Turn on reading view
You can use reading view to avoid accidentally moving objects or bringing up the keyboard as you view, scroll, and interact with text and objects. Reading view minimizes the controls to just what you need to view the content and perform certain tasks.
To turn on reading view, tap the reading view button in the top-right corner of the screen. If you don't see the reading view button, tap the More button , then tap Stop Editing.
While in reading view, tap the More button to do some other things with your document:
- Share the document
- Export the document
- Print the document
In reading view in Pages, you can turn the page navigator, two-page view, or the word count on or off. Depending on your device, tap the View Options button or the More button to access these features.
In reading view in Keynote, you can play the presentation.
Edit a document
To edit a document, tap the Edit button in the toolbar.
You can also start editing if you've selected text, an object, or a table while in reading view:
- Double-tap text, then tap Edit in the menu that appears.
- Touch and hold an object or a table, then tap Edit in the menu that appears.
Open and share documents in reading view
After you first update to Pages, Numbers, or Keynote 10.1 on your device, your existing documents open in reading view. Just tap the Edit button in the toolbar to start editing your document.
When someone shares a document with you, it opens in reading view the first time you open the document. When you share a document with others, it opens in reading view the first time they open the document.
When you reopen a document, it opens how you left it—in reading or editing view.
