A good product that’s been spoilt
I’ve been using Word for files kept in OneDrive for some time now. With each release it has been made less user- friendly and less usable. In a previous release, files which used to open from One Drive straight into Word on the iPad and were up-dateable, changed to open in some sort of Word reader and I needed to send them to Word to update them, which was an un-necessary step and a hindrance. In the latest version files which I am used to being able to maintain and update now seem to be un-updateable. For some reason they have been marked as Read Only, when they are MY files and I want to update them... I’m not impressed with the direction this is all taking!
Unstable and buggy
I don’t tend to write reviews, but I’ve got so frustrated with trying to use Word on the iPad (Air 3) with the Apple Pencil. I suspect the programme wasn’t tested for documents over a handful of pages, as my thesis chapters (30-40 pages apiece) are incredibly laggy, and marking up documents using the Apple Pencil is akin to bashing your head on a brick wall. Support for the pencil keeps dropping out (although only in the Word app) and markups and highlights are jumping around all over the place. I’ve had to keep restarting the app every page or so, just to get basic functionality. Unfortunately, I don’t have the option to switch software at this stage. Microsoft, please also add the essential feature of document outline, so that we can navigate around longer documents, and a table of contents would be great. Finally, please consider adding referencing integration. At the moment, there is no way that this version of Word on an iPad is suitable for academic work.
Love word, have done since i first used it back in the 90’s, just as good as ever, and now for the but.....
Once upon a time you could set your default font with which ever one took your fancy, i like times new roman for my writing, then when they took that option out, you could click on a recently used font, ok, it worked. Now you are given a default font, Calibri, i think, which i don't like, but now i have to scroll through the list every time i want to write, its a pain. I have emailed them through the app about it and all they have done is change the icon style on the iPad, useless.
It really cant be that hard to add this option.
