  1. Import templates created in MS Word on Mac to MS Word for iOS

    I have a wealth of created templates on MS Word for Mac that I would like to be able to import to Word for iOS. I would be great if this were to become available. For those of us who do a lot of our work on the run and where mobility is of utmost importance, this will be a great feature.

  3. Continual delete function accelerates too quickly

    When holding down the delete function, after a few seconds it accelerates too quickly making it hard to control and causing unintended loss of content. Can we choose not to have it accelerate, or can you include and undo function?

  4. Provide option to change ruler measurement units from cm to inches

    I live in Canada. Unfortunately, Word for iOS uses cm units for the ruler, and I cannot currently change it to inches. Hardly anyone in Canada uses cm for Word documents (Microsoft, did you ever check?). We use inches, because it's easier to work with. Please provide an option or setting to let users SWITCH THE RULER TO INCHES. Also, can we also have a vertical ruler?

  6. Two page lay-out for Word

    Allow a setting that would make documents able to have a two page layout. NOT SPLIT SCREEN but two pages beside each other.

  7. JUST LET ME CHANGE MY DEFAULT PREFERENCES

    I shouldn’t be forced to suffer through the garbage person font that is Calibri- No one should have to do that.

    This has been been a default option for so long, and it makes so much sense. The reason you use a dedicated piece of word processing software is for powerful, adaptable word processing features.

    Like CHOOSING A DEFAULT FONT.

  13. Jump to last read position

    It used to be that you had a small tag on the side that would allow you to jump to the last place in the text you were. This was an amazing functionality and yet since this newest update it has completely disappeared. With large documents, that means continuously having to scroll alllllllll the way through the document and try to find my last place. It’s stupid that it doesn’t just automatically start you in the document where you last were, as the iOS feature of touching the top of the screen will automatically take you to the beginning of…

  15. Delete maps

    Can you make an option so that we can delete unwanted maps on word? I made a few maps and now I can’t delete them and they are useless. Thank you

  16. Provide the Reference tab like it is on macOS

    The Reference tab really needs to be a part of the iOS app for Word. This is especially true for Office 365 subscribers.

  19. References function in word

    There should be a reference tab in word for iOS like there is in word for OS. It makes it more difficult to write an assignment and enter references because an outside citation tool has to be used and the reference has to be transferred into the document. It is very time consuming and inefficient.

  20. Issue with "Display for Review" of MS Word for iPad

    Hello, I have a problem with Display for Review of MS Word app for iPad.
    The original five modes of Display for Review were reduced to three modes.
    Two modes (All Markup, Original with Markup) are suddenly missing.
    If I reinstall the app, the two modes come back but it is only for one time.
    They disappear again if I restart the app.
    I am using iPad pro 11 inch (latest generation).
    Thank you.
