Multitasking on the iPad
Slide Over and Split View on iOS 9 will help you get things done faster by allowing you to quickly switch between the Office apps. Here are a few examples:
1. Quickly use a second app. Slide Over lets you open a second app without leaving the one you’re in. Jot down a reminder in OneNote while you’re catching up on email. Or reference your notes while you’re working on a PowerPoint presentation.
2. Use two apps simultaneously. With Split View, you can have two apps open and active at the same time. Copy numbers from Excel into PowerPoint or rehearse a PowerPoint presentation while reviewing background information in Word.
3. Run Outlook side-by-side with Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Tap on a Word, Excel or PowerPoint file attached to an email message and Outlook will automatically launch the corresponding app with the file ready for editing, right next to Outlook. While you edit the Word document, you can still view the email message. After your edits are made, tap the back button in Word and the document will be attached to a new email message in Outlook, ready to be sent.
4. Use OneNote and PowerPoint to present with confidence. While you’re projecting a PowerPoint presentation to an external display, Presenter View provides tools like a laser pointer, pens, highlighters and slide thumbnails. Use Split View and OneNote to scroll through your talking points while the audience sees only your slides on the big screen.
With the new iPad Pro, we’re adding inking to the Office apps and making it easier than ever to create documents and collaborate with others. The new tools include pens, highlighters, an easy-to-use thickness control and a new color wheel. Using Apple Pencil, you can mark up documents just like you would with pencil and paper—making the collaboration process natural and intuitive. And with inking-specific features like shape recognition in PowerPoint, the apps turn the pencil into a first-class content creation tool.
