  1. All Features for iPad

    Office for the ipad should be able to easily do everything that the office for Windows can, and Microsoft should negotiate with Apple so that the VBA features are also possible. iPads have enough Power for all this.

      • Increase functionality in iPad app

        Many of us don't use a laptop, but only use iPad for our excel and other office 365 products. I want to be able to customize my ribbons, change my theme colors, develop macros. I want to do all the things that I used to be able to do when my macbook was working! I am paying just the same as everyone else and it's very frustrating to want to do something that I used to be able to do, and my hands are tied!!! Furthermore, I don't even know what I am not able to do on iPad excel…

        • disable auto-download missing fonts in cellular please

          This download makes a huge data cost and has little use, because you can always show the fonts' names in the "Start". So please make an option to DISABLE this feature while the iphone is in mobile network.

          • hold down command key for keyboard shortcuts

            I would like that, as in native iOS apps such as Safari, holding down the Command key for a few seconds displays a cheat sheet of keyboard shortcuts available in Excel.

            • Extend the Free Office App to include the new 10.5" iPad Pro

              Apple has just released the new iPad Pro 2, and the smaller version has increased in size from 9.7" to 10.5". This puts the smaller iPad Pro into the size that requires an Office 365 subscription. Since it is still the "smaller" version of the Pro, it would be nice it it was still eligible for the free versions.

                    Hello,
                    The excel application does not open the books on the ipad, it writes "old graphic SmartArt". Previously, these books were opened and edited on the same iPad. How to open them ?!
                    Thank you.

                          Autocomplete causes problems when using iOS with a barcode scanner. We need the ability to turn off Autocomplete like the desktop version.

                            • Need the functionality to have split screen with two excel workbooks open at the same time

                              Having the ability to have TWO Excel worksheets open would help for comparing data. That goes the same for all Office Apps. Currently the two apps must be two different apps. BIG weakness compared to an actual laptop

                              • Don't let editing a file on iOS change the window size when file opened in OS X

                                It is frustrating to edit a file on OS X (office 2016) then edit it later on an iPhone, and then when you get back to your desk and edit on OS X, the window has been resized to a tiny iPhone screen, forcing you to resize it on the desktop.

                                I know the iPhone and iPad can see a smaller area, but don't save the "window size" with the file when it is saved on iOS. The window size from the desktop should be persistent.
