On April 25th, 2018, Microsoft released Office for Windows Desktop version 1804 (Build 9226.xxxx).  Our Office International team translated this update into 44 languages. Here are some of the new features that are included in this release:


In PowerPoint convert your ink to text or shapes: Take scribbled notes and drawings, and convert them into readable text and crisp shapes to create a polished presentation. Developers now have Object model support for 3D models.Office365 v1.png




In Outlook you can now…

  • Listen to your emails: Outlook can read your email aloud, highlighting text as it's read
  • Mark deleted items as read: You can now set any message that you delete as read. Opt in by going to File > Options > Mail > Other.
  • Never miss a reminder: Set reminders to pop up over windows you're working in. Otherwise, Outlook will blink in the taskbar to get your attention.
  • Encrypt option: Office 365 Message Encryption users can encrypt a message and send it to anyone, inside or outside their organization. Encrypt option appears under Options > Permissions when creating a message 

In Project* you now have…

    • Task board filtering: Streamline your task boards by filtering on key resources or summary tasks.
    • Sprint navigation: Switch from one sprint view to another, and quickly move tasks between sprints.
    • The ability to set % complete from a task board: Choose a percent complete for each column, and then update task completion with drag-and-drop. Not sure what this is then take a look at this video…

Finally, in Word, find and fix relevant proofing issues in your language. The Editor pane now displays an overview of proofing issues found in your document, so the focus is on fixing the ones that are most relevant to you.

Hi @Thomas Maier yes, this expected as the new Editor is currently only available in Word (for Office 365 subscribers). If this changes we will let people know in one of our blogs. Cheers! Staff
