  1. 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…

  8. 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

  12. 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…

  14. 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.

  19. Round/adaptive icon

    It would be great if the app got support for round/adaptive launcher icons for Android 8.0 onwards so that the icon isn't displayed as a square in a white circle on devices such as the Google Pixel.
