Ratings and Reviews
Why did you change the commenting function
The inline comments used to work really well, and was the same as the desktop version - as in comments in text balloons that were easy to click in and out of. Now, it’s painfully slow as it opens a whole comments panel and opens all of the comments every time you want to make a new comment or edit an existing one. It also means you can’t change the format of the text in the comments e.g. with highlights or different coloured text. Please improve this, it’s ridiculously bad.
Also, the navigation around the document is poor. Especially if you have a big document. That option on the right hand side where you can expand the scrolling bar does not work well, it often takes a few attempts for the screen to register your thumb on it. And why can’t you go to a specific page? Surely this would be easy to do? Something like they have on the kindle might work better - with a scrolling thing across the screen. And I’d also like the option to view the section or chapter titles based on the styles functions of Heading 1, Heading 2 etc like you can on the desktop version - so you can navigate around the document easier.
I feel that the current Word that I use on my iPad in conjunction with one drive is excellent tool for any information that Is able to be referenced as often as you would require.
The grammar and spell check provided in word are very useful to use, as is editing. Saving files is set to automatic and can be selected to off which allows you to use and amend files and give it another title. So no need to worry about losing files especially with use of one drive.
Very useful on the move to update or create new files, has the time and date in the top left hand corner of view that is helpful.
I am sure that some other users would use graphics and photography to enhance the write up.
To sum up it may take longer on the iPad word compared with using a desktop keyboard, spelling and word suggestions are wonderful, on the move a very handy program for everyone.
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!
