  6. Improve integration with a wider range of cloud services (including Synology)

    I like using Word (and Excel and Powerpoint) on my iPad but the process for saving changes to a cloud service other than one of the available services (such as OneDrive or Dropbox) is very difficult if not impossible. Allowing a broader range of 'places' to integrate with the apps will make it much easier to work on these files. The app works great with Dropbox but I need to be able to use it with other cloud services

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. Insert graphic

    Please add “insert graphic” along with pictures — the menu only lets me insert something from a camera, not all my graphic images.

    I have the latest 12in iPad Pro (Oct 2017) with the latest Apple iPad Pro keyboard attached. Latest iOS installed as of Oct 2017 and also latest MS Office suite on my iPad as of Oct 2017. There’s a bug in MS Word and here’s how to reproduce it:

  15. On the iPad, when you close a Word file, why does it momentarily show you the OneDrive folder but then go to an info page about the file?

    To open a Word file from OneDrive on the iPad I need to:

    1. Touch the file.

    2. Touch the Word icon at the top to edit it.

    When I'm done I touch the return arrow at the top left. I then see the OneDrive contents again. But instead of just staying there, I get taken to a screen with info about the file I just closed.

    And in order to get back to OneDrive I need to touch the return arrow again.

    Why does it do that? Why can't we just go back to OneDrive and stay there?

  18. Show the whole name of a document

    Since the last update word shows the name of the documet until a point. I don‘t like that because the names I give iclude dots and still going on from there. It really stops my work flow. I hate it.
