  4. Improvements for equations

    Recently the feature for automatically formatting equations was added, which is great. But it still needs more improvements, like 'pi' and 'theta' should be converted to the symbols when written in an equation.
    Also, the options to add sub and superscripts in general should also be added.

  6. 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.

  7. Allow Line breaks

    Word on a PC (which many/most users have been brought up on and are therefore used to) gives different results for using

    Enter key and the Shift key + Enter key

    I know that On Android, I can set line spacing, and I know that I can set Para spacing. It just seems a waste to have a command which is probably commonly used on PC not being available on Android.

    So a simple task on the PC becomes more awkward on the tablet. The keyboard shortcut is not being used for anything else so why not make it available…

  8. Enable choosing default font in Word (Office) for Android

    How come it's not possible to enable a default font in Word for the Android platform, when competing companies can?
    Really, how hard can it be, programming-wise ... ?

  9. Allow drop down menus in Word documents to work in Android version.

    We like to email word docs to employees to fill out and return. We include drop down boxes which work fine on PC but not on Android. Most our employees are field based with limited access to Laptops, so use Android devices.

  10. Usar todas as funções do app no modo offline!

    Poderia deixar o app como era antes, ou seja, deixar usar as fontes e o corretor do app no modo offline. Porque não é todo lugar que posso me manter conectado, e, também dessa forma pouparia muito a bateria e a funcionalidade do celular.

  13. Android Office365 to PDF

    While Office 365 desktop version has seemless saving options, am not sure why the mobile version should be left out, when there are already other similar office products that have multiple saving options. I would like to see the same level of functions on Android apps of Office365.

  16. Recent files list

    Needs an option to switch off the recent files list. I have encrypted doc files on my phone which require a password to open them. But once opened they can be accessed directly from the Recent Files list. There should at least be an option to switch off this obvious security flaw.

  20. Bring back Mobile (Reflow) View

    New ribbon UI for Android no longer offers Mobile View, so text does not rewrap for screen width during editing. Very very difficult to use Word on phone without it. Constant side to side scrolling. Horrible setback for work productivity...I used to write for hours on phone and now can't stand it for more than five minutes. Using Samsung Note 5 and 8.
