  1. Add regional Indian fonts.

    Government Offical works are all in hindi here. So it's next to worthless in 'on the go' terms just because of a single problem.

  2. Set a code when you want to use Word each time (5 numbers will do)

    HI, I have a question about the Word and Excel app for Android. I use OneDrive. When I install the Excel app I can see ALL my files on OneDrive. That's VERY tricky, because when someone else gets my phone, they are able to open all my files through the Word and Excel app. So I deleted your apps. Which is very sad, because the apps are wonderful. When you have to give a code each time you use an Office app, this problem will be solved !!!

  3. 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.

  5. Add Hindi (Kruti Dev) fonts to the list of fonts offered in Word App for Android Phone .

    I worked my office work on my phone through the word app. Most of my works require to type them in Hindi (Kruti Dev) which isn't possible on the app. I was wondering if it were possible to add the font to the other fonts, so I can continue my office work though the app.

  9. Print to one note or pdf

    it would be awesome if there was print to one note or pdf functionality not just here but also the iOS app and office online just like you can for the desktop application. It's really cumbersome trying to print to either especially when I'm away from my laptop and need to review or annotate documents on the go.

  10. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. MS Word Add-Ins on Tablet/Mobile device

    The majority of our Tablet/Mobile users are using android devices and we would like to develop a Task Pane App for our users. Because MS Word on Android doesn't support Task Pane Apps, we will no longer be able to develop said product for them. This will cause us to loose a lot of clients only because MS Word Android doesn't support Task Pane Apps.

  16. 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…

    Please incorporate the referencing function. I might not ever open my desktop if this function becomes available.

  18. Unable to delete word file on an android device, when its opened for just viewing nothing else.

    Let me explain what is going on.
    When you open a password protected Word or Excel file on Android Word or Excel,
    It opens the file and then dumps an unprotected version of that file deep into Android's file system.
    Later, when you delete the original on your phone, the file still shows up in your Android Word or Excel 'recents' list and you can just tap it and open it. It is quite disturbing. It has a long file path usually users>>data>>0 ...

    The only way to delete this copy is to go to Androids app screen, select Word…

  20. Allow addition of custom templates

    Just like in the desktop version, would be great to have the option to add custom templates. Particularly useful for company letterheads etc when you need to make a quick document on the go.

    Of course, it should support images in the header and footer.
