I have a question for Microsoft, why office an Office Insider for Office 365 programs like Word if you aren't going to roll out the new features to all users of a particular build????  I read about a new Editor Overview Pane for Office Insiders with build 1802 (9020.2003) and I have that version but not that feature.  How can we test these things before our users get them, if we don't get them when released to Insiders?  News goes out about these features but you can't test because they don't show up on those who are Office Insiders.  What's the point of this release cycle if we don't get the features as they roll out?  I want to be on this release to test features in advance but don't always get in advance even though I'm an insider and check daily for updates.
