Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your question today.
How many apps are on the open in list?
Let me know how many are on the list when you scroll down, if there are 10 already you may need to uninstall some of those that show up on the list because they show up as a first come first on list. However, if there are less than 10 it may be that word isn't programmed to have .rtf as a default document type for the program.
How many are on the list currently?
Is it possible for you to uninstall the reinstall Word to bump back to the front of the list
Let me get my ipad really quick to verify.
Ok, you'll have to hold the word icon on the screen until it starts to shake. Then you can press the red X that comes up to delete.
Do not click the square icon, that means to stop, it is still downloading to install
check your screen, swipe left and right. Try opening a document see if its listed on the open with.
Has it finished downloading in the App store?
In the app store when you search for "word" in the upper right of the box that word appears in, do you see the word "Open" or "Get"?
If there is a blue circle around a blue square it means it is still downloading
Check the App store, see if its still downloading
It takes about 5 minutes depending on your connection speed
That means its downloading, you should see a thin blue circle around it? Then it starts getting thicker as it downloads
Awesome, let me know when it finishes. That blue square goes away and is replaced by the word "Open"
Thats a good sign.
Ah, I see. Never heard of St. Kitts before, had to look it up.
I am trying to get an rtf on my ipad right now. I have a feeling that its not a default document type for word.
It doesn't show up on mine either. It would appear the .rtf file format was not programmed into the Word application to use it as a default. This is why it will not show up, I assumed it would which is why I had you reinstall the program. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to change that listing.
Yes, sorry there wasn't any easy solution for you.
