This is so useful!

I want to be an author so I’m trying to write more but my hands always hurt when I write irl so I get apps. This is the only writing app I have because it’s so good, and it has so many useful features! You can make your writing bigger, change the font and colour, make your writing bold, or slanted, or underlined, and it’s so easy to name your stories! You can save them really easily and I’ve never had a problem with getting back to them, but I would like an undo feature because of this; I had a really really long story, and I accidentally clicked select all when I was trying to get an alternative word for something.I didn’t know how to get it off of select all, so I clicked space and my WHOLE STORY DISAPPEARED. Luckily I could recover the last save, but I still had to rewrite quite a lot. If there is already an undo feature, please please please reply to this and tell me where it is. I would 9/10 recommend this, PLEASE make an undo button or direct me to it.
-someone who loves this app

Edit~ Hello again. Since I wrote this review, I have found an undo button, thanks to the Word tutorial. I am so thankful for that undo button, though by the time I found it I had already re-written what I’d lost. Now I would 10/10 recommend this app. It’s so useful for story writing and you can really easily access your previous stories.

Genuinely the best!

There is not a single thing wrong with this app. It genuinely has all the features that you could ever need when creating documents! You can change the colour of writing; adjust the font size; type in specific locations of a document due to the amazing text boxes; generating different types of shapes and pictures through your document; and so much more. This is literally the best app you will ever find to be able to write massive documents. And this is for anything-writing; heavy editing and lots of information that is important and needs to be immediately stored in a safe place; whatever you need. There is also Publisher as another app like Word however this takes the cake easily in my opinion. Good quality, beautiful, non glitchy, and NO spending money whatsoever. For just a phone app, this has so much capability and room for inspiration when it comes to how many different things that you can do within this one app. This is basically my only editing app because it is the best! I love it, and I can’t find a single problem with Microsoft Word because of how amazing this app actually is. Well done. Keep up the good work and you will keep flourishing.

It’s really time Word sorted itself out for iOS devices

I have used Office/Word for decades, but mostly at work with my employer paying for it. Now I am paying a LOT for Office 365 at home, but the functionality of Word is really glitchy on my iPad Pro. It really is well past time that MS sorted this out.
Current problems include: -Documents with pictures or tables are so slow to load that the keyboard lags behind my typing speed. - Headers/footers can’t be properly edited. - I’m unable to toggle sections (same as/different). - Print preview is unavailable or does not work. - Exports to PDF are different from the Word version. I cannot preview the *actual* appearance of Word docs when they are exported to pdf, making design difficult and time-consuming. - The available MS fonts are old fashioned and mess up my spacing and layout within poems. They do not match the cover, which was designed with Adobe. - My first choice Adobe font, Raleway, though imported to my device, is not available within Word. - My second choice iOS font, Avenir, is not preserved when exported to PDF. Other iOS fonts, though listed in the menu, do not export either. - Smart shapes are not available. - Random failure to save documents (“This document cannot be saved. Please try again later”!)
Come on MS, sort this out! I’m off to check out Note, which I have never used before, and if works better than Word, I may change the habit of a lifetime and cancel my Office365 subscription.
