Change how you view documents in Quickoffice
You can customize the way files are displayed on your tablet or phone screen in Quickoffice using touchscreen gestures.
Zoom in and out with Quickoffice
Use the pinch zoom gesture to zoom in and out while viewing a document, spreadsheet, or presentation. Place two fingers on your device screen and move them together to zoom out, or move them apart to zoom in.
Drag the view area
If what you need to see in your document, spreadsheet, or presentation isn't currently visible, you can drag the document to view other areas. Place a finger anywhere on the document and move your finger in the opposite direction that you'd like to move the camera to drag the view area.
Additional view options for Android tablets and phones
View wrapped text or whole pages in documents on Android phones
As you zoom in or out of a document, you may notice that text automatically wraps to fit the size of your screen so that you do not need to drag the document horizonally to read text. Some formatting options are not available in reading view, so you may want to switch to page view.
Here's how to change the way your Android phone displays a document:
- Touch the Menu button on your phone
- Touch the page view icon
- Touch the reading view icon to switch back to reading view
Tip: While using page view, you can touch the view whole page icon to fit the page width to your screen.
View & edit multiple documents at the same time with Android tablets
You can have many documents open at once on Android tablets. Touch the multiple document icon to launch the Quickoffice multiple document viewer. From this screen, you can open, create, switch, and close documents, spreadsheets & presentations in Quickoffice. If you have many documents open at once, you can swipe this screen horizontally to see more open files.
Here's how you can work with multiple files at once in Quickoffice:
- Touch a document thumbnail to view that file
- Touch + to open or create a new file. This will launch the Quickoffice file manager screen.
- Touch x next to a document name to close the file. Quickoffice will ask you to save the file if you've made any changes.
