1 Whats new in Microsoft Office 2010 Or: Learning to love the Ribbon! Jeff Dowley –

2 Agenda? Show the features that are common to all the new 2010 apps New in app-by-app overview for Word, Excel, and Outlook only Talk some about independent vs SharePoint Discuss how productivity apps are no longer either local (to your PC) or cloud Free vs Paid – if I have time? – Features missing if free only? – What does Google have the MS Office doesnt

3 What matters that isnt the Ribbon Program process w/o bloat – Word 2003 = 22,548K, Word 2010 = 22,880K Program Files folder: ~500MB vs 880MB w/more programs Save as PDF/ODT (OpenDocument Text) – previously downloadable add-ons Web-based Office software – SkyDrive for anywhere access – Office Mobile for WP7 Phones – chirp, chirp

4 Office Calisthenics Introduce the Ribbon – The reason/idea behind the Ribbon (xls 39*35=1365 est.)(doc 53*30=1590)(ppt 39*15=585) (one 24*12=288) (pst =3032) Ribbon Tabs, Ribbon Groups, Ribbon expanded Which apps gained the Ribbon for 2010 (OneNote, Outlook, Paint, WordPad) Ribbon take up by 3 rd party software – Nitro PDF Professional, Kaspersky, etc

5 Ribbon in all Office apps Ribbons show menu options across the page horizontally vs old drop-down menu Ribbons are more contextually aware – The program knows what you are doing and trys to show the options valid for that kind of operation – Ribbon options may offer instant preview Try a new font or font property just by starting to select the new setting, which then shows the change before you actually commit the selection to be permanent – Ribbon options use Color, greyscale, more descriptive icons than previous drop-down menus – Groups - Tries to put like tools/features together Location may have changed, but likely most shortcut keys stayed intact Ribbon show/hide to save space

6 Ribbon details continued Lower-R corner of each Ribbon tab has an Enlarge icon to show a windowed/complete set of options per tab Customizable Ribbon – Now you can create your own Tabs and/or Groups – (File -> Options -> Customize Ribbon -> Select Tab Groups -> check/un-check or Add/Remove button) Type Alt key for keyboard shortcut visual aids to the keys for that shortcut (got that?)

7 Universal Office interface changes Contextually aware L-click and R-click with different levels of control Quick access toolbar – Keeps your most used tools as icons in the Upper Left corner – Learns as you use the program over time? – Customizable Backstage View – What is it? Fast commands(Save, Print, Recent docs, ) Info view/tab – Document location (path) – Doc properties (who changed, etc) – Center Pane Tabs (ownership (file rights) » Check for Issues » Sharing / SharePoint options » Versions (backups) – Leave Backstage by selecting any other Tab on the horizontal Ribbon

8 More Universal Changes Print controls changed a bunch Live Preview comes to Paste as Paste Preview Got rid of the R-side Getting Started column at program launch Old Tools->Options window now via File- >Options Compatibility Mode of newer apps to save as older formats

9 Yet more universal changes File->Info shows file info in detail: location, properties, sharing – Demo! Functional use of the lower R window bar – Change View via one of 4 icons – Change % Zoom via slider or text box, plus one more icon for fit to window Built-in photo editing options – remove background, image correction (contrast, sharpness, brightness, color, etc.) Built-in Accessibility Checker for disableds access

10 Shared Documents changes Opening a shared doc = opens a local cache – When done editing, the local copy is automatically synced with the original – Allows full editing offline without merge hassles(?) Shared docs also allows use with up to 256 editors simultaneously – Each editor can see the others edits – Regions of the doc can be blocked so only 1 editor there at a time

11 Office Web Apps – an Intro Save to either SkyDrive or SharePoint – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote have this as a save-as feature (as OpenXML formats) View, navigate, and edit via a Browser or WP7 phone Co-author simultaneously in Excel and OneNote Ultimate goal: Office 365 – meant to compete with Google Apps that are a pay-for-play equal (??) Demo!

12 New in Word Navigation Pane – Relies on use of formatting (Header3, Header2, etc) – Allows manipulation of doc layout directly in Nav Pane interface – New home of Search Search is immediate as letters typed Replace and like controls still present NEW: Search on figures, tables, photos Objects (tables, images, etc) can have alt text Recover unsaved work – autosave with greater depth of saves

13 Working with Word 2010 SmartArt graphics – pics within pics, plus text within pics Mark a doc as Final = lock out of editing for readers Better screenshot features More font types and controls – OpenType typefaces Demo!

14 New in Excel Trusted docs – one-time only query to establish trust of a file that has active content (macros, data links) Protected View – read-only on steroids = default of edit- disabled if source was the Internet, can set up over-rides by source Recover previous versions – both auto and manual saved file history Built-in Equation Editing tools that allow equation to be expressed as mathematical symbols Better backwords compatibility of unsupported features – A 2010 doc will open in 2007, but without the unsupported features as opposed to just Not Opening More themes and styles for worksheet layout

18 New in Outlook 2010 – just the mail Moved a bunch of features to the Backstage – Made more visual space for the mail/features (quotas, etc) Created a placeholder and automatable shortcuts for most common actions: Quick Steps (smart meeting replies, forward to X) More search criteria to use in finding items The ever so lovely Ignore button Clean Up Conversations – jettison the repeated content / entire s- Yea! Spell checking works in more places – Subject Line, etc

21 SharePoint and Office Apps Excel - Improved user experience – better placed scroll bars on data sets, auto refresh changed data Excel - Better integration: file security control, revision control, content management (?)
