Office For iPad Gets Printing, Other New Features

By: Chris Crum - April 29, 2014

Roughly a month ago, Microsoft launched the much-anticipated Office for iPad to much fanfare.

Today, the company announced that it now has printing support, a key feature for office documents. This comes in the first update, and the company says it was the number one request. Also included in the update are SmartGuides in PowerPoint and a few other things.

In Word, you can print with or without markup. In Excel, you can print a selected range, one worksheet or an entire spreadsheet.

“SmartGuides in PowerPoint help you align pictures, shapes, and textboxes as you move them around on a slide,” explains the Office team. “With very little effort, your presentations will look beautifully designed.”

“AutoFit in Excel now lets you adjust the width of multiple rows or the height of multiple columns at the same time,” they add. “With just a few taps, you’ll be sure that your spreadsheet looks better and that no content is hidden.”

Microsoft says millions of people downloaded the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps for iPad.
