  1. enable

    I have been working on my ipad and have the autosave option activated; however, it glitched and I lost two hours of work that was very important. A restore unsaved document option for an ipad would resolve this issue.

  2. Solve the problem of WORD files showing as "read only"

    When files are created on a PC and then accessed on an iPad, they show up as "read only" and cannot be edited unless they are duplicated.

    Even though changing the "Protected View" settings changes that for the new files it does not work retroactively - meaning that all the already created files still cannot be edited (unless they are firstly duplicated).

    It's a major issue that a lot of people mentioned online that affects iPad users. Please provide a solution

  3. Enabling the watermark in the Layout Tab

    Students and professionals often need to use the watermark for many documents and it is a great inconvenience to not be able to do it on my iPad that I use for absolutely everything.

  4. Let’s be able to insert bookmarks and link to them within a document

    Let’s be able to insert bookmarks and link to them from within a document. Navigating easily within a document is especially important when working on a smaller screen - as iPads often are - and so it makes perfect sense to have this feature. This idea had been around since 2019 - its not rocket science - but still nothing has been introduced

  13. Byta titel

    Byta titel på dokumentet via appen utan att spara en kopia. Om man till exempel är fler personer som jobbar i dokumentet via Teams behöver man ibland uppdatera titeln, till exempel när man har läst klart och lämnat dina kommentarer, exempelvis genom att skriva in ändelsen ” KLAR” efter titeln. (Det vill säga byta titel på dokumentet.) Det går inte att göra i appen.

  14. Finne ord som rimer på det siste i en setning.

    Det er jo ikke så enkelt alltid å finne ord som rimer. Hva om dere lager en mal som dere kan kalle noe sånt som lage en sangtekst/dikt? Der kan du trykke på en knapp og da finner appen ord som rimer på det siste ordet du skrev på den linja.

  16. 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).

  17. A save button on the top left corner of the screen (similar to a computer)

    When you click the arrow in the top left corner to save a document, it asks if you either want to save the document or delete the draft. If you accidentally hit the delete draft button, then the document is gone forever with no way to recover it. Therefore, a separate save button is necessary to avoid accidentally permanently deleting a draft.

  20. Typing lag / slow key input

    Fix the ludicrous typing lag that frequently strikes.

    It really hampers using Word as a tool to capture quick notes and thoughts on the fly. Typing input can become so slow that it renders typing impossible and you end up forgetting the thoughts you had. I don’t think it’s a sync issue as happens on WiFi as well as mobile data.
