        Mikhail, thanks for your feedback! This is a very popular feature. This feature is now available as public preview. Please check out the open spec docs at this location to get more details: https://github.com/OfficeDev/office-js-docs/blob/ExcelJs_OpenSpec/reference/excel/range.md

        Additionally, you can try out the new API features by using the built-in code snippets that are available in Script Lab https://github.com/OfficeDev/script-lab/blob/master/README.md. In Script Lab, you’ll find samples that use preview APIs listed in the Preview APIs category:

        Please give it a try and let us know what you think.

        Thanks!

      • Need content Controls found on desktop Excel and Word applications to be avaiable in web version of Excel and Word

        Content controls like found in the desktop version of Excel Word need to also exist on the Web version of Excel Word and function the same. The same controls should be able to be used on the desktop version of Excel and Word and the Web version of Excel and Word. This would allow moving Excel and Word files containing content controls between the desktop and Office 365's OneDrive and SharePoint sites. The Workbooks and documents with content controls would work the same in both environments (desktop and Online). This is a critical need!

          Jim, thank you for your feedback! Please note that there’s no notion of content controls in Excel. Content controls feature is only available in Word.

          Also, the content control API is already available in Word Online. However, content controls are currently not editable in Word Online, and this is currently being worked on. We’ll keep you posted when this is available.

          Thanks!

        • API to point to next and previous paragraph from the current paragraph

          It would be very useful for processing large document to have the ability to access previous and next paragraph from any paragraph object.

            • Opt out or in of saving add-in to document

              Saving a document with an add-in panel open, saves the add-in along with the document.

              The next time the document is opened the add-in opens with it. If the add-in is not installed it will be suggested to the user.

              In cases where an add-in generates content for the user the add-in may not be meant for user's clients in which case it would be great to have this functionality as either opt out or opt in.

                    • Excel - Add CopyWorksheet

                      We have a need to repeat the same formatted Worksheet over and over based on selections made by the user. It would be great to setup a template so that same worksheet can be copied. The worksheet has all formatting including printing stuff in place already. Be great to just be able to copy that and fill in the data.

                        Authenticated O365 users shall not be prompted to login again when they want to use Word Add-In. At the moment any Word Add In secured using O365 directory need to prompt users to enter their credential again despite that they have logged in to O365.
                        The goal is to provide a better user experience with this single sign on.

                        • allow add-in to use user's authorizations

                          An add-in that has been installed, and approved should not have to initiate another oauth flow to have access to documents on a sharepoint site, onedrive site, onedrive for business site,etc.
                          The API should make this readily available when the user is logged in, and has already granted permissions to the add-in itself.

                                Renat, thanks for reporting this issue! We are aware of this and the bug is currently being patched. Note that the undo stack will be removed upon any “update” action occurring in the add-in. For read actions, we’ll preserve the undo-stack. We’ll let you know when this is available.

                                Thanks,
                                Office Extensibility Team

                                    There is a bug I've discussed on MSDN forum:
                                    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/cb7b7f3b-c59b-4868-b80f-da6c82b45231/office-api-rich-text-content-control-html-coercion-problem-ordered-lists

                                    Basically, when html for an ordered list passed with coercion type html into a rich text content control, last element of list rendered as a seperate paragraph.

                                    A fix would be nice.

                                    Thanks

                                    • Add User Defined function support to the Apps for Office Excel APIs

                                      Add User Defined function support to the Apps for Office Excel APIs so that users can enter formulas in excel. User Defined Functions are one of the most powerful features of Excel (and some competitor spreadsheets products now available in the web). They are critical for us to make our Apps for Office product as powerful as our legacy on premise product.

                                      • Create a new Word Online document

                                        Add a function in Office.js to create a new Word online document to the logged in user's OneDrive account.

                                        This call would utilize the code behind the "+new" button in OneDrive by generating a new Word Online document in the top level folder location.

                                        Also add the ability to append content to this new document.

                                        Finally add the ability to open this document.

                                        e.g Pseudocode:

                                        // Create a document in memory:
                                        var doc = WordOnline.Create();

                                        //Insert paragraph
                                        doc.InsertParagraph("This is my first paragraph");

                                        //open document
                                        doc.Launch();

                                        This would be of great benefit to educational task pane apps for creating specific lesson…

                                            Hi folks,

                                            We’ve added some changes to our documentation to better cover our REST APIs. For existing APIs (such as the list, list items, folders, and files APIs), we added additional documentation in MSDN. Moving forward, we are trying our best to fully document new REST APIs, an example of which is the new Files API included in the recently-announced Office 365 APIs. Please let us know what you think — we’re happy to make changes based on constructive criticism.

                                            Thanks!
