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?
First of all in order for this to work, means that we must have uploaded our Document, Workbook or Presentation on our OneDrive Storage Space.
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. Office Online is completely free, can easily be accessed from any device, and is better for real-time collaboration.
Let’s see this in action then.
In nowadays users want to use their pens to comment, annotate and illustrate ideas and thoughts on documents, spreadsheets and presentations. The ability to replay ink strokes like they were drawn lets us design things step by step or even to show a process of thoughts. This is where the Ink Replay command appears.
In a previous post of mine named Start Inking in PowerPoint, I described the feature of Drawing-Using Ink in a Presentation. We can find the Inking Tools by activating the Draw tab of the Ribbon. 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?
What is Docs.com?
It is an online showroom where we able to collect and publish Word Documents, Excel Workbooks, PowerPoint Presentations, OneNote Notebooks, PDF Files. We can easily publish our content directly without even needed to leave our application. It makes it easy for us to share with others what we are interested in, and our content will look great on any device. For this post, I will use as examples Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
In the image below, I have the Word 2016 application running, and then I have selected the File tab in order to move in backstage view. Once in backstage view, from the left of the drop down menu the Publish category is selected. In Word 2016 we have the only option to publish our document to Docs.com.
If we are saving documents for other people to open or they are reading our document using software other than Microsoft Office, or even if we intend to open the document on another computer, we have to choose the format that we need to save the document in order to be viewed. The way we save a document and the format that we save it, depends on how we plan to use the document.
In the image below I am running the Microsoft Word 2016 application and I have selected the File tab in order to move to Backstage View and then from the drop down menu that appears from the left I have selected the category Export.
When we have installed Microsoft Office 2013 and Office 2016, with the Click To Run way, the updates for Office are done automatically, when the new updates are available. However, in the Account section of our product, we can manually manage the updates by either installing them or disabling them or learning about them. In this post I will describe the Office Updates feature in Microsoft Word 2016.
First of all we must select the File tab in order to move to Backstage View. Once in Backstage View from the left of the drop down menu we select the category Account as shown in the image below. At the left of the menu and under the area Product Information we notice the Update Options command.
Once we select the Update Options command as shown in the image below, the drop down menu appears with the following commands in order to choose from:
Update Now: Once we select this command we can check and apply the updates for all the Office Programs.
Disable Updates: Once we select this command we will not update for security, performance and reliability.
View Updates: Once we select this command we will see our history update for the current product.
About Updates: Once we select this command we will learn more about updates.
