  1. Include the form features on Word for iPad.

    It would be awesome if forms created in word with fields for text can work on iPad.

  2. Restricted Document Editing

    When opening a restricted document with specific editable areas, Ipad Pro will not allow me select and edit correctly. Please make this feature, along with “select which area I can edit next” available.

  3. Full support for inserting and editing fields such as ToC, dates, and calculated formulae in tables

    To fully move to tablet from laptop the office functionality needs to include more advanced features found in desktop versions that allow more feature rich documents.

  4. "Mobile view" function for iPad

    Hello. I'vebeen using Microsoft Word for iPad for several years and I'm very pleased with it. More than a month ago, an update came. It added the "mobile view" feature. It VERY MUCH easier to work with documents in Split View mode. This function has become simply indispensable for me and all users of the program. But just a few days ago I got a new update for the iPad. In this update this function was removed. I would like you to return the "mobile view" on iPad, because this feature greatly helps with the work and increases the productivity…

  5. MS office 365 should work on iPad exactly as office 2007 on a standard non Apple Laptop. Why change a winning fromula. This is crazy

    let MS office 365 operate like previous good versions of office (MS 7) . 365 doesn’t support some basic functions on words and excel - SAVING , SAVING AS etc. This is crazy. The FILE is so so confusing -

  6. Make it easier to prevent documents being deleted accidentally

    When someone clicks on 'delete draft', it should ask 'are you sure you want to delete', like it would on PC, so that if they don't want to delete, they can stop it from being deleted. I recently lost part of a project I had been working on because I accidentally deleted a near 2000 word draft I had worked on for over an hour, all because I accidentally pressed 'delete draft' instead of 'save document'. It incredibly frustrated me, and it took me another hour to rewrite.

  7. Insufficient memory when loading a custom font

    I want to use a custom OTF-font on my iPad/iPhone. It is installed correctly in iOS and does work with other apps.

    In Word for iOS it says "There is insufficient memory or disk space. Word cannot display the requested font." Although half of the the disk space on my iPad/iPhone is empty.

  9. How about you develop your app so I can actually save a word document to pdf!!!

    Just spent days trying to do this spent hours on the thing, tech support could only suggest deleting and reinstalling the app, why have the export to pdf button on your app, if it doesn’t actually do anything?!?!

    Microsoft can kiss goodbye to my subscription and I will never use another product of theirs again, useless!

  10. BUG - Line/ Arrow Connectors do not snap and stay connected to shapes

    When you drag a line or arrow connector between two shapes the snapping handles do not appear and no connection is made.

    This feature does work on PowerPoint for iPad so it appears to be a bug that needs fixing in Word for iPad

  13. Support Bookmarks

    Documents2Go on my Palm Zire (2 meg memory) supported bookmarks: creating, using, renaming, et al.

    Word for iPhone in Office 365 should support Bookmarks as well.

  14. Norwegian language (and maybe others) get small i turned to capitalized i.

    Every time I write a small i as a one letter word in Word, it automatically turns to capitalized i. This is only happens on iPad, and only in Word (not PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook etc.). On MacBook Air or PC there is no problem with this. I have uses some time with Microsoft's first line support trying to solve it, but finally he sent me to this site.

    The reason is beacuse the system believe I am trying to write the English word I; in Norwegian "i" means "in" and is a word we often use, but we need to…

  15. Highlight and organize

    I use word for iPad and as a student i really need to highlight using my hand and following the line... At the moment you can highlight, or selecting each word or using your hand but in that way the highlighting do not follow the line, is not straight!! Another problem is that i can’t organize my doc in folders!! Is really sad considering that word is a paid app!

  17. Orphans/Widows Formatting MUST GO

    There needs to be an option to prevent the formatting of widows/orphans on the iPad Pro app. This is becoming incredibly frustrating as a college student when I am typing a paper up on my iPad Pro and have to deal with large areas of white space at the bottom of the page because your program automatically formats it so the entire paragraph moves to the next page. This has cost me grade points. If anything, that format should be removed from the app version entirely, or at least give us the control of being able to uncheck it the…

  18. Introduce passcode for Word/Excel/PowerPoint iOS apps

    It would be great if Passcode Lock was introduced for the Word/Excel/PowerPoint iOS apps, like what has already been introduced for the OneDrive and Outlook iOS apps.

  19. Bug when saving copy of DOC

    Not an idea, but a bug report. And since there is no bug report page on uservoice.com yet...
    When saving a copy of a DOC file in OneDrive, the app puts the original file name in quotation marks and adds the word copy. If you then tap on Save, it complains about illegal characters. Guess which one it is! Yes, the quotation marks.

  20. Please, can you fix the “Kailasa” Font

    It is the only font for the Tibetan, and it is not possible to type both upper and lower letters together, which many words in Tibetan have. The previous font “Microsoft Himalaya” was perfect, but now it cannot be used anymore
