Microsoft updates Office for iPad with export to PDF and other features

Office for iPad got a lot of downloads when it launched “four months ago,” but the retention of people using the different apps is unknown. Considering the necessity of an Office 365 subscription, a lot of people might not be able to use the editing features.

Microsoft has updated the suite of apps including Excel, PowerPoint, and Word with various updates, but the best new feature has to be export to PDF.

Export to PDF in Word for iPad

Export to PDF is available to everyone regardless of subscription and is found through the Share menu.

The individual app updates are:


  • PivotTables
  • New flick gesture for handling selected data
  • Added scaling and paper sizes for printing


  • Presenter View to see notes and additional information
  • Add audio and video inside presentations, play natively in the app, insert video from Camera Roll

Included with the general updates like export to PDF is support for third-party fonts  and Crop and Reset options for images.
