New features in documents
Text to table. Quickly convert existing text to a table in a couple of clicks instead of creating a new table and then copying the content to it. It’s also possible to reverse the process and arrange your table as plain text.
Where to find: To convert text to a table, go to Insert -> Table -> Convert text to table.
To convert table to text, select the table, click the Table settings on the right panel and then click Convert table to text.

New features in presentations
Version History. View and restore previous versions of your presentations.
Where to find: File tab -> Version History.

Delete or resolve comments you already reviewed in a couple of clicks. This could be done for all comments left in the document, comments for a specific abstract, and all of your own comments.
Where to find: Collaboration tab
More accessibility and usability: new scaling options and chart styles
New scaling options. In addition to 100%, 150%, and 200%, documents, spreadsheets, and presentations can now be scaled to 125% and 175%. The scaling is applied automatically in accordance with browser or system settings.
