Microsoft Announces Office Web Apps Update With New Features

Office Web Apps Comments

Microsoft Office team today announced a new update for Office Web Apps. This new update brings in 4 new features for Office Web Apps.

Here are the new features,

Copy and paste pictures from the web

Find a picture on the web that you want to use in your document? Now you never have to leave your browser. Just copy the picture and then paste it in the web app, using the keyboard (CTRL+V or ?+V).

Format with tools that follow your cursor

When you select a word or phrase in Word Web App or OneNote Web App, you immediately get a toolbar with formatting commands. That saves time, since you don’t have to go back up to the command ribbon to make a bulleted list or apply a style.

Change slide layout and more in PowerPoint Web App

Editing slides in PowerPoint Web App is getting more and more like working in the PowerPoint desktop program. Now you can change the layout of a slide just by right-clicking and picking a different layout.

View comments and do more with touch in Excel Web App

Excel Web App now opens workbooks that contain comments. You might notice that workbooks open faster too, because we worked to make the web app snappier. If you use Excel Web App on a touch device, now you can move and resize charts, and you can select multiple cells by tapping a cell and then dragging a selection handle.

You can straight away try out these features now as they are already live on the web. Try out this sample budget or sample presentation or  sample notebook or Word document.
