  1. 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.

  5. 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

  6. Allow editing document opened from email before saving (currently read-only)

    When I open a Word document from an email (and from another app through the share sheet), I would like to start editing the file immediately, before deciding whether and where to save it (I may even be offline, so I cannot save into the cloud, until I am back online). This is the case on the desktop.

    On my iPad, the file will always be read-only until I have decided where to save it. This distracts my workflow.

    I can try to save it on my iPad, but then I have to think again to upload it to the…

  7. Word UI bug on iPad in Print Layout

    On iPad, when I am using Word to view a document in Print Layout view, a half-translucent image of four pages often mysteriously appears over the document I am using, rendering the document nearly unusable. Here's a screenshot from my iPad:

  8. Highlight and organize

    I use word for iPad and as a student i really need to highlight using my hand and following the line... At the moment you can highlight, or selecting each word or using your hand but in that way the highlighting do not follow the line, is not straight!! Another problem is that i can’t organize my doc in folders!! Is really sad considering that word is a paid app!

  9. Bug when saving copy of DOC

    Not an idea, but a bug report. And since there is no bug report page on uservoice.com yet...
    When saving a copy of a DOC file in OneDrive, the app puts the original file name in quotation marks and adds the word copy. If you then tap on Save, it complains about illegal characters. Guess which one it is! Yes, the quotation marks.

  11. Do not capitalize i.

    If iOS is not set to english (keyboard layout, but you can alter all language settings to non-english), i will not be capitalized in native / 3-party apps. Word apparently does not honour this setting.

  12. Introduce passcode for Word/Excel/PowerPoint iOS apps

    It would be great if Passcode Lock was introduced for the Word/Excel/PowerPoint iOS apps, like what has already been introduced for the OneDrive and Outlook iOS apps.

  15. problems with functionality since last update

    Since updating Word for IPad, there are some problems that are effecting functionality. In previous versions, when saving a copy of a document you would get the option to save changes in both or just the copy, this option is no longer there. There is also a problem with using functions like making fonts bold or clearing sections of text, at times they will not function at all and the only way to get them working again is to shut down the app and then restart. Using the external keyboard is also problematic, before the update I was able to…
