Microsoft’s Word Editor gets cleaner and easier to use

A few days ago, Microsoft has announced a few some improvements for Editor, which should make the tool more straightforward, one-click use for suggestions and changes.

Quicker access to clear, correct copy

With the specified purpose of simplifying the Editor, the developers have improved the interface with quicker suggstions to get to the desired result.

The updates can be summarized as follows:

  • Left or right-click grammar suggestions (spelling, tone & other intelligent suggestions)
  • Shift+F10 or Alt+Down shortcut on any underlines word for full Editor suggestions
  • Overall more focus on suggestions.
  • Easier access to review experience.

The new interface will co-exist with former shortcuts to suggestions (simple right-click or Shift+F10), so as not to affect the users’ productivity, Microsoft mentioned.

For a start, the left-click suggestions are visible for Outlook users running the Beta Channel Version 2010 or later. It is going to be introduced for Word users running Version 2010 (Build 13328.20000) ) or later.

Those that have installed the Office suite on Macs will also been able to enjoy the new options pretty soon.

If you’ve already started using the new Editor options, Microsoft encourages feedback for even more improvement.

We’d also like to know your take on these changes (perhaps compared to other similar tools). Use the comments section to share your opinion with us.
