Task pane position RRS feed

  • Question

  • When developing a Word web add-in, is it possible to customise the location of the task pane relative to the document? For example, can I have the task pane appear above the document instead of to its right?

  • Hi Beruh,

    As far as I know, the position of Office add-ins for the Word online is fixed. We are not able to change the its position.

    If you want Word Online to support changing the position of task pane or any other feedback, you can submit from the bottom of the web page of Word Online like figure below:

    Hope it is helpful.

    Regards & Fei
