  1. Hide identifying information

    I am familiar with using Word on a laptop but have recently switched to using an iPad Pro as my main work device. I need to be able to provide anonymous comments in track changes, for example when reviewing academic papers. Why is this not an option in Word for iPad?

  2. 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/msofficeword-msoimobile-msoversion_other/edits-lost-in-word-for-ipad-on-document-opened/d5cbaf6c-0500-4fea-9862-b37f8f4722cd

  5. EndNote Plugin

    Allow an EndNote PlugIn as in MacOS. Citations are very important for academic iPad Pro Users!

  8. Full support for inserting and editing fields such as ToC, dates, and calculated formulae in tables

    To fully move to tablet from laptop the office functionality needs to include more advanced features found in desktop versions that allow more feature rich documents.

  9. End note reference tab for iOS word app

    In the Word app on iOS you should be able to have a tab at the top so you can connect your EndNoteX8 account and add in references.

  10. 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.

  12. “TH Sarabun New” as an office compatible font in Office for iOS

    Office for iOS only has “TH Sarabun PSK” (the old version) now. It would be great if we can use the newest version “TH Sarabun New” on iOS.

  13. "Mobile view" function for iPad

    Hello. I'vebeen using Microsoft Word for iPad for several years and I'm very pleased with it. More than a month ago, an update came. It added the "mobile view" feature. It VERY MUCH easier to work with documents in Split View mode. This function has become simply indispensable for me and all users of the program. But just a few days ago I got a new update for the iPad. In this update this function was removed. I would like you to return the "mobile view" on iPad, because this feature greatly helps with the work and increases the productivity…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Restricted Document Editing

    When opening a restricted document with specific editable areas, Ipad Pro will not allow me select and edit correctly. Please make this feature, along with “select which area I can edit next” available.
