    Anyone else finding a setting to disable the software keyboard on Tablets when using MS Word? This is in Office 2013, haven't tested any other ones yet. When I click on any area of the workspace the software keyboard pops up, even though I have a bluetooth keyboard connected, it's very annoying.

    I don't actually remember that happening at all for me, but I'll have to check it out when I get home tonight.

    Edit: So I just gave it a try with Word using the Preview version of Office 2013; if I tap on the screen, then the onscreen keyboard comes up, even when I have a Bluetooth keyboard connected. When I click with my mouse, the keyboard doesn't come up.
