  1. UNDO reliability and behavior

    On iPad Pro there are two UNDO icons; one on the on-screen keypad and one on the Word menu.
    First: It is often that UNDO does nothing at all.
    Second: It is often the UNDO does not perform the undo on the current line being edited, but instead mysteriously jumps to the end of a line or paragraph where I last pasted some text... and begins to undue the characters from the end of the pasted texts. (Why would that even happen?)
    Please fix the reliability and behavior of UNDO

  4. Add vertical ruler

    Include option to include vertical ruler. It doesn’t make sense just to have horizontal ruler only!

  5. Fix app switching bug..

    Upon working on a Word or PowerPoint document on my IPad Pro, if I have to switch apps, Word & PowerPoint closes out your existing document and opens a recent document from the past. I have lost progress by not saving before I have to switch apps. Very Annoying!!!

  6. Handwriting with Apple Pencil very buggy

    Please improve the handwriting and drawing with Apple Pencil in Word for iPad. Writing or drawings always get shifted left when handwriting or drawing. Really annoying

  7. Double underline

    It would be great to be able to double underline text in Word for iOS. A handy shortcut to make this possible would be a bonus too!

  9. Create an Optional Tutorial In the Microsoft Word App on ios Platforms

    When you first download the app there is no tutorial on how to use the app since some of the processes are different on mobile this should get included to give the user a basic run down on how to use the functions of the mobile Word Application. Additionally, this would also be a good idea if you are brand new and just trying out Word for the first time.

  10. Create ability to set default language for spell check in Word app, regardless of region setting on iOS. Ex.

    I live in Germany so for ease of use my iOS region is set to Germany (this way I get local news and phone numbers are formatted properly) but when I use Word I most frequently use it in English. It would be helpful if I didn’t have to change the spell check feature over to English on every new document I create and could instead set a default language.

  11. Support for iOS 11 Files App

    As it stands now if you use the Files app, you can't open and edit an Office file on the iPad. Instead the only option is to Send a Copy to Word, or Excel or PowerPoint. Then you have to save from Word and remember and find the path to save it back to it's original location. NOT efficient at all. I hope this is coming soon; this is preventing me from using Office on the iPad.

  16. serious flaw in “search” causes application to freeze

    August 2018: the latest version of Word for iOS freezes on my iPad after a while when using the search feature. It is not possible to exit the search mode and you are not able to scroll anymore. The only exit seems to be a hard exit (i.e. kiling the application and restarting. This is very annoying and needs to be fixed urgently. I was able to replicate the flaw multiple times.

  18. Hide identifying information

    I am familiar with using Word on a laptop but have recently switched to using an iPad Pro as my main work device. I need to be able to provide anonymous comments in track changes, for example when reviewing academic papers. Why is this not an option in Word for iPad?

  19. Add a cover / title page

    It would be nice to have the possibility to add a cover / title page on Word for iOS just like the desktop version.
