  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Make it easier to prevent documents being deleted accidentally

    When someone clicks on 'delete draft', it should ask 'are you sure you want to delete', like it would on PC, so that if they don't want to delete, they can stop it from being deleted. I recently lost part of a project I had been working on because I accidentally deleted a near 2000 word draft I had worked on for over an hour, all because I accidentally pressed 'delete draft' instead of 'save document'. It incredibly frustrated me, and it took me another hour to rewrite.

  6. A Night Time/Dark Theme Option For Night Time Writing/Editing

    It would be awesome to have the option to switch to a night/dark theme in word app where the background is black and text is white, for those who write at night. It would be easier on the eyes. Even on the lowest brightness setting on my iPad isn’t enough. I would love to have the option to write at night without word being bright to look at during night time.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  14. Please insert citation, references and bibliography! It’s really needed!

    It’s really disheartening that with an iPad Pro and a subscription needed, you don’t have the possibility to have a full word experience. The possibility to insert citations, references and bibliografy should be in the stock version. Really upset

    To avoid different appearances of documents on desktop and on tablet (e.g. different page breaks!), automatic hyphenation should be implemented in Word for iOS too

  18. Multiple Microsoft Word Instances (windows) support for iPadOS.

    iPadOS supports multiple instances (windows) of a single application. Microsoft Word should support this feature as it is absolutely crucial to the user experience and the users ability to be productive.

  19. Default Font On IPad

    It would be very helpful if we could set a default font on the iPad’s like you can on a laptop or desktop. I use my IPad for work and school every day and it would help out a lot.
