On 5/19/16, we released build 16.0.6868.2067 to our Office Insider audience. To get the update, click File > Account (or Office Account in Outlook) > Update Options > Update Now.
While this update doesn't have new features, it does contain some significant fixes (and one known issue.) To those of you who are actively reporting these and other issues on Twitter or here in the forum, or by clicking File > Feedback, thank you!
What's fixed in Insider build 16.0.6868.2067
•Fixes an issue where the link to view older mail messages on the server doesn’t appear at the bottom of the list of messages in the folder, such as the Inbox or Deleted Items folder. (Special thanks to Martin K for reporting this issue.)
•Fixes an issue where Outlook doesn’t send the message content when sending mail using a .msg file.
•Updates the Inbox Repair Tool (scanpst.exe) so that it can detect and correct file corruption issues related to how .pst files are indexed and searched. This type of corruption can prevent .pst files from loading, cause Outlook to crash, or cause high CPU utilization.
•Fixes an issue where if you perform an undo action after moving a SmartArt graphic by dragging, Word crashes or the SmartArt graphic becomes blank and can’t be selected.
•Fixes an issue where if PowerPoint has restarted after a crash and you’re using the Document Recovery task pane, you get an error message when you try to save the recovered file or open the original file.
•Fixes an issue where PowerPoint crashes when trying to save a recovery file that was created from a previous PowerPoint crash.
•Fixes an issue where if you have a presentation that includes a table, and then save the presentation as a PDF, PowerPoint crashes.
•Fixes an issue where numbers and spaces are lost when saving a presentation in .rtf format or copying text into a rich-text editor, such as WordPad.
•Fixes an issue in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint where setting the pen thickness for inking causes the app to crash.
•Fixes an issue where the Document Recovery task pane doesn’t appear the next time you open the Office app after it has crashed, especially if you re-open the app right after it crashed.
