  1. Password protect documents

    Please could you include an option of putting a password protect on documents when using Microsoft Word, excel etc on the iPad. I do all my clinical work in work on an iPad now as it’s so much quicker but can’t email the documents as I’m not able to password protect them.

  2. Removing Multiple ‘Recent’ Documents’

    I’m not sure why i cannot choose to remove multiple files from my Home Screen. As it happens, i have documents from 2 years ago that are no longer necessary - why do i have to remove them one at a time by opening the 3 dots then Choosing to manually ‘Remove From Recents’

  3. 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.

  5. Multitasking for the Office App on iPad

    Now the all-in-one office App for Word, Excel and PowerPoint is available. So, it would be great if there are the same multitasking features as in the standalone-apps of Word, Excel and PowerPoint (multiple windows).

  7. Fix the crippling keyboard lag in Word when using a Magic Keyboard

    I have been reading several forums that are screaming for a fix for the issue of lag after approx 1/2 hour of Word use. My partner has been having this issue this evening prompting me to do some research. I am amazed that this issue is so prevalent and has bean issue for so long yet nothing is being done to fix it. So many people trying to complete projects, dissertations, professional qualifications and their precious time is being spent switching their devices on and off or force quitting the app just to make progress. There is enough pressure on…

  9. Global pen size slider instead of per-pen sizes, which is FURIOUSLY inefficient to work with!!

    Make that for ALL OneNote platforms. Windows 10, Android (I don’t use that but it’s badly needed).

  11. Chicago Style

    Please add the Chicago Style format to your pre-formatted texts. This would save a lot of time for many people who need to write papers in this style.

  12. Bookmarking Support Like the Adobe PDF App for IOS

    Hey,

    I realized that the Word App for IOS doesn't have bookmarking support, but when I use the Adobe PDF app for the IOS, it has that support that you can MANUALLY bookmark any page in your document. I was wondering if you all at Microsoft could institute bookmarking support for the Word App. Will you?

  13. 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…

  16. Paint Brush

    I would like a paint brush as in the Desktop Version so that I can paint the style across a section of text.

    Can you not make a much better Pro Version of WORD for iOS? Right now it is really just covering the basics, and I work full-time off an iPad.

  17. 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.
