How can we improve Word for Android? Vote for an existing idea or share a new one.

Always open word documents in edit mode

Don't make me have to tap the edit button just to make a small change, the other office apps open right into edit mode. Word should show the same behavior.

        Yes exactly!

        Well, research shows (Yup! making this up... =P) that 99% of people read and only 1% of them write. And that 1%, 99% of what they were doing is write!!!

        My point is, to those who read documents, it might be a convenience to have this function but for writer, that is a hassle 99% of the time.

        Got what I mean? Huh?
