  1. Allow users to use their own fonts

    I would like to be able to download additional fonts to Word for Android. For example, I am a student of Greek literature and would like to be able to download SPIonic fonts.

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. Needs a navigation option for Word

    On the original desktop version, there is an option to pull up a navigation pane; and the ability to jump to headers in different sections of a document. Great for reports, novels or collected archives of dated work.

    The Android version is incredibly limited in this sense; since you don't have any choice but to scroll through all the pages (what could be thousands). A 'jump to the end' option would be a great start. Though a jump to header or a navigation menu would be the best answer. And a grab bar for scrolling would also be useful.

  7. Specify paragraph and character style

    As part of managing more complex documents, styles are essential to keep layout consistent and to ease management of the document. Tablet office does respect styles, including using the specified "next paragraph style", but it does not actually allow specifying what style to use for a paragraph or a text selection (it doesn't expose the styles in the GUI).

    It would be very worthwhile to be able to select (already existing) styles for text selections and paragraphs. While modifying and/or creating styles would be a desirable feature, the use of android word as a companion/quick edit option makes the selection…

  9. Multi-Window for MS Word

    I thin kit would be useful if MS Word could support split-screen with A) a second word document (so that you can have two word documents up side-by-side) and, B) any another application (e.g. PDF viewer, or browser, or file manager, etc.)

  11. Can we please have a sort function for university users

    University staff and students need a sort function for academic references, as per the desktop version. Without a sort function the usability for professionals is diminished.

  13. Need Go To function in Word for Android

    I am using Office 365 Personal on my desktop and Android devices. The purpose for using 365 is so I can work on my office documents while on the move, OK so far.

  14. Fillable Word Document on Tablet

    We have Word Documents that are fillable and created by others, so some things are locked. In Word on my computer I can fill in sections that are not locked. They are forms we need in the field. Using Word on a Tablet I can not do that, BUT USING A GENERIC DOCUMENT EDITOR THAT COMES WITH THE TABLET I CAN...seems you need to correct this in Word so that works if they can.

  16. I'd like to achieve the same APA formatting as with the desktop application of Word within the Word for Android app.

    Within the desktop app, you'd select the "Reference" menu tab, input source information via the "manage sources" option, and then utilize the "insert citation" option for easy incorporation of source data into the document. Ideally, the same tab, same sources compilation abilities, and same insertion method would be present in the mobile app.

  18. Margin customizing and tables improvement

    With my current experience with word for android i've been much working with tables. In my opinion it's essential to be able to merge or split cells. A simple ruler could solve the problem of margin customization. It would be also nicely seen (but i'm not stubborn about that) if we'd be provided with hyphenation.
