    Dear MS Word team, so now that Apple has fixed the problem for you with iPadOS 13 (with multiple windows of the same app side-by-side; for those missed it: https://www.apple.com/ipados/ipados-preview/), please make it sure it is really good.
    1) edit same document in two windows side-by-side in different places
    2) implement compare and combine two documents function

    Dear Microsoft, is there any update on this?

    Dear Word Product Team: Please also consider opening two views of the same document.

    Anonymous commented  · 

    Agreed, we should also be have the option to show two views of the same document side by side.

    Now that it seems that iOS 10 is not adding a native ability to open an app twice side by side (such as Word), it is up to MS to implement it at the app level. Apple shows how this can be implemented elegantly with Safari for iOS 10, which shows two browser tabs open side by side.

    I understand that for apps that can modify files (such as Office files), an added complication is that a user could open two versions of the same file twice and there would be access or syncing conflicts. In this case, Word could either prevent users from doing this, or use this as an opportunity to show different parts of the same document side by side.

    As iOS 9 split screen does not allow users to show the same app side-by-side, the Word app could implement this and allow users to open two documents side-by-side, or different parts of the same document

    The latest version (2.9) includes a mobile reading version for iPad, so that the text reflows depending on the size of the window

    I fully support this idea. In particular, in the Slide Over mode (iOS 9) the Word app is displayed as an elongated iPhone app, and text is barely readable. It needs to have the same Read Mode as you can find on the iPhone version.

    One idea would be to add a new zoom button to the View tab. if there are comments, the Page Width button zooms out to show both the page and comment pane. A new button could zoom to show just the page, ideally zooming in to fully use the screen and exclude the margins. Moreover, the view should also ignore any accidentally minor sideways scrolling, so that the view remains centered on the page. Only a deliberate scroll to the left would reveal the comments pane.

    I support this idea. As soon as one comment is entered, the Word canvas expands to the right with a comment column, and the view shrinks automatically to show the page and comments. This makes the text difficult to read on an iPad Mini in portrait. One can of course zoom back to 100% and move the page back into the view, but these are additional steps. Also ideally comments would float over the page.
