  1. 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.

    • Option to edit and show table boundaries

      Table boundaries do not show up on documents when not inside Word. So what you see is not what you get. Please correct bug

      • Problems displaying Word files

        The Word apps, downloaded from Apple and Android stores respectively, recognize a different file format and because of that, there are slips of sentences in the next pages, causing clutter, page augmentation, etc. It would be very useful if this discrepancy is resolved, so that there are no differences on the same file, whatever the device or operating system used.

            • Mail Merge for Word on iPad Pro

              I purchased an iPad Pro to upgrade from my old MacBook Pro, BUT there is no mail merge in word for the iPad. This is a disaster as I am unable to print any certificates. I am going to have to return the iPad for a refund and cancel my Office 365

                  • Allow us to create our own customizable default “Blank page/template” with our own default font style, color, margins size etc

                    Allow us to create our own customizable default “Blank page/template”
                    with our own default font style, color, margins size etc. - which gets saved into the same area as all the other templates - so we don’t have to customize the current “Blank page/template” each and every time we start a new document. Just like changing the default “normal template.docx” in the full Word version.

                    Also please add shading of text (I don’t mean highlighting) + a toggle to permanently see the ruler and set it to in inches. Thank you for your help.

                    • Word docs not saving when opened from outlook

                      I opened a word doc that was attached to an email and started editing it. When I went to exit the doc after I had finished everything, there was no option to save it, and I lost a whole night’s work on an assignment due tomorrow. I am furious! I see this bug has been around for 2 years, and Microsoft have not fixed it. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_word-mso_imobile-msoversion_other/edits-lost-in-word-for-ipad-on-document-opened/d5cbaf6c-0500-4fea-9862-b37f8f4722cd

                      • The ability to set the paper size of a new Word document when creating one on an iPad or iPhone

                        I contacted Microsoft support, and they told me that there is no way to set the paper size of a document when using Word for iPad or iPhone. It would be useful to have that ability so that when you send a person the document you created via Word on an iPhone or iPad, the document would print out in the correct size and formatting.

                        • Dropbox aeroplane mode accessing locally saved files

                          IPad office apps allows access to Dropbox files but only if there is an internet connection. With Dropbox you can save files onto your iPad. It would be great to be able to work with these files in the Office Apps while in aeroplane or if there is no internet connection

                          • Ingush spelling dictionary

                            It would be great to have Ingush spelling dictionary available for download from Microsoft official resources.

                            • Add vertical ruler

                              Include option to include vertical ruler. It doesn’t make sense just to have horizontal ruler only!

                                      • Bug: Spell check after dash incorrect (at least in German)

                                        If a sentence is

                                        "Word word word. – Word word word."

                                        Then Microsoft Words spell checker wants the word after the dash not capitalized. But this is the case only with a dash in, not a dash after a sentence.

                                        • Immersive reader not producing sound on IPAD.

                                          I can't get sound when immersive reader is playing in Word for Ipad. Any suggestions?
