  1. APA formatting and references for IPad Word version

    Please consider developing an app to a regular full version. I study psychology and I travel. Ipad is ideal device for my school.
    And yet I can’t really use Word because it is not developed to its full version as an app.

  3. Custom Font support on every Office for iPad and iPhone app!

    I work at a company that uses a lot of custom fonts in its documents. I can add custom fonts in the system without issue, but they are not visible in any Office app on my iPad Pro. Pages, Keynote etc work fine, but I need the Office encoding to share files around the office and that removes all formatting.

    This issue has been dragging on for years, please just incorporate the system font picker with the iOS 14 app updates, as Apple made this the requirement to use custom fonts in apps from iOS 14 and on.

  4. Background colour

    As I am dyslexic I know that would help a lot of people with typing and easier reading the text if they could change the background colours for more suitable colours for them, for example as yellow or blue background is very popular to use

  6. Dark Mode

    So many new apps, the Medium app for example, are providing a Dark Mode for ease of use during darkened or nighttime viewing conditions. So, why hasn’t MS Word given us this choice? The eye strain for someone who does a lot of reading, writing, and editing in dark conditions is almost unbearable at times. You may as well shine a lamp in your face while working! But, seriously, it’s time for Microsoft to stop playing catch-up and be the leader they can be. Please, bring Dark Mode to the mobile MS Office apps, especially Word, ASAP! Thank you.

  7. Change default settings. (font, size, margins, line spacing, etc)

    change default font and line spacing. Instead of having to change to Times New Roman every time I use the app, I should be able to set it as my default to avoid that preparation period.

  8. Copy Excel Table Into Word

    I used to be able to copy a formatted table from Excel into Word, as a table with the same format but I could modify column and row height/width, etc. Now all of a sudden after the latest update, it will only paste as a picture, which is blurry, ugly and not at all what I need. Why was this feature removed? Very frustrating as I have always been able to do this and is a simple needed function of daily document creation but is now severely impacted with almost no workaround, other than having to use a completely different…

  9. Create a referencing tool

    A referencing tool would really be beneficial for people doing college/ uni assignments for us to reference websites, books etc.

  10. Envelope and label support

    Support layout/sizes/templates for envelopes and labels plz. Even if not providing full mail merge functions, this would be extremely useful.

    Esp. for users largely working from an iPad PRO, the lack of more advanced features in the iOS version is frustrating at times.

  12. CAN WE GET A FULL DESKTOP VERSION FOR THE iPAD PRO?!

    Could we please get a full desktop version for the iPadOS. This would be so helpful and would generate even more clients for you. There are so many important features I am missing as a student.

  16. Multiple Microsoft Word Instances (windows) support for iPadOS.

    iPadOS supports multiple instances (windows) of a single application. Microsoft Word should support this feature as it is absolutely crucial to the user experience and the users ability to be productive.

  19. iOS 14 custom fonts

    Allow access to custom fonts. Because of the iOS 14 update, all downloaded fonts on any office app no longer work. This is an issue because many users require a specific font that the office does not provide, and can no longer access because it Microsoft hasn’t updated to adopt to the new font system provided by iOS 14.

    Microsoft needs to update to support the new UlFontPickerControler APL in order for users to have access to custom fonts. Which can be activated by a simple click of a mouse. But it is Microsoft that has to apply the update.…
