Enhanced digital writing assistance
Note: These enhanced style suggestions are available only when your proofing language is set to English.
Editor, your digital writing assistance has now more style suggestions to offer. Editor checks for potential writing and style issues and indicates the word or phrase with a dotted gold underline. When you see a gold dotted line below a word, right click on the word or phrase and consider one of the alternative suggestions to correct the writing style issue. For more information see, Select grammar and writing style options.
Move pages from side to side
Open your favorite Word document and flip through the pages by sliding them side by side like a stack of paper. To try, go to theView tab and chooseSide to Side. Your document opens in two page mode. Flip through the pages using the backward scroll on your mouse wheel or use the horizontal scroll bar to move through the pages. Also, you can chooseThumbnails when you haveSide to Side selected, to see your entire document in one view.
Easier background removal
We've made it easier to remove and edit the background of a picture. Word automatically detects the general background area; you no longer have to draw a rectangle around the foreground of your picture. The pencil for marking areas to keep or remove can now draw free-form lines, rather than being limited to straight lines.
