  1. Bug when saving copy of DOC

    Not an idea, but a bug report. And since there is no bug report page on uservoice.com yet...
    When saving a copy of a DOC file in OneDrive, the app puts the original file name in quotation marks and adds the word copy. If you then tap on Save, it complains about illegal characters. Guess which one it is! Yes, the quotation marks.

  2. "Mobile view" function for iPad

    Hello. I'vebeen using Microsoft Word for iPad for several years and I'm very pleased with it. More than a month ago, an update came. It added the "mobile view" feature. It VERY MUCH easier to work with documents in Split View mode. This function has become simply indispensable for me and all users of the program. But just a few days ago I got a new update for the iPad. In this update this function was removed. I would like you to return the "mobile view" on iPad, because this feature greatly helps with the work and increases the productivity…

  8. Introduce passcode for Word/Excel/PowerPoint iOS apps

    It would be great if Passcode Lock was introduced for the Word/Excel/PowerPoint iOS apps, like what has already been introduced for the OneDrive and Outlook iOS apps.

  12. Orphans/Widows Formatting MUST GO

    There needs to be an option to prevent the formatting of widows/orphans on the iPad Pro app. This is becoming incredibly frustrating as a college student when I am typing a paper up on my iPad Pro and have to deal with large areas of white space at the bottom of the page because your program automatically formats it so the entire paragraph moves to the next page. This has cost me grade points. If anything, that format should be removed from the app version entirely, or at least give us the control of being able to uncheck it the…

  15. Please add navigation pane to iOS Pages!!

    Without a navigation page it's impossible to work on a long document, a research document, or a set of notes with different sections. In long documents it's not really possible to scroll up and down - especially on a mouse-less platform!

  16. Do not capitalize i.

    If iOS is not set to english (keyboard layout, but you can alter all language settings to non-english), i will not be capitalized in native / 3-party apps. Word apparently does not honour this setting.

  17. Improve integration with a wider range of cloud services (including Synology)

    I like using Word (and Excel and Powerpoint) on my iPad but the process for saving changes to a cloud service other than one of the available services (such as OneDrive or Dropbox) is very difficult if not impossible. Allowing a broader range of 'places' to integrate with the apps will make it much easier to work on these files. The app works great with Dropbox but I need to be able to use it with other cloud services

  18. Make iPad Pro Word, PowerPoint and Excel usable without an Office 365 subscription

    Make iPad Pro Word, PowerPoint and Excel usable without an Office 365 subscription, just like on my old iPad Air 2. There is no reason for the app to become useless simply because I do not have an Office 365 sub. I know this was introduced in Nov 2015 ( https://blogs.office.com/en-us/2015/11/11/microsoft-office-apps-are-ready-for-the-ipad-pro/ ), but it has not affected me until now. It is completely unacceptable to make iPad Pro apps absolutely useless due to the fact that I do not have a subscription.
