Microsoft Introduces Printing Option In Office App For IPad

Recently, Microsoft updated their Office version for iPad by including an advanced printing support to the app. The update comes shortly after Microsoft launched the much awaited Office app for iPad on March 27, 2014. As stated in the Microsoft support page, the latest update will definitely please customers, as it would allow them to now use the printing option.

When the Office app for iPad was initially launched, many users were surprised as to why the printing feature was omitted from the program. But now, Microsoft has incorporated the feature into the updated version of the Office app for iPad. In a blog post, the software company stated that this printing feature was the most requested one by users, and that is the sole reason why the latest update was launched just 33 days after the initial launch of the app. Earlier, the iPad users who were subscribed to Office 365 had access to create and edit Word, PowerPoint or Excel documents. But now, with this feature, the iPad users will be able to read and print documents via the Office app. These users can print Office documents using the advanced AirPrint feature provided by Apple. Another feature includes the ability to print documents with or without markups in Word. While using the desktop version of Office, users can print the whole document, a single page or even a range of different pages in Word and Excel.

In PowerPoint, the users can now print single slides. The latest feature included in PowerPoint goes by the name SmartGuides and it helps the users to line up pictures, textboxes and shapes. Some of the other useful options include AutoFit for Excel, wherein the users can adjust the height and the width of multiple rows and columns. In addition to these, Microsoft has also included several bug fixes with the new Microsoft Office for iPad and improved the overall stability of the application. Although many users were worried about the unavailability of printing support in Office for iPad initially, and checked the Microsoft support page for options, the application was definitely a massive success.

According to reports, almost 12 million downloads of the Office app for iPad were generated in the first week after its release. Thus, with the inclusion of the printing feature now, it is clear that it will only result in the increase in sales of the application.
