  5. Better support for offline work and cloud services

    My company uses Box and I often use Word while commuting offline. Two things:
    - to open a file from Box, I have to take many steps: ...More to open iCloud document picker, locations, Box, file. The number of steps could be reduced, if I could select Box from the main menu, like Dropbox and OneDrive
    - if I use Word to edit a file stored in an offline folder in Box and save and close it, the file disappears from Word. It is somewhere in an invisible upload queue and only when I go back online, it will start…

  6. Add Page Up/Page Down to hardware keyboard short cuts

    The combination are Cmd or Ctrl +up and Cmd or Ctrl +down, which moved the cursor to the top and bottom of the document, respectively. There is no shortcut to move page by page

  8. Make it easier to comment when in tablet read mode

    When I review a document in order to comment on it, I typically want to hold it as if I were reading something printed on paper. I typically sit on a chair or sofa, hold my iPad in one hand in portait, read and scroll and want to leave quick comments where needed. Currently, if I want to comment, the canvas moves to the left to show the comment column and the keyboard pops up. First of all, I would like to see pop-up comments over the page, so that the text is still visible. Second, if you are holding…

  10. 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.

  12. Critical Bug: Saving to a "mounted" OneDrive shared folder gives access to the whole OneDrive

    Someone shared a folder on OneDrive with me, with edit rights. I "mounted" that folder on my OneDrive (option to "Add to my OneDrive"[1]).

    If I try to create a new document, and save it to that shared folder in my OneDrive, and it works. But Word seems to add the whole account of the folder's owner. It's like if I add a second OneDrive account to my Word, and now I'm able to browse the whole OneDrive of that person (all of the folders). Didn't tried to open any file, but I can browse every single folder there as…

  19. Bug: Spell check after dash incorrect (at least in German)

    If a sentence is

    "Word word word. – Word word word."

    Then Microsoft Words spell checker wants the word after the dash not capitalized. But this is the case only with a dash in, not a dash after a sentence.
