Recently, Microsoft refreshed its Office suite of applications for iOS, bringing Word, PowerPoint and Excel all up to version 2.12. Despite the fact that Microsoft didn’t launch nitty gritty refresh takes note of, a report by Ryan Christoffel at MacStories uncovered that Twitter client Teddy Svoronos found a choice that enables clients to open their documents from their local Files application straightforwardly into their preferred Office application.

As indicated by Christoffel, this element replaces the past “Copy to” highlight, streamlining the process of opening a report in any of Microsoft’s Office applications.

Christoffel additionally went ahead to do some testing of his own, and discovered that the “Open in” encounter works somewhat better for .docx records than with different kinds of documents:

After seeing Teddy’s tweet, I completed a touch of playing around in the Files application and found that, while Excel and PowerPoint records got to in Files will stack Quick Look reviews and require tapping ‘Open in’ from the offer sheet, the experience is far and away superior with docx documents.
