  1. More flexible file manager in Word

    When I search for a file on my OneDrive account inside Word for iOS, the file list always is sorted alphabetically. I need the option to sort by date modified or date created, search for files, and show the full file name Ineed flexible column width).

  2. 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.

  3. Allow editing document opened from email before saving (currently read-only)

    When I open a Word document from an email (and from another app through the share sheet), I would like to start editing the file immediately, before deciding whether and where to save it (I may even be offline, so I cannot save into the cloud, until I am back online). This is the case on the desktop.

    On my iPad, the file will always be read-only until I have decided where to save it. This distracts my workflow.

    I can try to save it on my iPad, but then I have to think again to upload it to the…

  4. problems with functionality since last update

    Since updating Word for IPad, there are some problems that are effecting functionality. In previous versions, when saving a copy of a document you would get the option to save changes in both or just the copy, this option is no longer there. There is also a problem with using functions like making fonts bold or clearing sections of text, at times they will not function at all and the only way to get them working again is to shut down the app and then restart. Using the external keyboard is also problematic, before the update I was able to…

  5. Word UI bug on iPad in Print Layout

    On iPad, when I am using Word to view a document in Print Layout view, a half-translucent image of four pages often mysteriously appears over the document I am using, rendering the document nearly unusable. Here's a screenshot from my iPad:

  7. Insert graphic

    Please add “insert graphic” along with pictures — the menu only lets me insert something from a camera, not all my graphic images.

  9. 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…

  10. Sort Function

    The sort function on iOS has a bug, so it sorts the number 7 after 66. It needs to distinguish between a number and letter. Further it sorts folders and files together.

    I have the latest 12in iPad Pro (Oct 2017) with the latest Apple iPad Pro keyboard attached. Latest iOS installed as of Oct 2017 and also latest MS Office suite on my iPad as of Oct 2017. There’s a bug in MS Word and here’s how to reproduce it:

  19. Make gridlines in tables show as dotted lines, but invisible when printed

    I use tables to lay out virtually every document I write. Although I can make a table in Word on my iPad, I need to finish the document off on my PC as I need to make the table gridlines invisible. Laying a document out with the help of tables is a technique I was taught at college so I'm sure many others do this too and would benefit from this upgrade.
