Microsoft launched Office Consumer Technical Preview late last year. It was an invitation only program with major updates every few month. Last month, they released January Technical Preview some new features. Last month, they allowed anyone to join Office Consumer Technical Preview. Now, the March Technical Preview Refresh build 16.0.3823.1005 got leaked on the web. This new build includes few new changes from the last month’s build. There is a new colorful theme which you can see in the image above.
- They’ve changed the default Office theme to align with the visuals of our modern apps. The default theme is now “Colorful” (previously, the default theme was “White”). You can always change your theme by going to File > Account > Office Theme.
- Now, with automatic image rotation, once you insert an image into the apps, it automatically rotates the picture to match the camera’s orientation. You can manually rotate the image to any position after insertion. Note that this only affects newly inserted images and does not apply to pictures in existing documents.
Apart from this, there are some new improvements such as Pan and zoom while loading large charts/SmartArt, Higher DPI support for 250% and 300%, Updated backstage user interface and more.
