“We also introduced new tools to help you edit your pictures from within Office for iPad. When you tap a picture you now see two new options: Crop and Reset. Crop lets you do exactly what it sounds like: crop your picture.
You can do this manually, using your finger to set exactly the range you’d like to crop to, or you can select from a menu of popular options. Reset allows you to quickly remove all styles and other changes from your pictures, in case you want to start over.
Export to PDF is available in the Share menu in all of our apps, and it’s available for everyone to use, whether you have an Office 365 subscription or not. Office for iPad now supports third-party fonts! If you use one of several apps to install fonts on your iPad (for example, AnyFont), Office for iPad will now recognize and allow you to use those fonts in any documents you create.”
