  2. Please add navigation pane to iOS Pages!!

    Without a navigation page it's impossible to work on a long document, a research document, or a set of notes with different sections. In long documents it's not really possible to scroll up and down - especially on a mouse-less platform!

  3. 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.

  4. Make iPad Pro Word, PowerPoint and Excel usable without an Office 365 subscription

    Make iPad Pro Word, PowerPoint and Excel usable without an Office 365 subscription, just like on my old iPad Air 2. There is no reason for the app to become useless simply because I do not have an Office 365 sub. I know this was introduced in Nov 2015 ( https://blogs.office.com/en-us/2015/11/11/microsoft-office-apps-are-ready-for-the-ipad-pro/ ), but it has not affected me until now. It is completely unacceptable to make iPad Pro apps absolutely useless due to the fact that I do not have a subscription.

  9. 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.

  10. Add vertical ruler

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

  12. Support for iOS 11 Files App

    As it stands now if you use the Files app, you can't open and edit an Office file on the iPad. Instead the only option is to Send a Copy to Word, or Excel or PowerPoint. Then you have to save from Word and remember and find the path to save it back to it's original location. NOT efficient at all. I hope this is coming soon; this is preventing me from using Office on the iPad.

  13. Handwriting with Apple Pencil very buggy

    Please improve the handwriting and drawing with Apple Pencil in Word for iPad. Writing or drawings always get shifted left when handwriting or drawing. Really annoying

  17. 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.

  18. Protect Office iOS suite by password (Touch ID)

    The Office iOS apps allow a backdoor into a password protected Dropbox.
    Every other app using Dropbox needs a password or TouchID to access apart from the Office iOS suite which asks once and remembers!
    Easy fix: add option for password protect & TouchID to all office apps. Don't expose the user's enire Dropbox - what an obvious security error!

  20. Double underline

    It would be great to be able to double underline text in Word for iOS. A handy shortcut to make this possible would be a bonus too!
