  1. Bug when saving copy of DOC

    Not an idea, but a bug report. And since there is no bug report page on uservoice.com yet...
    When saving a copy of a DOC file in OneDrive, the app puts the original file name in quotation marks and adds the word copy. If you then tap on Save, it complains about illegal characters. Guess which one it is! Yes, the quotation marks.

  4. 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.

  7. Support Bookmarks

    Documents2Go on my Palm Zire (2 meg memory) supported bookmarks: creating, using, renaming, et al.

    Word for iPhone in Office 365 should support Bookmarks as well.

  8. Do not capitalize i.

    If iOS is not set to english (keyboard layout, but you can alter all language settings to non-english), i will not be capitalized in native / 3-party apps. Word apparently does not honour this setting.

  9. 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!

  12. Drag and Drop

    It would be nice to be able to Drag and Drop between Excel and Word. It would also be great to drag and Drop from the photos app.

  14. 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.

  15. Open multiple documents (simultaneously)

    I'd like the ability to open multiple documents at the same time, so I can switch easily between them. When switching from one document to another it closes the current one and it takes loading time to open the other doc (which isn't workable in a meeting).

    With something like tabs you can easily switch...

  16. Drop down menu access on mobile devices

    There should be a way to use drop down menus created on the desktop version of MS Word and use them on the mobile version of MS Word.

  18. Introduce passcode for Word/Excel/PowerPoint iOS apps

    It would be great if Passcode Lock was introduced for the Word/Excel/PowerPoint iOS apps, like what has already been introduced for the OneDrive and Outlook iOS apps.

  19. Automatic saving when file not one ONE DRIVE

    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.
    Furthermore, in these…
