  1. 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…

  2. I can improve Word for my iPad by having my dad downloading a new app.

    I like to type the three things that I learned in Science class this week because my teacher Mrs. Nelson has me do the assignment that she posted onto edmodo on a word document.

  8. 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.

  12. Default snap grid: turning on / off

    When creating a new blank document in Word for iPad (from any of the built-in templates), a default "snap grid" is active (which is also not 90º oriented. A little annoying, let's say...). Would be nice to correct this bug, but also to implement a user tool to enable/disable the snap grip, just as the Word Desktop version has. This permanent snap grid seems to affect lines, forms, ink drawing, etc. Note that Excel and PowerPoint do not suffer this bug.

  14. Provide Line Spacing from 0-3 with fractional increments

    As it is, the best you can do is double spacing.

    When I press Enter, I want to go to the next line with no space.

    This is not a problem in Word for a PC.

  16. Integrate shortcuts into icons

    To illustrate, in my iPad Pro 10.5 , when I press the iBooks app on the dock, I can see most recent books read. Perhaps an addition of things like New Document, Recent Documents, could be added

  20. Bug on latest update (2.7) for IPad Pro

    For some reason, it may just be me, when I go from a pen to the eraser, I cannot then simply click back to that specific pen. I have to click a different pen first and then back to the original pen I was using. This is a huge a annoyance that has appeared in the latest update but probably a very easy thing to fix. The same issue in in PowerPoint but not in OneNote.
