  1. Make Autosave work.

    I always work with Autosave on. Somehow, I hit a key that deleted 2,000 words of a work in progress. It would not allow me to undo this, and Autosave apparently never saved anything. Fix. It. Now.

  3. Add support for pasting formatted text and HTML into Word

    Pasting formatted text and HTML copied from web pages into the Pages app works, but this does not work in Word for iPad. It's a critical use case.

  5. 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.

  7. Extra delete button

    I just accidentally deleted my assignment instead of saving it because it deleted it straight away.

  8. Import templates created in MS Word on Mac to MS Word for iOS

    I have a wealth of created templates on MS Word for Mac that I would like to be able to import to Word for iOS. I would be great if this were to become available. For those of us who do a lot of our work on the run and where mobility is of utmost importance, this will be a great feature.

  13. Default font for all styles on new documents

    Let me change the default font for new documents on Word for iOS. I'd like all my styles to be Arial.

    At least let me add a word file as a template....

  15. Provide the Reference tab like it is on macOS

    The Reference tab really needs to be a part of the iOS app for Word. This is especially true for Office 365 subscribers.

  20. 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…
