Thanks for your request and votes. We are working on this feature for Word on iPadOS.

I understand that a) the devs are working on this, b) it’s incredibly hard, and c) they’ll release it when it’s stable.
I also get that it’s all but impossible to predict when a feature this complex will be ready for official release. But surely the dev team has a target date.
I and many, many others would appreciate knowing what that target date is.
Yes, I realize it’s not in Microsoft’s interest to promise delivery and then miss the date. But I’m not asking for a promise. I’m thinking in terms of a time range such as “by mid-2020.”
Being in the dark is incredibly frustrating. I’ve read so many threads peppered with comments from users contemplating bailing on Office for iPad and moving on to other solutions.
Can’t the devs at the very least say, “We’re working on it and hope to have it ready soon”?
Saying absolutely nothing does the opposite of building trust and confidence in the product and company.
Thanks for listening to a little rant from a dedicated user who a) sorely needs this feature and b) wants very much to keep using Office for iPad.Gregg Sewell supported this idea ·
