  1. 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.

      • Open multiple documents (simultaneously)

        I'd like the ability to open multiple documents at the same time, so I can switch easily between them. When switching from one document to another it closes the current one and it takes loading time to open the other doc (which isn't workable in a meeting).

        With something like tabs you can easily switch...

        • Full version of Microsoft Office

          I think that a full version of MS Office should be released to the ipad. The iPad has more than enough power to be able to run it. If PCs can run it, I don’t see why iPads should have a problem.

          • Ingush spelling dictionary

            It would be great to have Ingush spelling dictionary available for download from Microsoft official resources.

                • 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.

                  • 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!

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • Permanently Change Default Font Setting

                          Please please create a feature - like on other Word platforms - to permanently change the default font on the Word app. It is an inconvenience to have to change my font every time I want to work with a new document in word

                          • 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.
