  2. Add Common Distribution Curve Images to Shapes in Powerpoint (Bellshaped curve, skewed distribution, 1 sided normal distribution, etc)

    Add Common Distribution Curve Images to Shapes in Powerpoint -(Bellshaped curve, skewed distribution, 1 sided normal distribution, etc)

    I often must communicate problems in terms of theoretical population distributions. This is for concepts only of course since actual distributions can be graphed in Excel.

  4. Provide more examples, for example how to file a MailBox.Item to SharePoint.

    I am learning about OWA add-ins but I cannot find anything about mailing an item. I was able to find an example on filing attachments but not about filing an Item

  7. Add Office client versions and on-premise version of Office Online server to compatiblity/availability information

    Currently it is very hard to find out, which APIs are available in the different Office client versions (2013, 2016) and impossible to find out which APIs are available in Office Online server on-premise.

    Please add this versioning information into the matrixes documenting which API is available in which version of Office.

  8. Problems, Problems, Problems

    we have big problems with the use of the Power Point API: The current version is full of bugs, versions are exchanged without prior notice, new versions are withdrawn ...

    Why is that? When to expect a debugged, final version??

  10. Linked images using <img> tags in Word desktop don't roundtrip to Word Online

    I'm developing an add-in for Word 2016 and online Word.

    In it, on the desktop version of Word, if I insert html content using document.setSelectedDataAsync with an image tag and URL to an image on our server, the image displays on the desktop version of Word. If I save the same file to OneDrive and show it on the online version of Word, the image does not display. If I wrap the image in an <a> tag with a link, the link shows up when I hover over the image in the online version of Word, but the image never…

  11. Excalc

    there are 2 calculators in a windows pc
    1.calc.exe
    2.excel.exe

    officially i use, excel for calculations more than i use calc

    if there would be a utility excalc.exe which can launch a very simple 100column x 100row excel grid calculator for a quick calculation it would be a great addition

    provided it should have a preloaded formula to perform any basic calculations

  13. A Fix for the Outlook Add-in manifest template

    I found a problem with the Outlook Add-Ins manifest in Visual Studio. Please read this thread:
    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/appsforoffice/thread/214ad336-a373-4c5b-852d-3fd735b6c560/
    It is related to the Manifest designer not opening when the VersionOverrides statement at top of the XML file is in place.
    Removing the line makes the manifest designer to open, but if in place, the manifest always opens in test mode.

  15. Appointment view pane

    When opening an appointment in view mode, the right pane does not show the Add-Ins for Read, even if we designed it. It should act the same as in the mailbox read pane.

  17. Modified VBA to Find Text in a TextBox

    The example code at link https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ff845519%28v=office.14%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396 does not work properly with TextBoxes containing multiline property and line feeds because SelText ignores Chr(10) whereas Value does not ignore them and it results in highlighting the incorrect text (Out by number of Chr(10) characters in the text.)

    The following modified code works correctly with multiline TextBoxes containing Chr(10) characters because it does not mix the use of SelText and Value (Uses only SelText)

    Private Sub btnFindText_Click()

    &#39;This code initializes SelStart from zero to the length of the Text (or Value)
    
    &#39;SelText can then be searched for the string
    Dim lngPosition As Long

  18. Enable recalculation in JavaScript API at worksheet-level, workbook-level and range-level

    At the moment, we could recalculate all currently open workbooks in JavaScript API. It would be necessary to be able to trigger recalculation at worksheet-level, workbook-level and range-level.

    For a comparison, all the recalculation mentioned above are possible in Excel COM (VBA & .NET).

    Formulas are the essence to make an Excel a "program" rather than a database. Recalculation of formulas is how an Excel as a program executes. It is necessary to give developers have more control of these essences of Excel.

  19. Automatically open a mail from spam folder if I select the secure mail option.

    Currently, selecting the "one time, it is a secure mail" the site displays a message to choose if I want to open the mail. It should automatically open if i already indicates that it´s a secure mail.

  20. 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.
