    Help, section 3.6 re: tablet Devices: we don't get the "bottom ribbon", instead, double tapping brings out a floating ribbon with text editing. No scrapbook, apparently.

    Thanks. I'm not feeling the "superior" nature of this other app as it is running on Android and not webOS, which is my choice as a "superior" platform. But thanks anyway for trying.

    Pros : very fluid
    Loads the entire document in memory and then displays.
    Support for dropbox and googledocs
    Cons : keeps asking me to link google docs account every time, and fails to authenticate at first go.
    Large PDF files don't load
    Watermarks in PDFs appear in bold letters... Lol I can't read the main text.
    Sometimes even small files don't load with memory full error.
    Haven't been able to open ANY of the spreadsheets on google docs. They were all created in googledocs, not the uploaded ones or converted ones.
    When I zoom all the way down to thumbnail view and select a page the app freezes and I have to just just kill it and reopen.

    It's just showing the actual file system of your device. If you connect your device to your computer, in USB mode, you can make folders, rename folders, etc. Pretty sure you could also use Internalz.

    I have mixed feelings about this approach. Flexibility is good. However you can kind of get lost in irrelevant folders trying to find things. It would be a good compromise to be able to add "favorite" folders to the initial list.

    Installed Smart Office two days ago, worked fine. Yesterday at the office (no Wifi) all I got was a red screen. Got home (wifi available), Smart Office worked. After testing some more, basics were no wifi, no Smart Office. I posted a service request with Picsel (no response yet). Today, at the office (no wifi), Smart Office is working. I am confused.

    We're not hooked up to Text Assistant in this release. SmartOffice isn't a native application and it does take effort to plumb in all the things we'd like.

    But, we are listening and it's on our list of user feature requests.

    I replied to Ultramav who had the same feedback - We're not hooked up to Text Assistant in this release. SmartOffice isn't a native application and it does take effort to plumb in all the things we'd like.

For instance the word wrap problem can't really be a bug - I mean, they couldn't release it like that, so it must be something I'm doing - I hope....!
    We're looking into the word wrap issue you raised

    Great to hear and great to see you guys join this forum!!
    First of all thanks a lot for porting the app to webOS!!! I bought it right away when it was released.

    I assume that supporting webOS native copy/paste is similar as with text assist. I have actually no clue whether it is possible to hook (hybrid) PDK apps up with the native webOS clipboard is it?

    Comments subject to someone telling me I'm doing it wrong!
    Thanks for your feedback. We're investigating the word wrap issue you've raised. In terms of usability, no you can't pre select your font but on the other hand you can easily change the font after you've typed. We do offer a wider range of formatting options (more font styles, etc) than webos users may be used to.

    I respect your comment though and it's something our usability people can revisit.

    Re. copy/paste - access to the system clipboard requires more engineering effort on our part. It's on our list

    Thanks again for your feedback.

    Hi. Odd that the document isn't rendering in SmartOffice. Could you contact support-webos @ and attach the file if possible?

    The Google Docs linking doesn't work, and it crawls on large, graphic intensive PDF's, like textbooks (memory errors). Overall, the program is fast and quick at working with most documents, and with smaller, mostly text PDF's, it's much, much better than QO as a PDF viewer for text, but the broken Google Docs and crawling on some large textbooks is a bit of a bummer ATM.
    Thanks for letting us know about your Google docs issue. It's logged and we'll working on resolving.

    At the moment you are not able to set SmartOffice as the default viewer.

    Go to SmartOffice, open an existing document, bring up the copy paste options, paste is greyed out (nothing to paste).

    Copied a bit of that SmartOffice page and paste then lights up, allowing that second bit of copy to be pasted.

    Then opened QuickOffice, paste is available there, and when pasted the original bit of text from the email was pasted in.

    Conclusion - copy/paste in SmartOffice is private to Smartoffice and I think is private per document even (thus no copy paste between docs even within SmartOffice .

    And another thing - QuickOffice supports the Bluetooth keyboard arrow keys, SmartOffice does not, which is a pain""

    And another one
    "I bought it just for the PDF reader and here is what I've found so far:


    -Can actually zoom in quickly and the text looks good.
    -Doesn't flatten directories so you can actually organize documents


    -It seems the app doesn't bother to check for rotation lock
    -A 120-page document prompts an out of memory error, but the document displays anyway
    -Needs set viewing modes (1-page/2-page side by side) and a fit-to-screen button
    -Jump to page # feature would be nice
    -Weird interface"

    I replied to ozpeter here, which mentions copy paste:

    Re. User guide - SmartOffice UI adapts to tablet devices and smartphones - the images in the guide are in some instances are smartphone screen shots, which have a bottom ribbon. All of the buttons are in the top ribbon on the tablet version (scrapbook is smartphone only).

    re. BT keyboard - we're aware and working on it.

    re. PDF, thanks for your feedback. re. 2 pages side by side, you can do this with SmartOffice. The N-UP feature allows you to pinch zoom out and see multiple pages on screen.

    Thanks again for your feedback!

    The question of how we make this the default handler for various filetypes is a biggie for me?
    You can't set us as the default viewer at the moment
