  2. Gray Bars on iPad pro after typing a few sentences

    When I type in word, after a few lines are written, horizontal gray bars emerge. Is this a bug or is this how word actually works on iPad?

  3. Reduce lag when drawing with Apple Pencil

    I have a new iPad Pro running the latest iOS and edition of Office. I bought it specifically for the ability to draw on a word document, something I need to do for work. Everything has worked smoothly so far when using few drawn annotations but now, using more several written notes per page in documents of 40-50 pages, the application has crawled to a uselessly slow and laggy speed. I write and nothing happens for several seconds, the screen hangs and scrolling becomes impossible, then the application decides to save, mid-task, etc. It makes the programme virtually useless. Any…

  5. I need a word function in iPad

    The iPad word should be able to change the page background, this will be convenient for me to read, and I need to lock the keypad and avoid touching by mistake, you can imagine you reading when suddenly point out the feel of the keyboard?, that's too bad!

  6. Hitting undo shouldn't scroll back to top of page

    Everytime I hit the undo button on my iPad, the document scrolls back up to the first page. Very annoying especially when I have some documents over 100 pages long. It's definitely a bug and not on my end as reinstalling the app hasn't helped and my iPhone has the same issue.

  7. Show continuous pages without top and bottom margins

    In the Word for Windows app you can double click on the top or bottom edge of the page to hide the top and bottom margins and show all pages as a continuous text. This would be very helpful to have in the iOS version.

  8. Edit document without saving

    I sometimes open a Word doc into the World app from an email, but it always open as read only. To edit, you first need to decide where to save it (locally or in the cloud). I often want to make edits and email back without saving locally. Or, I want to make edits, but do not want to bother saving it first.

  9. Critical Bug: Saving to a "mounted" OneDrive shared folder gives access to the whole OneDrive

    Someone shared a folder on OneDrive with me, with edit rights. I "mounted" that folder on my OneDrive (option to "Add to my OneDrive"[1]).

    If I try to create a new document, and save it to that shared folder in my OneDrive, and it works. But Word seems to add the whole account of the folder's owner. It's like if I add a second OneDrive account to my Word, and now I'm able to browse the whole OneDrive of that person (all of the folders). Didn't tried to open any file, but I can browse every single folder there as…

  12. Add Page Up/Page Down to hardware keyboard short cuts

    The combination are Cmd or Ctrl +up and Cmd or Ctrl +down, which moved the cursor to the top and bottom of the document, respectively. There is no shortcut to move page by page

  14. Fix Korean Input Error

    When I am typing in Korean, and start a new line, the first word does not combine the final consonant correctly. For example, if the word is 산, it will be displayed as 사ㄴ, not attaching the final consonant under the word. This seems to only happen when starting a new line.

    This bug renders Word useless for typing Korean. I was looking forward to the new updates in hopes that this issue would be addressed, but the problem persists.

    Word for iPad had this issue for a long time. I was hoping that the new update would fix this…

  16. Add support for documents on WebDAV server

    As discussed here (http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/office_mobile-word/word-for-ipad-supporting-webdav-server/7886bc2f-d7f8-4435-b70a-6f523b97eb19) Word for iPad does not support opening documents from a WebDAV server. It uses the MS-FSSHTTPB protocol to get files from a SharePoint server, but does not support WebDAV protocol.
    Please add support to open documents directly from a WebDAV server.
