Word version 16.0.11530.20000

One Drive version 5.29.1

 

If I use Word on my phone, Google Pixel2 XL, then reopen it later, it doesn't ask if I want to pick up where I left off. If I use word on my PC, Word on my phone won't know/remember where I left off.

 

This is an annoying issue.

 

Is this an issue with an app or not? Any suggestions on how I can fix this?

The keep track feature once again works on my Nvidia Shield tablets. However, it still does not function on my Google Pixel 2 XL phone. I've uninstalled the Word and One Drive apps, then rebooted the phone, and reinstalled the apps. It still doesn't work. Is there anything I can do?

 

Also, in the Word app, under settings, there is an option to Reset Office. What does this do? Will it wipe my documents? Is it possible this might fix the where did I leave off issue?

 

One more question, in Word for Android, how do I insert an em dash?

 

 

Thanks,
