Since Apple released iPad OS 13 on WWDC 2019 last year, Apple has added two or more windows to the iPad OS, the multi-window feature for the same app, but until now few apps have adapted it. Microsoft recently announced that the recently updated beta version of iPad OS office software, also known as Word Beta and PowerPoint Beta, will support the multi-window feature.
PowerPoint can display three windows at the same time. When two documents are opened at the same time, it is easy to compare and modify.
In a blog post, Microsoft describes three ways to access this feature:
1, touch from the app’s Nearest, Shared, and Open file list, hold down and drag the file to the edge of the iPad screen to open it side by side.
2. In Word or PowerPoint, swipe up from the bottom of the screen and open the dock. Then touch and hold the icon of the same app, drag it from the dock to the left or right side of the screen, and tap the document to open it.
3. In Word or PowerPoint, access the Recent, Shared, and Open views on the App Start screen, tap the “…” menu for Chinese piece slots on the list, and then tap Open in a new window.
However, the software is not ideal for the adaptation of the keyboard.
Microsoft has not yet announced when it will provide all users with the iPad multi-window feature, hoping to arrive earlier.
