    Announcing February feature update for Office 2016 for Office 365

    On March 9, 2017, we released the February feature update for Office 2016. To get the update immediately, open any Office 2016 app and choose File > Account > Update Options > Update Now. After you install the update, you should be running Version 1702 (Build 7870.2020).

    What's new in this release?
    The following features are now available to Office 365 subscribers:

    • Set things straight: On devices that have touch screens, click Draw > Ruler to draw straight lines or to align a set of objects along a straight edge. The ruler pivots to any position you want: horizontal, vertical, or anything in between: it has a degrees setting so that you can set it at a precise angle, if necessary. Learn more

    • Enhanced digital writing assistant: With additional intelligent services built-in, Editor is better able to recognize your words in context and offer the right spelling suggestions. Look for these improvements in Word and Outlook. Learn more

    • Easier background removal: In Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, we've made it easier to remove and edit the background of a picture. You no longer have to draw a rectangle around the foreground of your picture; instead, the app will automatically detect the general background areas. In addition, the pencil for marking areas to keep or remove can now draw free-form lines, rather than being limited to straight lines.Learn more

    • Move pages from side to side: In Word, navigate pages in Print Layout view by sliding them side-to-side like a stack of paper. To try it, click View >Side to Side. Learn more

    • From Visio to PowerPoint in a few clicks: Take snippets of a Visio drawing and export them as slides to PowerPoint. To get started, open a diagram and click View > Slide Snippets Pane. In the pane, click Add to snip portions of your diagram and Export to send your slide snippets to a new PowerPoint slide deck. Learn more
