I thought I saw when I launched the latest build of Word for iOS that you could now get thumbnails for pages in the doc. Is that correct? If so, how do you do that? Thanks!


Hi Joseph!

I see that feature is mentioned in the what's new section of the software. It is not however mentioned in the Support article. I think the text might have been placed there in error and that feature did not release in version 2.5. I am following up with a colleague on the Word team for iOS. I will come back to you to confirm once I hear back. Staff


Hi Joseph,

So as I thought this was placed there in error. The reference has been removed from the software. The feature is being worked on. I will come back to this thread when the feature releases to let you know. Regards, Staff

Thanks very much. Looking forward to the news on availability of the feature.


I am a beta user for Excel for iOS, by the way. Would be happy to be for Word and PowerPoint as well.


Hi Joseph, I am sure the Word and PowerPoint teams would love to have you as an Office Insider. Have you looked at the Office Insider information here. Have you already tried to join the Office Insider program for iPhone and iPad by requesting an invitation here and just not heard back?
