Office for iPad gets printing support
Microsoft has included support for printing in Office for iPad, after the key feature was omitted at the original launch.
Microsoft finally released Office for iPad last month, but it was missing a few features: as we noted in our review, it’s “a little strange that there’s absolutely no support for printing via Apple AirPrint”.
At the time, Microsoft defended Office for iPad as having “robust capabilities”, but the company is now rolling up an update to add printing support, saying it was users’ “number one request”.
The system works only with printers that support Apple’s AirPrint; the full list of compatible hardware is available here.
Office for iPad also now features SmartGuides, to help users align objects in the app, such as putting pictures in a row on a slide, plus AutoFit in Excel, which allows you to adjust multiple row widths and column heights at once.
In addition, the update includes bug fixes and stability improvements, Microsoft said.
