Headers are no longer displayed in Word Online in Edit Mode
Headers are now hidden in a tab when viewing documents in Word Online in Edit mode. This functionality does not correspond with Word for desktop and is very confusing for end users looking to download documentation from our Intranet when granted Contribute access to the site. Headers should display by default when viewing a document regardless of your access level.
Please make the desktop and online versions the same with regard to headers and footers, it is a problem when important information is in the header and footer. The default should be to show headers and footers. Why spend the time to insert headers/footers if they are not going to show online? Thank you.
Why is this change being made? How could this be a change for the better. How can you view a document and not know what it will look like when finished if part of it is hidden? My vote is Do Not make this change.
