  1. Word problem after update

    Hallo,
    The matter consers Microsoft Word application for android. I use Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 with android 6.0.1.
    After the last update of the application it is not possible to open from SD card any Word document directly from the device preinstalled file manager. It is necessary to open every document from the Word application.
    It is so inconvenient!
    Please do something with it.
    Best regards
    Viola

  2. Handwriting panel gives unknown character for return.

    Using the handwriting panel gives an unknown character in Word. This works every where else.
    fixing it would be great.

  3. Create an office editor.

    This program would almost look identical to word if not a feature found on word. Basically it would be an invisible page that allowed you to write over top of an original file almost as a layer. The idea being that the page will not change the original file but be looked at as reference for changes. This would be highly useful for teachers, editors and anyone looking to edit their own work without printing out the document.

  6. Add macros.

    Despite the power of the processor in my smart phone, Word won't even run simple macros, something I could do 25 years ago with a Tandy PC running two floppy drives.

  8. I would like that, in word for android, exist a navigation pane, a way to go easier to a certain page. Thanks.

    I also want word to be more accessible with talk back. When I delete a character, it simply says backspace.

  14. Redesign the file manager for the tablet

    File manager for the tablet is currently viewable in three different sections. In the right-hand section only partial file names are shown so that those files that all have the similar file names for the first few characters will appear to be the same files when in fact they are not. This makes it extremely difficult to pick the correct file. It would be advantageous to use a file manager that displays the entire file name of each file so the user had no doubt as to which file they were opening and where it was being opened from -…

  16. Auto correct drives me nuts sometimes

    It forcesme to spell suppose in the past tense and the grammer suggestions should actually give you a suggestion. I guess we haven't quite got thier yet Microsoft? I know you can do better than that.

  17. Display document with embedded fonts

    If a word document has embedded fonts, the display and editing on android should allow for that font to be used.
    It would be great if the embedded font can be installed automatically.

  20. Improve digital signatures

    Improving digital signatures, I believe that in the near future this will be a feature that is used much because the tendency is to stop using paper, so the use of alternative mechanisms such as digital signatures (certificates) or (biometrico as tablets wacom) will be one of the features that users will use daily.

    Currently the functionality of digital signatures work well, however as a user think it could be improved by including more information regarding errors during the process of signing, suggestions on how to fix some errors in the firms, make more beautiful generally provide more elements tools…
