  1. Allow Word form fields to be edited on Android

    In Office 365 on an Android device, when I attempt to fill in a Word form field, I get an error message "This is not a valid selection". i have tried on different devices and the same thing happens.

      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?

            • 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,…

                • 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).

                          • Recent files should only link back to the original and not make a copy that can be opened even if the original has been wiped.

                            This is a security risk.

                            I have a word doc created on my PC that I transfer to my Smart Phone Galaxy Note 8. I encrypt this word doc because it is sensitive. I unencrypt it with another app. This makes a copy word doc. I open that with Word for Android.

                            When I'm done. I close Word for Android. I then wipe the unencrypted copy. I search my phone with another app to make sure no unencrypted copies exist.

                            I recently discovered that even after the above procedure, it is possible to open the file by using the RECENT…

                                        • Tool for managing signatures in mobile Word

                                          On OneNote I can draw and place the signature on PDF documents.
                                          Why not use the tool to perform the usual function in Word documents?

                                          Drawing the signature directly in Word is less convenient, it does not allow a quick management and resizing.

                                          Inserting it using a separate JPEG is also inconvenient because you have to take care to remove the background color in the image.
                                          The routine is already present in OneNote: why not include it among the options for insertion in Word.

                                          Thank you for your attention
