    • MS Word Add-Ins on Tablet/Mobile device

      The majority of our Tablet/Mobile users are using android devices and we would like to develop a Task Pane App for our users. Because MS Word on Android doesn't support Task Pane Apps, we will no longer be able to develop said product for them. This will cause us to loose a lot of clients only because MS Word Android doesn't support Task Pane Apps.

        • Insert date time option.

          There should be an option to insert the current date as a field, as per the PC version. It should also have the option to be static (remain as it was when first inserted), or an option so that it updates itself whenever the document is opened, e.g if you start writing a letter on 15th, but finish on 17th etc.

                      • Printing U2010 Hyphen Instead of U002D Hyphen Minus

                        The U2010 hyphen appears differently in Word 2016 compared to the U002D hyphen minus (as it should), but only when I turn on the "show formatting symbols" feature. When I print Word documents using the U2010 hyphen, however, the hyphens display on paper as the U002D hyphen minus. The same is true when I save a Word document as a .pdf. As I understand it, the two characters should display differently--the hyphen is the preferred typesetting character and is a touch longer, thinner, and raised horizontally, whereas the hyphen minus is an amalgamation of the hyphen and minus characters adopted…

                        • Screenwriting

                          I'm writing a television show. The offerings in regards to apps which help write screenplays is abiysmal on android.

                          I would like to use your app. If you can implement the items below, you would be the first.

                          Using Fountain, you can add screenwriting indents to your app easily, plus it's Markdown compatible!
                          www.Fountain.io

                          I'm writing my show in google docs at the moment, and I need a few things:

                          1. I have a glossary to explain my use of certain syntax within my script. Since they need to know the syntax before reading, I have to precede my screenplay…

                          • Auto-format screenplays

                            Can you add fountain support?

                            SYNTAX: www.fountain.io

                            Fountain is a language, compatible with "markdown", for auto-formatting the basic standards of a screenplay into basic text documents.

                            I would like to see auto coloring of script elements as well.

                            My name is JourneyJay, and I've developed a markdown and fountain compatible syntax for displaying concurrent elements within a screenplay.

                            Screenplays are typically written sequentially, so a syntax for concurrency is substantial. Please take a look here:

                            • Improvements for equations

                              Recently the feature for automatically formatting equations was added, which is great. But it still needs more improvements, like 'pi' and 'theta' should be converted to the symbols when written in an equation.
                              Also, the options to add sub and superscripts in general should also be added.
