  1. 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 ... ?

  2. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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

  16. 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.

  18. 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

  19. Add macros.

    Despite the power of the processor in my smart phone, Word won't even run simple macros, something I could do 25 years ago with a Tandy PC running two floppy drives.
