Navigating OfficeSuite

As an interface that relies heavily on touch input, the navigation instructions provided in this section are invaluable to getting the most out of OfficeSuite.

OfficeSuite features integration with Spotlight Search, letting you search through documents directly from your iOS homescreen. Also from the homescreen, 3D Touch (on supported devices) provides contextual shortcuts from the OfficeSuite icon, such as creating new documents.

OfficeSuite's modules take after office software applications on desktop PC's in their interface and presentation, consisting of multiple tabs which house different options depending on the document you've opened. Many options are repeated in multiple tabs, to keep the need to switch between tabs to a minimum.

Highlighting text is done by double-tapping on the text field, and then dragging the bounding boxes to select the text you wish to manipulate. Contextual menus will appear for many items once they have been selected, with different options depending on the type of document.


The Document Editor supports cursor magnification. In Editor Mode, simply hold down over a text field, and a magnifying glass will appear showing your exact cursor location.


Moving elements such as image files in documents and text boxes in presentations is done by a tap-and-hold on the element for a count, then dragging it to the desired location.

Resizing elements such as image files is done by dragging the anchor points along the edges.

 

You can also Rotate elements using the rotate anchor.

 

Multipage View support allows you to view more than one page simultaneously and make edits at any zoom level. Pinch gestures are supported throughout all modules to change the zoom level.

 

Tapping on the name of the tab you are currently in will hide the menu from view, giving you a better look at the contents of your document.

OfficeSuite supports iOSs integrated VoiceOver and Speak Screen features, which are accessed through General->Accessibility and General->Accessibility->Speech sections in your iOS Settings menu. When enabled, VoiceOver will read out the individual onscreen menu and file elements that you tap on, while Speak Screen will read the content displayed on screen with a two-finger downward swipe.

OfficeSuite for iOS also supports keyboard shortcuts for attached hardware keyboards:
