Hi Ian,

 

The feature is still rolling out. You'll see it soon as a X button in the top left of the preview pane.

Hi
Its very simple you Just have to go to on the bottom right to account then you click the little gear and in there is the option to hide it

Ok so I’m confused. So despite the app update telling me the facility is available, it isn’t?

 

how will it “roll out”? Do I have to wait for another app update?

 

thanks

Sorted! The cross only seems to be visible in portrait mode, although the change persists when you switch back to landscape.

Glad to hear your sorted this out @Ian_A6!

 

Just a quick note on this is that this option is available for iOS's v.92.2 onwards and some of our other improvements include a better text file support since the previewing is improved and we also introduced text editing for more than 120 file extensions! 

 

Thanks for using our iOS mobile app and have a great day ahead!

Is there a list of those extensions anywhere?

Are you still seeing the X only in portrait orientation? Which tab are you on (Home, Files, etc), and is there a file open in the right pane? If so, what type of file is it?

yes. open any document by clicking on the left-hand side list and the X should be visible on the right-hand side. If not just rotate to portrait mode. The state seems to persist until you fully close the app - when you re-open the app you have to do this again, which hopefully they will give an option in future (although given how long it took to get this done, I wouldn't hold your breath)

Thanks for the response Ian - I'm specifically asking whether the X disappears for you in landscape mode. If so, any other details would be appreciated so that we can investigate, as we haven't been able to reproduce this issue.
