  1. MS office 365 should work on iPad exactly as office 2007 on a standard non Apple Laptop. Why change a winning fromula. This is crazy

    let MS office 365 operate like previous good versions of office (MS 7) . 365 doesn’t support some basic functions on words and excel - SAVING , SAVING AS etc. This is crazy. The FILE is so so confusing -

      • Insufficient memory when loading a custom font

        I want to use a custom OTF-font on my iPad/iPhone. It is installed correctly in iOS and does work with other apps.

        In Word for iOS it says "There is insufficient memory or disk space. Word cannot display the requested font." Although half of the the disk space on my iPad/iPhone is empty.

        • Possible to change the default typography settings

          When writing a paper, it would make it a lot easier if it was possible to make your own typography. So that you can change the default settings. I’m currently writing a big BA paper using my iPad and I don’t want my headlines blue and want to be able to change all headlines etc. instead of having to change each one manually. Maybe I want to change the font of the typography as well. Thank you.

              • Open documents

                It would be most helpful to be able to have 2 or more documents open simultaneously

                • Tab between cells in tables

                  Can you emulate the desktop keystroke, ‘tab,’ to move to the next (right) or shift-tab (left) cell in a table? Time-saver!

                  • Support for editing inline Excel tables in Word documents

                    'Real' calculation tables inserted into Word documents are currently interpreted as image with no ability to edit them.

                    Would appreciate to have the possibility to edit the table data inline or 'tunneled' through Excel app.

                    • Orphans/Widows Formatting MUST GO

                      There needs to be an option to prevent the formatting of widows/orphans on the iPad Pro app. This is becoming incredibly frustrating as a college student when I am typing a paper up on my iPad Pro and have to deal with large areas of white space at the bottom of the page because your program automatically formats it so the entire paragraph moves to the next page. This has cost me grade points. If anything, that format should be removed from the app version entirely, or at least give us the control of being able to uncheck it the…

                      • Include the form features on Word for iPad.

                        It would be awesome if forms created in word with fields for text can work on iPad.

                        • How about you develop your app so I can actually save a word document to pdf!!!

                          Just spent days trying to do this spent hours on the thing, tech support could only suggest deleting and reinstalling the app, why have the export to pdf button on your app, if it doesn’t actually do anything?!?!

                          Microsoft can kiss goodbye to my subscription and I will never use another product of theirs again, useless!

                          • Could you please heavily consider an update that allows iOS users to use context control buttons (like drop down menu, picture insert, etc)

                            Enabling drop-down menus, picture inserts, fill in texts--all of the tools available to us users in the developer ribbon-- for iOS users would be a GREAT function.

                            • Hello I am a student and have a problem with the app

                              I have a IPad Pro and Today I was working on a long Homework which took me hours to do. When I finished I pressed on the back button which gave me two options One Delete draft and the other Save. I accidentally pressed The delete draft button therefore all my work written is gone.

                              I request that the Delete draft button is not enabled by one click. It should ask you again If you are really sure that you want to Delete this.

                              This will prevent accidental loss of data like me

                              Please Take this case and ad another…

                              • Change default font size, Word, iPhone. 11 pt is too small.

                                I want to be able to change default font size from 11 pt to a more accessible 12 pt. Right now I only can change the font size of text after I open a doc. When I open the next doc, it's right back to 11 pt. I checked and there's currently no way to change the default font size.

                                    We are in a day when automatic savings are the norm, especially on mobile devices. Taking the time to manually save a document on a phone or iPad is a thing of the past.
                                    But if my .doc files are in iCloud Drive and that I edit one of those on my iPad and just close it without taking the time to manually save it, then if I open the same file on my computer, this new version will supplant the others, and I will lose all job done on the iPad. This is not very cool.

                                        • Custom templates (Word, PowerPoint, ...)

                                          We would like to see ability to have custom/corporate templates available on NEW tab within Office iOS Apps (Word, PowerPoint, ...).
                                          Currently only Microsoft predefined templates are available
