How can I use Excel for iPad OS 13 with its new multiple spaces, multi tasking feature? That is show 2 sheets next to each other and open multiple instances of the app simultaneously. This works with Apple's spreadsheet Numbers, Word-processor Pages and other apps. I can't get it to work with Excel or Word. Is Microsoft supporting this standard feature of the OS or am I missing something to get it to work?

Hi @s_made 

 

Although the multiple spaces functionality is available through iPadOS now, developers have to update their apps and enable support for multiple spaces themselves.

 

Microsoft are more than likely to do this soon, given Office applications were actually shown using multiple spaces during the iPadOS release keynote, but I haven’t noticed any Microsoft updates officially announcing support yet.

 

Very much looking forward to this feature too! Will be a massive improvement.

 

Hope this helps

Hi RVGMiller,

 

Thanks for the update. It is re-assuring they presented Office using multiple spaces with a single app.

 

With iPadOS now released, excited to see Microsoft support this standard feature with their Office Suite, very soon.
