  2. Keyboard shortcuts don't work Word for Android on Chromebook

    I'm using MS Word for Android on an Asus 302c Chromebook. Most of the things work very well (besides some features I'd love to see there :-) ), but one thing doesn't work at all - the keyboard shortcuts that work perfectly elsewhere. When I use the most common shortcuts (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, Ctrl+X etc...) nothing happens as I would expect it to happen, but a weird rectangle appears instead of the highlighted word.
    Please fix that bug and make Word better on Chromebooks!

  4. Ture Black (OLED Mode) in writing mode

    True Black (OLED Mode) when you're in writing mode in Word for Android. Would help save a lot of battery when writing alot of text.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. Add Times New Roman to the list of fonts offered.

    I write my essays for college on my phone through the word app. Most of my essays require my to type them in times new Roman 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 school work though the app.

  8. 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.

  9. Add Dark Theme / Night Mode

    It would be very nice and convenient if there was an option to select Word theme to dark for paper, menu and bottom options panel simultaneously. More precisely I don't mean color temperature changeability of display. Dark background feature is much more needed at night or in dark environment. It could save users from eyestrain and make user experience more comfortable.

  11. 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 ... ?

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. Adding Harvard Author Date referencing style in word 2016

    in Australia, they use Harvard author date referencing style. The word I am using doesn't have it and I find it very hard to reference my work using other online referencing apps. Hence I am just wondering if you could add the Harvard author date referencing style in the word, it would be really helpful for many many students in Australia

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
