When Apple surprised everyone with its latest cursor support innovation in March, other software developers have tried to join the bandwagon and Microsoft is not left out.
In the past months, Microsoft has announced its intention to make new updates to Office for iPad that will provide supportfor Apple’s most recent iPadOSTrackpad and Mouse support. This decision comes as no surprise as Microsoft is globally known to consistently refresh its varying scope of iOS applications with Apple’s most recent programming features. This include the latest updates scheduled for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and others.
True to its words -that mouse and Trackpad support will be presented in Word and Excel Apps on iPad by this fall- theTrackpad support testing was commenced in the final week of September on Microsoft’s most recent version Excel and Word apps.
By using the Trackpad support, it will be extremely easy to make use of the Word and Excel App with an increase in efficiency and functionality. It becomes really easy to manoeuvre the application’s icons and their respective functionswith the assistance of Trackpad. This latest update provides a commendable visual feedback as you make alterations to your spreadsheets or Word documents. Now, once you position a finger on the Trackpad, the cursor springs up immediately on the screen in form of a circle. It doesn’t stop there. This circle (cursor) also smoothly transforms into different shapes as it floats above varying on-screen components and icons.
