  3. Document Variable support using office js

    I am working with office.js for developing add-ins.

  4. Set Document template and create custom styles programmatically

    In Word, allow to set the template of the document and the creation of custom styles using the Word JavaScript API. It is also currently not possible to set page margins via the API. The use case is to create add-ins which convert any user document into a standard form that is consistent with a company standards

  6. Getting and setting document properties is not working in Office Online

    Hello,

    I am working on the Office Add-in for Word using the Office JavaScript API. Using Word in Office Online and the latest Word 2016 I could get and set document properties. This all worked but it has now stopped working in Office Online. I get the error when I try to use context.document.properties or context.document.properties.customProperties:

    "Sorry, this function isn’t available. Perform a runtime check on the Office add-in to find out whether the feature is supported by the host."

    I perform the check "Office.context.requirements.isSetSupported('WordApi', 1.3)" to ensure that the version 1.3 of the API is loaded and supported and…

  7. Get/Set document properties such as title authors categories creation date and tags

    Using Office JS on Word 2013, we are unable to retrieve or update the document properties such as Title, Subject, Tags, Categories, Comments, Authors.

    Is there any plan to support this in the Office JS Word 2013 version?

    Thanks

  8. Allow Add-ins on iPad from Centralized Deployment or Office365/SharePoint Add-inCatalog

    Our team is working on the Add-ins for different clients (Word for Desktop, Word Online, Word on iOS, etc.) and we have setup a QA environment on Azure+SharePoint Centralized deployment. We would really like the option to be able to insert add-ins to the iPad through the centralized deployment.

  9. Adding Field Codes for Word Using Word Javascript API

    I want to add field codes using word JavaScript API. I checked the API documentation but I found nothing regarding this. It would be great, if there a possible way to do this through the API.

  15. Allow users to easily get inner HTML/OOXML of Content Controls

    Currently, there does not appear to be an easy way to get the HTML or OOXML representation of the contents of a Content Control, as the getHTML() and getOoxml() results include the control declaration itself. 'getInner...' versions of each method, or a parameter specifying inner or outer, would be very useful.

    Thanks!

    VBA COM Object model supports Application.CompareDocuments to compare and merge word documents. Office.js lacks this capability. Please support this through Office.js

  17. 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!

  18. Wrapping OOXML APIs Needed - insertComment, insertBookmark, insertOoxmlFragment

    The API makes it very very difficult to wrap content in the underlying OOXML with additional OOXML.

    SUGGESTION: It would be great if there were a range.insertComment, range.insertBookmark that worked exactly like range.insertContentControl does! Or please give us a method to get the current OOXML fragment represented by a range. I'm trying to insert bookmarks and I've seen others trying to insert comments, around the selected text. The getOoxml() methods are great if you're writing copy/paste functionality, but that doesn't help you if you're trying to manipulate/wrap the fragment.

  19. Get all Styles in Office 365 Word Document

    With office 365 word add-in development it is not possible to get all existing styles in a word document using word JavaScript API with as strongly type object of the API. The only way is using ooxml document. But the problem is this ooxml file size depend on the size of the word document. For an example, for 4-5 simple word paragraphs, ooxml size is nearly 13-15 pages. So it is very difficult to process styles in a large document using this ooxml. In VB and VBA, we can get all used styles through the API. So could you please…

  20. Support Regex (regular expressions) via Search javascript API

    context.document.body.search and range.search do not accept regular expressions (regex) as search patterns. The current wildcard language that is supported is far less capable. We have documents with lots of patterns that we look for via regular expressions and currently that is not possible with the javascript API. Please consider adding support for that.
