Add ability to collapse selection

Could you add a call to the Office API to collapse the selection? e.g. removeSelectionasync()

Our Eduction Task Pane apps work based on selections and we would like the ability to collapse the selection once the functionality we introduce has been completed.

At present our task pane apps target Word 2013 and Excel online, though we are coming from Word Object Model desktop type applications, so making the cross over.

Gavan, thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate it! Can you please explain your scenario a little bit? We now have a getRange API using which you can get the range of an object (paragraph.getRange(“start”), at the start or the end of it, and then it can be selected. Does this API help with your scenario? We look forward to hearing back from you.

Thanks!
Office Extensibility Team
