When we shipped Office Web Apps in June, we set out to make the Office experience more accessible so you could work from anywhere and share with anyone. We love to get input from the people who use Office Web Apps. That feedback helps us decide what features we offer next and when we make those features available. The latest updates to Office Web Apps add some much requested functionality to Word Web App, Excel Web App and PowerPoint Web App.
Here's what we added...
One of the top requests from customers we saw once Word Web App went live was the ability to print Word documents. Word Web App's viewer includes the ability to print but what we realized as we looked through all the customer feedback is that you wanted the print command in the Word Web App editor as well. Now, if you drop the File menu when you are editing a Word document you'll see this:
Not only will this make the print command easier to find but it will also reduce the number of steps required to print a document you are editing.
In Excel Web App there are two updates I want to highlight: inserting charts and the auto fill handle. Now in Excel Web App you can go to the Insert tab and insert charts. You will then be able to manipulate the data and elements of the chart in much the same way you can in Excel 2010. Here is a taste of the new UI for inserting charts:
You can also modify existing charts (or ones you just created!) just by clicking on them:
Here is a chart made in Excel Web App:
Also, you can now use the auto fill handle in Excel Web App. The auto fill handle is a time-saving feature in the Excel desktop client that allows you to use the contents of one cell to fill in adjacent cells. For example, In this worksheet there are two columns of numbers. I am summing the first row of numbers. If I want to sum the remaining numbers in the two columns, I can grab the small black square (the auto fill handle) and drag it down:
Here is the result when I drag the auto fill handle down the column:
With the addition of clip art to PowerPoint Web App you can now add high quality photos and illustrations to your presentation from Office.com’s image library. Choose from over 200,000 high-quality, royalty-free images, including selections from partners like iStockPhoto and Fotolia. Use the Insert tab to add clipart to slides with image placeholders:
You can use the Insert Clip Art dialog to search through thousands of images:
We are also happy to report that you can now select more themes when you create a new presentation in PowerPoint Web App. Once you name your presentation this dialog box comes up when the presentation opens:
We really appreciate all your feedback. Keep it coming! You can give us feedback directly from each of the web apps. There is a Give Feedback link in the File menu.
Stay tuned as we have even more to share in a few weeks.
Nick SimonsProgram Manager, Office Web Apps
Thank you!! This is going be great!!
Nice features update. Just remember to keep tuning it for speed!
What I can tell you is that, since you changed, watching a Power point show received by email has become the most excruciatingly slow and unpleasant thing. Any suggestion?????
@MP - To my knowledge, it is not currently possible to freeze panes in the Excel Web App.
@jhoover - Based on feedback I've been seeing elsewhere, it looks like that was a bug introduced in this update. I'm sure the Excel Web App team is working to resolve it.
@French Cat - What is the reference point for "since you changed", is it since before the Office Web Apps were launched, or since before this specific update to the Office Web Apps? I'm assuming the former. If that is the case, then you can still download the PowerPoint presentation as you've done in the past. You just need to click on the word download which is found below the file's name. Clicking almost anywhere else will open the file in the PowerPoint Web App, but clicking on the word download will not.
Good job, Nick. I'm torn between using this for quick collaboration and switching up to Sharepoint 2010 for the same. One thing is for certain, though, you guys are quickly surpassing G@@GL3's apps.
I am very impressed with the direction you're going for Office 2010 users, as well. Keep up the good work!
I want to use Navajo font on word.., thank
It is amazing! I really love it.
Excellent. STILL MORE FUNCTIONS WE WANT IN EXCEL.
I cant" not open or download ,I dont no what to do
THIS IS GREAT, I REALLY LIKE THIS
I really like Sky Drive. Is there any way you can upload a whole folder and keep its structure without having to make a folder on skydrive the upload all files individually
Please add a print option to Excel Web App. It is annoying to have to download it to the hard drive. I hate having multiple copies of the same workbook. Thanks. Other than that, I love it.
I was wondering when you will be able to access your OneNote Notebooks through you mobile device, and when you can print from OneNote Web App.
I had terrible experience using Excel web app about a month ago because there wasn't the auto fill handle. However, the function was added and I think it's cool.
