  1. Referencing (Citation)

    Hello, would love the feature "referencing" to be introduced to Word for Android much like you see on the desktop version of Word.

    Thankyou

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • Make Word for Android compatible with Samsung's multi-window

                  Love using word with my android devices (Samsung Galaxy Note 2014 Edition Table and Samsung Galaxy Note cell phone.
                  Would love to get the full use of my android devices, Word for Android does not appear to be compatible with the Samsung's multi-window feature.
                  Please make the Word for Android app to be able to function with Samsung multi-window features.

                    • 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.)

                      • 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.

                            • 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.

                                • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                        • Please add standard fonts to the app. The lack of Courier New and Times New Roman, which are required for some industries is atrocious.

                                          This isn't a big ask and for a company hellbent on proving it's the production experts, this oversight is unforgivable.
