      Today’s post was written by Anthony Olivieri, Chief Technology Officer at Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. One of the best things about working in technology is that there’s always something new, some way to “build a better mousetrap.” But mousetraps are only worthwhile if they truly address the business needs that you’ve identified within your organization.

    OneNote is a great place to catalog your recipes. And now adding them to OneNote is a piece of cake (pun intended) with the OneNote web clipper or the email clipper (me@onenote.com). When you use the OneNote web clipper or email clipper (me@onenote.com) to clip a recipe, we’ll simplify the page down to just the steps, ingredients, and key pieces of information you need most, giving your recipes a simpler, cleaner format in OneNote.

This is game changing and marries the beautiful, rich value of a rich client with the deployment ease of a browser app.  Many people in today’s world carry multiple devices that have compute power, local storage and a unique form factor. Users shouldn’t have to use a browser experience as the lowest common denominator across all their devices when they can enjoy rich apps that deliver optimized experiences – good examples of apps that do this…

  • VSTO Runtime Update to Address Slow Shutdown on .NET Framework 4.5.2

    VSTOTeam
    16 Jul 2014 | 4:30 pm
    In a VSTO Runtime release earlier this year, we addressed an issue of slow application shutdown for add-ins using WPF controls on touch-enabled devices. With the release of .NET Framework 4.5.2 two months ago, and the increased usage of our latest runtime “in the wild”, we received customer feedback that the latest .NET 4.5.2 version interacts negatively with our latest VSTO Runtime version, introducing a different application shutdown issue. Today, we’re happy to announce that we’ve quickly turned around a fix in the release of VSTO Runtime version 10.0.50701.  The update is…

    [Guest Post by Marty Andren, Premier Field Engineer at Microsoft] As a Microsoft Premier Field Engineer / Office Developer, a question I’m often asked when helping customers develop VSTO solutions is how to customize the user interface when building out their application. This question is not as simple as it sounds, as the approach used will vary depending on which version of Visual Studio you are using, and which version of Office you are targeting for your particular application. There are a number of good references available on MSDN that address this very topic. I’ve listed out a…

    We are pleased to announce a new version of the VSTO Runtime (10.0.50325) that addresses two important issues reported to us by customers. For VSTO add-ins using WPF controls, customers using touch-enabled devices experienced a 15-20 second lag when closing Office applications. This issue was first reported via a Connect bug, which helped provide the context for investigating and fixing this bug. Additionally, for developers using SHA256 code-signing certificates, the installation Trust Prompt would erroneously display “Unknown Publisher” even when the publisher was fully trusted. …

    Murray Sargent: Math in Office

  • RichEdit Plain-Text Controls

    MurrayS3
    21 Jul 2014 | 1:08 pm
    A Unicode plain-text editor appears to have a single set of character formatting properties for the entire text and a single set of paragraph formatting properties. With NotePad, for example, you can choose a normal, bold, italic, or bold-italic font of any reasonable size and your choice is used consistently throughout the text (at least if the text is all of one script). In particular, you cannot have a run of text with a bold font followed by a run with a normal weight font. Such variations are nominally the province of rich text. Paragraph properties are limited to the BiDi attributes of…
  • Math Greek Letter Bug Fixed

    MurrayS3
    26 Jun 2014 | 4:53 pm
    When Word 2007 and later versions write an RTF file that includes math alphanumeric symbols (see U+1D400..U+1D7FF), they convert the symbols back to ASCII or Greek in the BMP (basic multilingual plane) and then write the characters out using the appropriate charset, namely ANSI_CHARSET for Latin letters like a..z, and GREEK_CHARSET for Greek letters. In addition Word writes the relevant math style \mstyN (upright, bold, italic, bold-italic) and math script \mscrN (Roman, script, Fraktur, double-struck, sans-serif, monospace) control words to identify the original math alphanumeric symbols.

    Kaspar commented on my post Office Adopts New Windows Display Technology “I always wondered why the text in OneNote 2013 looks so much better than Word 2013.” Curious, I typed some math into Word and OneNote on my 3200 x 1800 resolution Samsung ATIV laptop and compared them. The two displays looked pretty similar! For finer examination, I ran the zoomin.exe applet and looked at the pixels of a math italic b in the equation The character stems in Word were black with varying shades of gray pixels on the edges, while the stems in OneNote had varying hues of colored pixels on the…

    The math tables created for the math facility in Word 2007 and other Microsoft Office applications are now officially part of the OpenType standard ISO/IEC CD 14496-22 3rd edition. See Section 6.3.6 MATH. You can download a copy of the whole standard from here. We always hoped that the tables would become part of the official OpenType standard so as to encourage people to create math fonts with the power and elegance of the Cambria Math font which ships with Windows. I’ve been sending the math-table specification to anyone who asked for several years now, but it’s…
  • BiDi Hyperlinks

    MurrayS3
    30 Mar 2014 | 12:47 pm
    More precisely, this post is about BiDi Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs). These objects are a generalization of Universal Resource Identifiers (URIs) that can contain a large variety of nonASCII characters, such as most alphabetic characters and Chinese characters. Complications occur when BiDi characters such as Arabic and Hebrew are used in IRIs especially when displayed in a right-to-left (RTL) context.

  • How to recycle your [legal] briefs safely

    Deborah Savadra
    10 Jul 2014 | 7:30 am
    In my observation, if there's one thing you lawyers love, it's repeating yourselves. No, not when you speak; it's when you write. Y'all recycle so much old material from briefs and other documents, it puts Ed Begley, Jr. to shame. Some of the problems with all that cutting and pasting are pretty obvious: another client's name being left in (oops) or funky formatting that doesn't match the new document. But others aren't. What sort of evil stuff lurks in that text you just pasted over from your last magnum opus? And how's it going to undermine your next court filing? Click the link below to…

    Quick shout-out to The Droid Lawyer, who has somehow come up with a working template for pleading paper for Google Docs. It's specific to California, and it costs $10 (as of the time I'm hitting the Publish button), but if you have to do pleadings in this format, it's arguable worth more than $10. Click the link for more info (and an offer in case you're still using Microsoft Word for your pleading paper).

  • Adobe Captivate 8: Changing the Size of Responsive Layouts

    Kevin Siegel
    16 Jul 2014 | 2:04 pm
    by Kevin Siegel    As far as I'm concerned, the hottest new feature you'll find in Adobe Captivate 8 is the ability to create responsive eLearning. As I taught you a few weeks ago, by choosing File > New > Responsive Project, you can basically create and work on multiple screen sizes (called break points) in one project. When you publish the responsive project, the learner will automatically be served the break point appropriate for the device they're using.   If you've spent any time creating Responsive Projects, you've probably noticed that there are…
  • Writing & Grammar: Pardon the Interruption

    Kevin Siegel
    14 Jul 2014 | 4:52 pm
    by Jennie Ruby    You can interrupt a sentence four different ways--with dashes, parentheses, commas, or no punctuation at all. Dashes actually emphasize the interruption, like this: One of the best things about the previous two versions--the versions before the company was taken over by XYX, Inc.--was the user interface. Parentheses de-emphasize the interruption: The correspondence between the codes (see Table 2) is nearly one-to-one. Commas indicate an interruption that is not essential to the meaning of the sentence:  The new interface, we all agree, is much easier to use. Interruptions…

    by Kevin Siegel    I'm continuing to enjoy developing eLearning using the new Adobe Captivate 8. And the more I use this updated version, the more I find subtle improvements and new features. Take video demos for instance. I use the video demo recording mode frequently (it's the mode I use for the videos I upload to YouTube). While recording a recent video, I noticed a new tab on the Video Effects Inspector: Popup. It just so happened that I had recorded a video and had inadvertently captured a yellow tooltip (shown in the image below). I figured this would be the perfect…

    by Jennie Ruby    How can you use your voiceover script to keep the learner's attention within an eLearning lesson? Here are the two most important factors: Make it proportional and make it conversational. Make the Voiceover Proportional to the Action In a recent informal test at a conference for instructional designers, the audience started waving and yelling "Stop! Stop!" after less than two sentences of voiceover text was read for one PowerPoint slide. Now granted, that second sentence was a doozy, weighing in at more than 47 words, but still. Two sentences?

  • Adobe Captivate: Record Simulations Using Smart Shapes Instead of Text Captions

    Kevin Siegel
    2 Jul 2014 | 7:28 am
    by Kevin Siegel      Text Captions have been available in Adobe Captivate since before Captivate was Captivate (think RoboDemo). While there's nothing terribly wrong with Text Captions, you're a bit limited when it comes to editing the way they look. Take the Text Caption shown below for example. The arrow in the upper left of the caption is known as a callout.    You can control a few attributes of the callout (you can use the Properties Inspector to select from a list of pre-determined positions and you can elect not to show the callout).

    Why does slide design matter? Because you’ll never succeed at making great presentations if you can’t create slides that merge great content with visual appeal. As a presenter, you already know that content is what come first. My point here is that slapping a well-structured presentation is just not enough to wow people. Bad design is a credibility killer If your presentation looks bad or average, you won’t look credible.
