  1. 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.

  2. Vertical ruler

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

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  7. Dropbox aeroplane mode accessing locally saved files

    IPad office apps allows access to Dropbox files but only if there is an internet connection. With Dropbox you can save files onto your iPad. It would be great to be able to work with these files in the Office Apps while in aeroplane or if there is no internet connection

  13. Option to edit and show table boundaries

    Table boundaries do not show up on documents when not inside Word. So what you see is not what you get. Please correct bug

  15. Problems displaying Word files

    The Word apps, downloaded from Apple and Android stores respectively, recognize a different file format and because of that, there are slips of sentences in the next pages, causing clutter, page augmentation, etc. It would be very useful if this discrepancy is resolved, so that there are no differences on the same file, whatever the device or operating system used.

  18. “TH Sarabun New” as an office compatible font in Office for iOS

    Office for iOS only has “TH Sarabun PSK” (the old version) now. It would be great if we can use the newest version “TH Sarabun New” on iOS.
