  5. Since you updated word fr ipad in May 2017, I cannot save documents at all. Not the ones I create, nor ones sent to me by email. Help!

    You need to fix this as otherwise I shall not be using Word any more, which would be a pity. But if I cannot save documents it's useless to me.

  8. Cross-application authentication (esp. SharePoint SSO)

    Office on iOS is lacking cross-application authentication, especially for SharePoint SSO. For example, when opening a SharePoint Library in Safari, it should be able to open any Office document in the respective application, even if the SharePoint site uses some form-based authentication.

    This works very well under Windows but is lacking in Office on iOS. Given that on newer iOS version, it is possible to share cookies across applications, that should be a feature that is possible to be implemented.

    Currently words , powerpoint and excel allows saving and uploading in Icloud drive and many other as well . It should also allow uploading and saving of files in flash drive . The portability of files encourage more user using MS office on mobile and tablet.

  13. Word does not work with Apple mail. Do I need to use Outlook mail to make it work?

    I cannot load a word file using Apple mail, Does Word require the use of Outlook. So far loading Outlook has not worked but I have not removed Apple mail at this point.

  14. Using iPad Mini WITHOUT external Keyboard

    Dear sirs/ madams
    Please, for your handheld, outta-yer-pocket, instant on flatscreens (of all persuasions): 2 buttons for editing mode. Call them [§] and [=].

    They allow for forward deletion without the need for highlighting.

    [§] checks the value to the left of the cursor, returns in place and cancels to the right up to and including that same value case insensitive.

    [=] instead, checks TWO values to the left of the cursor, returns in place and cancels to the right up to and including those same TWO values case insensitive.

    In early word macro language they look like this:

  15. word suggestion bar for Asian languages on iPad Pro w/ Smart Keyboard

    After recent updates, inputting Asian languages that need to select words on an iPad Pro with Apple Smart Keyboard became very disappointing.
    The size of word suggestion bar became incredibly huge when the file is set to fit the screen. Imagine 4 times larger words comparing to the normal size before updates on your screen when you try to work outside. Please fix this mistake ASAP.
    I don't see this mistake on Excel or Powerpoint that updated at the same time.

  17. co-author on my iPad

    I'd like to be able to co-author on my iPad, so that I can edit in Word under different names, rather than only the main account holder's name. I can do this in Word on the computer, and it's so helpful.

  18. Outline view

    Add outline view functionality to word iOS. It's critical for writers of all kinds. It's especially important when working with smaller screens like iPad and iPhone. Thanks!

  19. Remove the 'Delete draft' option when saving a new document

    When hitting the back back button to save a new document, it would be preferable not to be offered the 'Delete draft' option. The consequences of pressing that option by accident is so much worse than having to manually delete an empty document once in a while...
