What you need to know
- Microsoft is testing an improved PDF view within the Office Mobile app on iOS.
- The app now hides elements such as the title bar while you scroll through a PDF.
- You can always bring back the title bar by tapping anywhere on the canvas.
Microsoft's Office Mobile app on iOS has an improved PDF viewing experience in testing with Insiders. The latest release of Office Mobile to Office Insiders automatically hides the title bar while you scroll through a PDF. You can bring the title bar back by tapping on the canvas of the PDF. The update brings the app to version 2.51 (21062802).
It's a small change, but it should make it a bit easier to read through documents. The title bar can get in the way of content of a PDF. Along with the title bar, other on-screen aspects of the app disappear when you scroll through a document. This should provide a clean interface without any interruptions.
Microsoft outlines the change in a recent Office Insider blog post:
If you'd like to test out Insider builds of the Office Mobile app, you can use our guide on how to download Microsoft Office preview for iOS and Android. Note that there are a limited number of people allowed to preview an app through Testflight. At the moment, it appears that registrations are still open for the Office Mobile app.
