  2. 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.

  5. Allow us to create our own customizable default “Blank page/template” with our own default font style, color, margins size etc

    Allow us to create our own customizable default “Blank page/template”
    with our own default font style, color, margins size etc. - which gets saved into the same area as all the other templates - so we don’t have to customize the current “Blank page/template” each and every time we start a new document. Just like changing the default “normal template.docx” in the full Word version.

    Also please add shading of text (I don’t mean highlighting) + a toggle to permanently see the ruler and set it to in inches. Thank you for your help.

  14. JUST LET ME CHANGE MY DEFAULT PREFERENCES

    I shouldn’t be forced to suffer through the garbage person font that is Calibri- No one should have to do that.

    This has been been a default option for so long, and it makes so much sense. The reason you use a dedicated piece of word processing software is for powerful, adaptable word processing features.

    Like CHOOSING A DEFAULT FONT.

  15. 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.

  16. Change default font size, Word, iPhone. 11 pt is too small.

    I want to be able to change default font size from 11 pt to a more accessible 12 pt. Right now I only can change the font size of text after I open a doc. When I open the next doc, it's right back to 11 pt. I checked and there's currently no way to change the default font size.

  19. Navigation pane

    Enable navigation pane in view tab.

    Starting a new topic to try and keep this updated as it seems to have been brushed under the rug for a long time now.

  20. 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!
