Say for some reason we are not connected to the Internet, the first thing that we think is how are we going to get our work done? Will we be on time for the deadline? Among with many other questions. So, what do we do?

Then, even though we are not connected to the Internet, we use the same procedure to Open our Document, Workbook or Presentation, only that we open them from our OneDrive Personal Account. We then continue to work on our Document, Workbook or Presentation while we are Offline, and anything that we change or do will be uploaded to the server when we reconnect to a Network.

Insert SVG Files In Microsoft Office 365 Programs

A new File Format for Images has arrived for use in Microsoft Office applications among with all the other File Formats that were already available. This File Format is named Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG).

Insert SVG Files English

What is a Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) though: It is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation. The SVG specification is an open standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) since 1999. SVG images and their behaviors are defined in XML text files. This means that they can be searched, indexed, scripted, and compressed. As XML files, SVG images can be created and edited with any text editor, but are more often created with drawing software.

Ink Replay In Office 365

Inking Tools are available in Microsoft Word 365 and Microsoft Excel 365, and Microsoft PowerPoint 365. Why Inking though?

We use this procedure to comment, mark up and annotate content with the use of a pen, a highlighter or felt tip pen. We can also erase any changes that we make and change the color and weight of a line or text that we have added while marking up the content.

An extra command now that has been added on the Draw tab is the Ink Replay command. What is the use of the Ink Replay command?
