  1. Word App won't display coloured fonts on iPad

    The Word App on an iPad Air 2 won't display coloured fonts when you change the font colour only default black. Similarly if you use the highlighter it only displays white text on a blue highlight colour. If you download a document with coloured fonts it still only displays black. if you save the iPad Word document in Onedrive and open it on an iPhone using the Word App the font colour has actually been changed in the document, so it seems a display issue with the App on the iPad .
    I have deleted the App, reset the iPad…

              • Navigation and editing hotkeys should work in the iOS Word app as they do in other apps

                When using the Word app in iOS 11 with VoiceOver and a bluetooth keyboard I am finding that a number of the navigation and editing hotkeys do not work in the Word app as they do in other apps. This makes it difficult for the blind user to edit reliably in Word.
                For example, Option+LeftArrow will navigate backward by one word and VO will speak the word in all apps except when using the Word app. In Word, focus is not moved by this hotkey.
                Similarly, Shift+Option+RightArrow will move to the next word, highlight the word, and speak the word…

                • The same kind of “Right click” functions as computer

                  There could be some way to implement by perhaps long-clicking that would give the same options that it does on the computer. For example, having the “Paragraph” option to better format the document, or the thesaurus option as well.

                        • Please include the option that a new section not be “same as previous”

                          When a new section is “same as previous,” we can’t differentiate page numbers and headings for different sections. We need to be able to include both Roman and Arabic numerals for page numbers, as would the the format in a book or dissertation.

                          • The Auto-Capitalization slider in Keyboard Settings should control all auto-capitalization

                            I currently have auto-capitalization turned off, but Word still capitzalizes the first letter after full stops or line breaks. I often need to use lower-case letters at the beginning of a line, and must therefore resort to a frustrating workaround (typing out multiple words before dropping the line down). This tiny feature makes my iPad almost unusable for work.

                            • Insert date/time field

                              Seriously add the insert date/time function, this is really basic. Other fields would be nice, file path, etc., but at least the date/time.

                                • Create an Optional Tutorial In the Microsoft Word App on ios Platforms

                                  When you first download the app there is no tutorial on how to use the app since some of the processes are different on mobile this should get included to give the user a basic run down on how to use the functions of the mobile Word Application. Additionally, this would also be a good idea if you are brand new and just trying out Word for the first time.

                                        • serious flaw in “search” causes application to freeze

                                          August 2018: the latest version of Word for iOS freezes on my iPad after a while when using the search feature. It is not possible to exit the search mode and you are not able to scroll anymore. The only exit seems to be a hard exit (i.e. kiling the application and restarting. This is very annoying and needs to be fixed urgently. I was able to replicate the flaw multiple times.
