Mainstream Office 365 users will get the ability to embed 3D animations in Word and PowerPoint starting next month. Also starting next month, PowerPoint users will get the ability to convert their digital pen ink into text on a slide, plus the ability to select everything in a complex image in a slide and convert it to text or shapes all at once.
PowerPoint users also are getting, as of this month, curated slide recommendations in PowerPoint via the Designer feature. Microsoft touts PowerPoint Designer as using AI and natural-language processing to handle the conversion of text into the curated slides.
Microsoft is adding new gestures in Ink Editor for editing documents with a digital pen in tablet mode. Among these new gestures are the ability to insert new lines, add missing words and delete and highlight content.
