  1. Add Footnote and Table of Contents

    We've asked and asked—please respond by implementing support for footnotes and tables of contents. We need the ability to insert footnotes and to update existing footnotes. Please implement the ability to update an existing table of contents, i.e., the <fn-9> function in the desktop version.

  2. Please add footnotes and thesaurus for iPad

    As a graduate student, I recently purchased the iPad Pro to replace my computer and use Microsoft word heavily for papers and research. These are two tools I use quite often and would like to see them in the iPad.

  3. Needed Features


    1. Control "Paragraph" features, most importantly the ability to increase or decrease line spacing before and after a paragraph. Currently adjusting line spacing is the only option, which is not sufficient.


    2. The ability to view two documents side by side.


    3. The ability to compare documents into a redline comparison.

  8. 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.

  9. Recently deleted setting

    When you (accidentally) delete something, you can recover it with a recently deleted setting and carry on working on it. Accidentally deleting something happens to everyone; it’s so annoying!

  11. Looking forward to the equations editor in iPad Pro. It’s really what the students of engineering need.

    The tool of Myscript Math Sample are useful, but not perfect because the handwriting area are too small. We need a equation editor with surport of both handwriting and keyboard(better in Latex).

  12. Allow user installed fonts in iPad & iPhone

    I can't seem to use fonts that I installed from iFonts or AnyFonts in Word. This feature would really be helpful for many companies.

  16. 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: …

  17. Add support for documents on WebDAV server

    As discussed here (http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/office_mobile-word/word-for-ipad-supporting-webdav-server/7886bc2f-d7f8-4435-b70a-6f523b97eb19) Word for iPad does not support opening documents from a WebDAV server. It uses the MS-FSSHTTPB protocol to get files from a SharePoint server, but does not support WebDAV protocol.
    Please add support to open documents directly from a WebDAV server.

  18. End note reference tab for iOS word app

    In the Word app on iOS you should be able to have a tab at the top so you can connect your EndNoteX8 account and add in references.

  19. 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. Since iPads are popular for students, it would be beneficial to implement the references and bibliography feature.

    It does not seem like a huge update in comparison to what Word is already capable of on iOS. This would help the movement from laptops to iPad far easier as they’re becoming the more popular option for students due to the ease of transport and access etc.
