    I think there is some offline storage but it's pretty limited.

    I use OneNote on WP7.8 and I'm pretty sure that has an offline version stored locally (for one thing it is possible to create sync conflicts which would only happen if another copy is stored somewhere, and my phone is the only place it could be). I don't know if that extends to the other 'Office' file types within WP.
    I allready ask at Microsoft - and no ther ist not.
    It rumors that it is coming with WP 8.1.

    Yeah, there's supposed to be added features for OneDrive (SkyDrive) in the 8.1.1 update, but no confirmed details yet.

    Another problem I have with 8.1 is what they did to SkyDrive. I use to be able to use it in the Desktop with Explorer on my local account and that does not seem to work anymore. Seems like they'll be taking more and more away from local account usage.

    Yeah, for a local account, you would need to sign in online at SkyDrive.com instead.
