Changelog

Feature updates

Excel

  • Save shapes as pictures: In just a few clicks, save a shape, icon, or other object as a picture file so you can reuse it elsewhere.

Outlook

  • User can now save objects in Word/Excel/Outlook as a picture for Windows.: With the ability already seen in PowerPoint, users can now save objects in Word, Excel and Outlook as a picture. Objects include shapes, icons, pictures, and more! This can be accessed through the right-click menu.

Word

  • Easily select ink in Word by drawing a shape around it.: The Lasso tool on the Draw tab helps you select objects drawn with ink. Select individual strokes, or whole words. It’s handy when you have lots of ink and you only want to work with some of it.
