  1. 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.

  5. Hello I am a student and have a problem with the app

    I have a IPad Pro and Today I was working on a long Homework which took me hours to do. When I finished I pressed on the back button which gave me two options One Delete draft and the other Save. I accidentally pressed The delete draft button therefore all my work written is gone.

    I request that the Delete draft button is not enabled by one click. It should ask you again If you are really sure that you want to Delete this.

    This will prevent accidental loss of data like me

    Please Take this case and ad another…

  6. Form filling for All Office Documents

    Many clients use iPads for mobile experiences. Customers with O365 subscriptions do not want to purchase another subscription
    just so they can fill in forms (that they already have a huge investment in with Office documents).
    It would be really useful to be able to:

    1. Open a new Office form on a mobile device (e.g. iPad, iPhone, Android Phone/tablet, Windows phone/tablet/PC)
    
    2. Fill in the form
    3. Save back to a SharePoint document library, where workflows could then process that form etc.

    The use of Office documents as a form is required by these customers for the following reasons: …

  8. Show documents at once

    As iOS 9 split screen does not allow users to show the same app side-by-side, the Word app could implement this and allow users to open two documents side-by-side, or different parts of the same document

  9. View of all pages

    to make navigation easier it would be good if you see all pages on a grid and quickly go to the page you want.

  12. Need more robust formatting for font, paragraph, and page layout.

    Need more font formatting: add small caps, and add expanded & narrowed character spacing.
    Also, paragraph spacing and page layout are much, much too limited by predefined options: instead, permit the user to enter user-defined numbers for paragraph spacing and page layout margins.

  13. 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…

  17. Handwriting with Apple Pencil very buggy

    Please improve the handwriting and drawing with Apple Pencil in Word for iPad. Writing or drawings always get shifted left when handwriting or drawing. Really annoying

  18. Could you please heavily consider an update that allows iOS users to use context control buttons (like drop down menu, picture insert, etc)

    Enabling drop-down menus, picture inserts, fill in texts--all of the tools available to us users in the developer ribbon-- for iOS users would be a GREAT function.

  20. Drag and Drop

    It would be nice to be able to Drag and Drop between Excel and Word. It would also be great to drag and Drop from the photos app.
