  3. Offline editing of files on onedrive

    Want to be able to open and edit a file whilst offline and have the changes synced when I reconnect to the internet (like in google docs for ios).

    Currently I have to have the document initially opened from the cloud whilst there is an internet connection, and only then am I allowed to take the device offline and edit it.

  4. The possibility to use Zotero

    Please add the possibility to use Zotero.org plug in.

    Then they can develop a plug in, so that we can cross grade between Word for Mac with Zotero and the iPad and iPhone version.

  6. Word security.

    Excel file can be secured with password from "File" but Word one has to go to "Preferences" which makes it cumbersome, best for both work same way.
    Word and Excel files cannot be secured with passwords when uploaded to Apple 6 phone. Would be nice to have them secured separate from phone security.

  15. Add simultanious co-author like in Word 2016 and Online

    You should not have to edit offline, everything should be online, or there should be a way to work on word online in the app, NOT this synching.

  17. Better support for offline work and cloud services

    My company uses Box and I often use Word while commuting offline. Two things:
    - to open a file from Box, I have to take many steps: ...More to open iCloud document picker, locations, Box, file. The number of steps could be reduced, if I could select Box from the main menu, like Dropbox and OneDrive
    - if I use Word to edit a file stored in an offline folder in Box and save and close it, the file disappears from Word. It is somewhere in an invisible upload queue and only when I go back online, it will start…

  19. Make it easier to comment when in tablet read mode

    When I review a document in order to comment on it, I typically want to hold it as if I were reading something printed on paper. I typically sit on a chair or sofa, hold my iPad in one hand in portait, read and scroll and want to leave quick comments where needed. Currently, if I want to comment, the canvas moves to the left to show the comment column and the keyboard pops up. First of all, I would like to see pop-up comments over the page, so that the text is still visible. Second, if you are holding…
