  2. Permanently Change/Set a New Default Font

    This app is great! However, it would really be EXTREMELY helpful if you were able to permanently change/set your own choice of font so that it is automatically chosen for you when you open a new document and/or add in a text box. The default font for the iPad is currently the “Calibri” font, however this font is not as professional as some of the others. It would be AMAZING if you were able to change/set the font to your own personal preference such as “Times New Roman”. OR you could just change the app so the default font is…

  3. 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. Dark Mode

    So many new apps, the Medium app for example, are providing a Dark Mode for ease of use during darkened or nighttime viewing conditions. So, why hasn’t MS Word given us this choice? The eye strain for someone who does a lot of reading, writing, and editing in dark conditions is almost unbearable at times. You may as well shine a lamp in your face while working! But, seriously, it’s time for Microsoft to stop playing catch-up and be the leader they can be. Please, bring Dark Mode to the mobile MS Office apps, especially Word, ASAP! Thank you.

  6. Mouse/trackpad support for Word for iPad

    In iPadOS 13.4, Apple introduced mouse and trackpad support more broadly into the platform. Word would offer a greatly enhanced user experience by offering full support ie change the cursor for text editing, enable support for left and right clicks etc. Would be great to see.

  7. Insert Citation

  10. We need to be able to password protect our documents and add the thesaurus for iPad!

    As a teacher and a writer, I need to be able to password protect my documents. I use my iPad at home and at work and this feature is something I miss. Also the need for the thesaurus as well as the dictionary is an obvious one!

  11. APA formatting and references for IPad Word version

    Please consider developing an app to a regular full version. I study psychology and I travel. Ipad is ideal device for my school.
    And yet I can’t really use Word because it is not developed to its full version as an app.

  12. Support for multitasking in IPadOS for Microsoft Office. This is crucial. And also shouldn’t be that difficult. Everyone is doing it.

    IPadOS now supports multitasking and this feature is very useful for enhancing productivity. Microsoft Office has not updated their apps for the IPad in this regard and is still lagging behind.One would have imagined that the apps would be updated within weeks as far as this crucial feature is concerned. Please update ASAP.

  13. Navigation pane

    Please add navigation pane support for iPad/iphone, navigating a large document that I have set up with headers is a pain currently. additionally a next page previous page button would be helpful as scrolling constantly can be tiresome.

  18. View multiple pages side by side on iPad

    I really like using Word. But for some reason, on my iPad, there is no option to view multiple pages side by side. I don't mean open multiple documents at once, I mean simply view multiple pages in a document like so:

    http://imgur.com/a/8M94k

    This is a really useful view for typesetting books. And there is even an option under the View tab on iPad to view One Page or Page Width, like in other Word versions. But the option to show Multiple Pages is not there, even on my iPad Pro which has a bigger screen than my Surface tablet.

  19. Copy Excel Table Into Word

    I used to be able to copy a formatted table from Excel into Word, as a table with the same format but I could modify column and row height/width, etc. Now all of a sudden after the latest update, it will only paste as a picture, which is blurry, ugly and not at all what I need. Why was this feature removed? Very frustrating as I have always been able to do this and is a simple needed function of daily document creation but is now severely impacted with almost no workaround, other than having to use a completely different…

  20. 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.
