As of yesterday, Microsoft released a brand-new update Office build 14809.20000 to Insiders in the Beta Channel.

The new release brings a lot of functional fixes. No security issues were mentioned this time. So take a look in the changelog down below, what has changed or fixed in this new build.

Word

  • We fixed an issue related to text anchoring in SVG rendering.
  • We fixed an issue where the app closed unexpectedly when the user clicked on or used shortcut keys to turn the Read Aloud feature on and off repeatedly.

Excel

  • We fixed an issue where Autosave could be temporarily disabled after applying a sensitivity label to protect the document.
  • We fixed an issue where you would be unable to select a value from a data validation dropdown list in a cell if that list contained blank values.
  • We fixed an issue where the search results would get lost in the pivot table field list taskpane.
  • We fixed an issue where, in a multi-monitor setup, some data in dialog boxes was being hidden from the user when selecting cells.
  • We fixed an issue where, when you had a Microsoft Excel 97-2003 Worksheet object embedded inside another application (such as a Word document), using the Convert feature to convert it to a Microsoft Excel Worksheet (Office OpenXML) object didn’t complete the conversion until you opened the embedded object and made a change to it. The object is completely converted when using the Convert feature now.
