's original location. NOT efficient at all. I hope this is coming soon; this is preventing me from using Office on the iPad.
