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.

I would like to open documents in the actual Word application and not on the web. How do I change the settings or uninstall the webapps version?
@Raghu - The Office Web Apps cannot be uninstalled from SkyDrive or Hotmail. In both Hotmail and SkyDrive, though, you can choose to download the file instead of opening it in the Office Web Apps.
I'm lovin this!
The only thing we need is the text effects, animation, and transitions. Also, we need the ablilty to upload our videos and pictures. Of course, you are probably already working on these things...
Web apps changes everything for the better. The ability to protect cells in the excel browser would be a big step towards creating online applications with Excel. VBA or some sort of macro functionality of course would also be a giant leap.
You are better and better. Congratulation!
This seems unique and interesting, however for me, it is going to take time to understand.
Hi, great work on the web apps. I just tried the OneNote web app and it's a nice start. I'd like to be able to view all content from my pages as I'm getting messages that say certain parts can't be displayed but no explanation as to what or why. I expect it to just work the same as viewing on the desktop.
I'd also like to see printing enabled for OneNote. Specifically, not sure how often I'd print to paper but I'd love to be able to download a PDF of a page so I can e-mail it to someone easily (without having to share my notebook, etc).
I'm sorry! I got distracted my my PTR (940c)stop printing!!! & THIS distracts me AND the maintenance guy won't come! (I guess I don't tip well!)
I can no longer download Excel and Word documents that are sent to my Hotmail address. Actually, I can download them, but when I try to save them they get converted and stored as a .png file that I cannot open. What's the deal? VThis has created a lot of headache and lost time for me and those I'm trying to forward my srpeadsheets to. Need solution now.
Our first attempt to download a PowerPoint file we got error messages. It loaded anyhow, but took a long time. I looked at the blogs while I was waiting.
I Love Microsoft !!!!!!
Why doesn't it have custom animation?, I need it, and It needs wordart
I think they should just put all the features of Microsoft Office on the web app version of Microsoft Office
@SB - Sounds to me like you are right clicking on the image of the document's icon and selecting "Save Picture As". A PNG ("Portable Network Graphics") file is just that - a picture - not a document. What you need to do is click on the word "Download" below the file's name. This will allow you to download the file to your computer and open it in Microsoft Office on your local machine.
Great!!! is all I can say. AS a tool it is incomparable. Good job guys. congratulations!!!
