HI, hope all is well. I have an Alcatel Plus 2 in 1 with windows 10. I love the office suite, the only thing that is bothersome is that when I want to slide the screen up or down it doesn't, instead it selects the the text. Can you perhaps make it to slide up and down when you swipe it instead of selecting text?

Using Touch screen scroll requires touch finger focus onto a scroll bar (vertical or horizontal) to scroll, that avoids any text selection from the document canvas.

Seems usable as is with no need to change.

A Multi-touch two-finger touch pad swipe, or shift-click on scroll bars work with no issues.

OP replied via PM to set Works for Me.

"... Thanks for the reply.

Yes you can use the side bars, however it is not as user friendly as swiping the screen itself, and double tapping for text selection. It's rather a recommendation for making it more user friendly on a tablet rather than a bug. I preach my sermons from the tablet, and the way it currently works let me loose my place sometimes.

Just a suggestion...."
