    7 May 2013 | 8:35 am
    It’s been months since I blogged. Things have been busy in my current role! My team has been heads down on the most recent significant update to Office 365. It’s a super exciting space to be in and everyone here is committed to delivering innovation on a frequent basis and making sure that our Office 365 customers have tools to manage change. Here’s a list of my personal favorite Office 365 features that I use on almost a daily basis. Of course, this is a snapshot in time since the service is always changing and is by no mean comprehensive of what Office 365 has to offer. In no…

  • 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: Resources Available for VSTO Developers Wishing to Customize the User Interface

    VSTOTeam
    2 May 2014 | 1:23 pm
    [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…
  • VSTO Runtime Update to Address Slow Shutdown and “Unknown Publisher” for SHA256 Certificates

    VSTOTeam
    10 Apr 2014 | 5:07 pm
    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. …

For VSTO developers, Visual Studio 2013 comes with in-the-box design-time support for Office 2013, which previously required a separate download.  VSTO also now supports .NET Framework 4.5.1 – which includes exciting better async debugging, function return values in the debugger, performance improvements,…
  • Announcing Visual Studio 2013 Preview and .NET 4.5.1 support

    VSTOTeam
    27 Jun 2013 | 10:22 am
    For those who've been following the announcements at BUILD these past two days, Visual Studio 2013 Preview has now been officially released. For Office developers, the VS 2013 Preview release means that the Office 2013 design-time support and the .NET 4.5 support that previously required a separate download is now integrated into Visual Studio alongside the existing Office 2010 and .NET 4.0 support. Better yet, we've also added runtime and design-time support for the new .NET Framework 4.5.1 Preview. If you're interested to learn more about the .NET Framework 4.5.1 Preview — which includes…

    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.
  • Crisp Text Display

    31 May 2014 | 1:46 pm
    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…
  • OpenType Math Tables

    MurrayS3
    27 Apr 2014 | 12:53 pm
    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. As the IRI reference discusses, use of the Unicode BiDi Algorithm (UBA) is consistent in the way such IRIs are displayed in plain text, but unfortunately some RTL IRI displays…

    Ever wondered how many work days there are between two dates?  Maybe you are counting down the number of days you have left in the office before your big holiday?  Maybe you just need to know how many days you have until that project is due?  Whatever the reason, using Excel you can calculate the number of business days between two dates. To do so, we will use the NETWORKDAYS formula.

    Have you ever wanted to change a number into a percentage in Excel?

    OneNote Team
    30 Jul 2014 | 9:00 am
    No matter how hard you try, you’ll inevitably run into a situation where you’ll want to write something in between existing content. Maybe you’re a student whose professor forgot to mention an important point earlier in the lecture. Or you are an artist who needs more space to draw. While you could add the content to the bottom of the page or along the side, this isn’t always ideal. Thankfully, OneNote makes it easy to quickly add more room using the Insert Space tool. The Insert Space tool, found on the Insert tab of OneNote 2013’s ribbon, lets you effectively split the content on…

  • 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).

  • eLearning: Creating Flat Design Images from PowerPoint's Clip Art

    Kevin Siegel
    28 Jul 2014 | 6:34 pm
    by AJ Walther     Want to design something that looks fresh and modern? You may want to consider Flat Design. Flat design is an aesthetic that rids the design of any three dimensional attributes. Generally, drop shadows, gradients, outlines, and textures are avoided. When gradients are used, they subtly fade from one color to a slightly different hue of the same color. It is common to see a heavy reliance on icons and banners with close attention to the color palette and font choice. Many of us are working with shoestring budgets while creating eLearning. This means we are often relegated…

It is very tedious, in my opinion, to type on a flat screen. The blog--even after the extensive upgrade we purchased last quarter--was still slow to load on mobile devices.

    by Tony Self   What is more effective, a print document or an online document? It wasn't all that long ago that print documents would definitely have been voted more effective, especially considering the poor quality of computer monitors and slow internet speeds. (Remember trying to pull up a document on a modem?) Given the speed of today's internet and mobile device support, print documents are likely going the way of the dinosaur. Online documents have several advantages to their print counterparts. For instance, eBooks reflow to fit the user's device (think about how…

While much of the course content is relevant to both Americans and Australians, thanks to Captivate's geolocation feature, learners in both countries will see unique, location-specific, information while taking the same course. The first step to adding geolocation features to a project is creating the project as you normally would. In the example that…

How could you possibly take the right decisions if you don’t analyze the factors surrounding your business? Many firms pay the high price of failing to grasp these factors.

    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.
