Custom Default Template

Okay. So this needs to be addressed, as my iPad Pro is my computer that I use. I pay for 365, so there is no reason for Microsoft to make using Apple devices inconvenient. Why why why is it not possible to create your own templates or layouts? Every time I write a new paper, which is very frequent, I’m forced to adjust the settings to look as I want them. This is extremely frustrating, and there is now way to edit their default templates and layouts. I read on a forum that it was “by design” and the only purposeful design choice I can think of is so that they design it to be inconvenient. Next, why is it that sometimes words will always be marked as spelled incorrectly when they are not? This happens every once in in awhile and the only way to fix it is to start the paper over when it happens. Or just deal with there being dotted red lines all over the paper. Fix these things and it’ll be perfect.

Lost functionality since Apple Pencil Update

Okay, so the new pens are nice, and thanks for giving +Learn back. That was cool of you.

HOWEVER: Now it is crashing unpredictably and uncontrollably. I am editing a 153 page document and all I want to do is hunt your app team down and slay them right now. FIX THE CRASH ISSUE, PLEASE! I DO NOT LIKE BEING THIS ANGRY AT STRANGERS. THOSE STRANGERS ARE YOU, APP TEAM.

There are way too many bugs on the iPad Pro, whether I'm using my Logitech keyboard or not. All of these started with the update mentioned in the title, have not been fixed with subsequent updates, and occur whether you have the Pencil set to draw or not.

If I go to split screen, switch apps, pull up the control panel, pull down the notifications, swipe right for another app, or double tap home, I will lose ALL FUNCTIONALITY IN WORD except to 1.) type, 2.) press and hold to highlight a word and drag the dots to highlight more, and 3.) hit the arrow to save and go back out. If I want to format, copy/paste/cut, literally do anything, I have to double tap home, swipe up to close word, and reopen the app.

This is irritating because I use Word constantly. It's how I make a living. I've been using it for about 23-24 years now, I think. My dad taught me how to type on it and I grew up writing on it. After the d*ck slap to the face that was Windows 10, I think you guys need to be better people than the ones who put out these kind of low-quality work.

Missing templates & features

I have to use this for school, and I use the mobile version, which in a lot of ways I really like. But there are features missing that I have used before, so less control over what I’m doing which is a shame. (Like creating citations for the work that will then just insert and be in the format I’ve chosen, as I can use all the help I can get in that area. Also, footnotes aren’t easy either.) Also there are barely any templates, which is also upsetting because I need very specific things for my classes, and it would be extremely helpful for me if I had a much wider range of templates. I did find some on the Microsoft website, but they don’t work properly, so that’s a bust. Hoping these things will be addressed in an update.
