  1. Chromebook optimization

    Please make Word for Android better optimized for Chromebooks. Add more features that will give Chromebook users a closer user experience to that of full fledged Word for PC, otherwise we, who love Word are left with no serious options besides Google Docs. Some developers have already started optimizing their apps to Chromebooks, so that many options that are not found on the Android phones or tablets are shown on a Chromebook. It is time Microsoft do it too and give us, Chromebook users a better tool.

  2. Add the Show/Hide formatting marks button in Office 365 Word for Android

    The function to show/hide formatting marks (e.g. line breaks, spaces, etc.) is not only useful, but essential for any writer of technical documents.
    This button is present on Word for Windows and on iOS / iPad OS, but I cannot understand why it is not available under Android.
    Please fix this mess soon!

  4. Update Word on a Chromebook to provide more features, specifically the full reference tab

    I have a chromebook and the current mobile version of word simply isn’t good enough. Please can it be updated to include the ability to manage bibliographies and cite sources as that is fundamental to my work. Although I love word, if it isn’t changed soon I’ll have to cancel my subscription

  5. Provide for a permanent document /page format

    It would be a huge time saver if there was a group of settings (a style template) to allow a permanent document format.Examples could include page size and format (portrait or landscape), margins, font and font size, etc. The settings in this regard in Outlook 365 (2016) come to mind as an example.

  6. Make word for android automatically detect external keyboards and suppress the default onscreen keyboard

    Every time I click in the work area in a word document Word for Andriod brings up the onscreen keyboard even though I'm using an external bluetooth keyboard. Also, the menu ribbon seems to be tied to the keyboard - if you want to perform any functionality, it seems that you have to have the keyboard appear along with the menu ribbon, you can't just get the menu ribbon on it's own (if I dismiss the keyboard, I also lose the menu ribbon!). I've fixed this by installing Null Keyboard, an app that adds a 0px high onscreen keyboard, but…

  9. Word should have a literature button. Where you can choose what catagory literature you can make on word. Giving predictability on litrature

    When you go to make a story the literatures button makes it easier for story writers to make a story. By giving predictable sentences as to what is written in word. Thus giving idea's to the story writer's.https://www.thumbzilla.com/video/ph593bf92524dd4/distroya-ii say if I wanted to write a story using gay literature using this url's video as an example. I can. Also by sharing more story's weather they be adult content or not to the right audience can we then share idea's with one another. Freely.

  11. multiple copy and past in word

    I noticed during the paste process in Microsoft word and the windows system to have the last thing copied but sometimes we want to paste a file or a penultimate sentence. Copy and paste according to time because when we copy another file it will be pasted according to the last copy.

    Therefore the solution that we want when the paste will be according to the last time and then before the last and then before before the last. A minute, an hour, a day or a week, month ,which is to be arranged by date.

    The second idea while…

  14. Bring back the 'welcome back' feature!

    I am a user of the word for larger documents and I REALLY want the feature, where I frequently look over very large documents.

    Let people add or remove the feature if they dont want it.

    I NEED it when I am editing books of 500+ pages!

  17. Let me edit offline

    It is extremely inconvenient when I'm in locations with no wi-fi (or bad cell-phone reception) and I still need to use the app...but can't because they don't allow me to edit unless I sign-in.
    I save my data locally on my SD card, so I don't need to sign-in for the cloud save to begin with, so isn't there any possible way to do something about this?

    I've basically been using other apps like Google docs because the Word for Android gets in my way with the online sign-in, but personally it would be a lot easier to use Word…

  18. Allow "tablet mode" on smaller devices

    With DisplayLink and other second screen/mirroring options, I would like to use Android Word in tablet mode on my smartphone. Many of the small screen accommodations don't make sense when you are using a large external display. To have a tablet mode preference/toggle/setting would be awesome.
