    • 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.

            • Always open word documents in edit mode

              Don't make me have to tap the edit button just to make a small change, the other office apps open right into edit mode. Word should show the same behavior.

                • Add lasso tool

                  Word does now have some stylus tools, but one *crucial* one is missing: a lasso tool for selecting text for moving, resizing (and maybe removing, copying).

                    I would like to be able to create a table of content when using word on a chroomebook. When writting essays in school as a student, we are often asked to create a table of content but this is for the moment not possible on a chroomebook because the online version dosent support all functions. Chroombook is used by some students around the world and many children in schools in sweden. But with a chroomebook you dont have the same functions as a windows and mac computer. I think it could be nice if everyone even thoose with chroombook could…

                    • 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…

                          This word always comes up as a single word in the android world but when you type it in word it marks it as a wrong spelling just wondering how to make it not do that besides just skip it through spell check I guess?

                              • enable editing of .txt files in Word for Android (mobile Office)

                                I would like to be able to edit txt files in the Word app. I realize that not all features will be available for plain text files, but it would still be useful if I could edit the text. Alternatively, enable on-the-fly conversion to docx format, allowing all the usual features, and limit to saving in docx format, if it's not possible to implement txt editing.

                                  • make it so it will consistently allow you to work offline. Otherwise, I'm going to permanently abandon MS Word once and for all.

                                    Stop making things unpleasant for users and allow users to work offline with Word on an android device.

                                    • VIEW Margin Width

                                      It would be great to be able to set VIEW to Margin Width rather than Page Width. The white space beyond the margins is wasted precious real estate, especially on small devices like phones and small tablets. Yes, you can stretch the text, but scrolling becomes awkward, and the VIEW defaults back to page width as soon as you do any editing. It would also be useful to have more control over the text window and the space dedicated to showing the touch keyboard while editing. I cannot see tiny rendered text if my Samsung Note is in portrait mode,…
