  2. Nynorsk language spelling dictionary must be included in Word app for iOS

    Nynorsk language spelling dictionary must be included in the Word app for iOS
    The Norwegian Nynorsk language spelling dictionary is not available in the iOS app version of Word. This is very unfortunate, as iPads are more and more in use for writing and exams in Norwegian schools, and all students at high school level must write the language.

  4. Highlight and organize

    I use word for iPad and as a student i really need to highlight using my hand and following the line... At the moment you can highlight, or selecting each word or using your hand but in that way the highlighting do not follow the line, is not straight!! Another problem is that i can’t organize my doc in folders!! Is really sad considering that word is a paid app!

  5. problems with functionality since last update

    Since updating Word for IPad, there are some problems that are effecting functionality. In previous versions, when saving a copy of a document you would get the option to save changes in both or just the copy, this option is no longer there. There is also a problem with using functions like making fonts bold or clearing sections of text, at times they will not function at all and the only way to get them working again is to shut down the app and then restart. Using the external keyboard is also problematic, before the update I was able to…

  8. Insufficient memory when loading a custom font

    I want to use a custom OTF-font on my iPad/iPhone. It is installed correctly in iOS and does work with other apps.

    In Word for iOS it says "There is insufficient memory or disk space. Word cannot display the requested font." Although half of the the disk space on my iPad/iPhone is empty.

  11. Bug on latest update (2.7) for IPad Pro

    For some reason, it may just be me, when I go from a pen to the eraser, I cannot then simply click back to that specific pen. I have to click a different pen first and then back to the original pen I was using. This is a huge a annoyance that has appeared in the latest update but probably a very easy thing to fix. The same issue in in PowerPoint but not in OneNote.

  14. On the iPad, when you close a Word file, why does it momentarily show you the OneDrive folder but then go to an info page about the file?

    To open a Word file from OneDrive on the iPad I need to:


    1. Touch the file.


    2. Touch the Word icon at the top to edit it.


    When I'm done I touch the return arrow at the top left. I then see the OneDrive contents again. But instead of just staying there, I get taken to a screen with info about the file I just closed.

    And in order to get back to OneDrive I need to touch the return arrow again.

    Why does it do that? Why can't we just go back to OneDrive and stay there?

  20. Support for editing inline Excel tables in Word documents

    'Real' calculation tables inserted into Word documents are currently interpreted as image with no ability to edit them.

    Would appreciate to have the possibility to edit the table data inline or 'tunneled' through Excel app.
