Office Insiders new Word feature and fixes


The 14 June 2019 Office 365 for Windows Insiders release 11807.20000 has a new feature in Word plus some fixes.

Here’s the details including Microsoft’s report on ‘Notable Fixes’.

Word – precision ink erasing

PowerPoint already has small and medium ink erasers.  They are now in Word too.

In PowerPoint or Word go to Draw | Tools | Eraser

The smaller erasers let you remove small parts of an digital ink stroke instead of the broad eraser.
