Microsoft has given its mobile office apps for iPad and iPhone innovations. For me, the Office package is still one of the reasons that make the desktop obsolete for me – innovations are therefore always welcome, even if they are not that lavish and there is still a lot missing.
The new update of the PowerPoint app has the option of marking text in color. The marking function is possible, regardless of whether the text is within a text box or a table on the PowerPoint slide. Accordingly, it is now also possible to remove marked text passages – this was also not possible before if it was added on other devices. So far only for Office Insiders (version 2.63 possible), but it should soon be distributed to other users as well.
14 new functions have been added to the Excel app to change table entries. Below for texts: TEXT BEFORE, TEXT AFTER, TEXTSPLIT and for arrays: EXPAND, TAKE, DROP, VSTACK, HSTACK, CHOOSEROWS, CHOOSECOLS, TOROW, TOCOL, WRAPROWS and WRAPCOLS.
Probably the most exciting innovation comes from the Office mobile app. It now supports Apple’s Scribble mode. From now on you can also add handwritten text to documents, spreadsheets and presentations within Office Mobile. To do this, however, the corresponding mode in the “Apple Pencil” area must be activated in the options.
