  2. Please add footnotes and thesaurus for iPad

    As a graduate student, I recently purchased the iPad Pro to replace my computer and use Microsoft word heavily for papers and research. These are two tools I use quite often and would like to see them in the iPad.

  12. Default font for all styles on new documents

    Let me change the default font for new documents on Word for iOS. I'd like all my styles to be Arial.

    At least let me add a word file as a template....

  13. Wireless Mouse support within IOS Office (as Citrix did with the X1 Mouse)

    Apples lacking native support for mice limits us with IOS Office.

    Please consider mouse support directly within IOS Office. Maybe a partnership with Citrix to add support for the X1 Mouse?

    (Link to show Citrix X1 Mouse) http://store.citrix.com/store/citrix/en_US/pd/ThemeID.28169600/productID.317779200)

  18. Remove the 'Delete draft' option when saving a new document

    When hitting the back back button to save a new document, it would be preferable not to be offered the 'Delete draft' option. The consequences of pressing that option by accident is so much worse than having to manually delete an empty document once in a while...

  19. Outline view

  20. Since you updated word fr ipad in May 2017, I cannot save documents at all. Not the ones I create, nor ones sent to me by email. Help!

    You need to fix this as otherwise I shall not be using Word any more, which would be a pity. But if I cannot save documents it's useless to me.
