Office Web apps server: missing Desktop features RRS feed

  • Question

  • Generally we notice that many usual functionalities that Microsoft Word for Desktop offers are simply not available in the Word online editor. While the preview generally works fine the editing mode lacks many features like column-based layouts, text fields, thesaurus and shapes. E.g. once we load a document from Sharepoint that has a column-based layout it basically gets scrambled in edit mode.

    We are aware that an online editor cannot bring every feature that Word has every implemented in the past 20+ years, but the ones I mentioned seem fairly basic to me.

    Are there any plans to integrate these features and if so does Microsoft have a roadmap / schedule for them?
