    Is there a limit to the depth of sub-folders that Word Mobile can see, or am I doing something wrong?

    File Explorer can see files several folders deep. Although Word Mobile opens the files when they're launched from File Explorer, Word Mobile can't see deeper than one subfolder.

    For example, File Explorer sees:
    My Documents
    - PDA Docs
    - Packing
    - UK weekend.doc

    But Word Mobile only sees files as deep as the ones in the PDA Docs folder. Kinda makes it hard to organise my 150+ files.

    Is that how it's designed, or am I doing something wrong?

    That leads me to another question; Can I delete empty folders such as Ringtones without causing problems down the line?

    Thanks.

    If one can call that omission of functionality a design, yes, that is how it is designed.

    Right, thanks. I thought I was doing something wrong, but no.

    It seems there are some odd limits in functionality.

    Yes, Windows and Office Mobile are really quite stupid that way. It's very frustrating to have to save files in the top level (or one level below) and then have to move them manually to where I want them.

    At least for all other programs, there's File Dialog Changer. Unfortunately, Office Mobile has it's own custom file dialog which is not affected by FDC.

    Microsoft really needs to fix this, frankly, lazy limitation.
