Smart Tags
A set of buttons shared across Office applications, smart tags appear as needed (when you paste data, for example, or make an error in a Microsoft Excel formula) to provide options for completing a task quickly.

Task Panes
Access important tasks from a single location with task panes. Perform searches, open documents, view your Clipboard, format documents and presentations, download templates from the Web, and more.

Paste Options Smart Tags
Change the formatting of copied data before you paste it into a new document with Paste Options smart tags. You can even apply specific characteristics to data, based on content.

AutoCorrect Options Smart Tags
Control automatic functions that take place within Office applications. You can undo or disable automatic corrections, and access the AutoCorrect Options dialog box without going to the Tools menu.

File New (Task Pane)
Now you can launch a new document from inside another document, create documents from templates stored on the Web, and see a list of recently used templates and documents.

Office Clipboard (Task Pane)
The Clipboard now holds 24 pieces of information—double the number in Office 2000. Thumbnails in Task Pane View make it easier to distinguish among items.

Office Document Imaging
Scan documents for later viewing or to reuse the text in Office applications. Take advantage of the text search capabilities of Office to search scanned documents.

Speech Recognition
Increase productivity by using speech to dictate text and voice commands to make formatting changes and navigate menus.

Notes you take on a handheld device can be uploaded to Office applications as text. You can also write directly in Microsoft Word—in Japanese, Chinese, and Korean, in addition to English—and save your work as a handwritten document or convert it to text or typed characters.

Compress Pictures
Compress images simply by designating how they will be used (on the Web, for example). Office XP compression minimizes file size without sacrificing quality.

Office E-Mail Introduction
Add a short introduction to e-mail messages sent from Office applications.

Ask a Question
Get help in Office XP by typing questions into the Office menu bar without launching the Answer Wizard or Office Assistant.

Office Assistant
In Office XP, the Office Assistant is hidden by default and only appears when Help is activated.

Now hidden by default

The task pane makes it easy to find text in a document and locate files or folders from within the document you are working on. You can also index files on your machine for faster searches.

Document Recovery
In the event of a program error, Microsoft PowerPoint®, Word, Excel, and Access let you save the file you are working on when the error occurs.

Word and Excel offer improved password security through the addition of the CryptoAPI standard. Password encryption has been added to PowerPoint for the first time.

Send for Review
New features let you assign roles to everyone involved in the document review cycle, while automatically providing the correct tools for each reviewer. As the review process progresses, changes can be easily merged back into the original document.

Compare and Merge
Office XP makes it easier to merge comments and revisions from more than one reviewer into a single version of a document, and accept or reject proposed edits.

Markups in Word and PowerPoint now appear in the right margin of documents, and identify revisions and reviewer comments without obscuring the original document or affecting its layout.

New Reviewing toolbar features include the option to view changes by specific reviewers or by all reviewers, and then accept or reject changes one at a time or all at once.

Smart Tag Extensibility
Smart tag technology provides a great platform for third-party developers building business solutions for Office XP users. One example: a smart tag that links you to customers, orders, and prices when you type an order number into Excel.

XML Support in Excel and Access
Rich support for XML in Office XP lets you load and save XML directly into Excel, and analyze online data by querying XML spreadsheets from the Web. In Access, you can import and export XML schemata, data, and tables automatically using default settings, or you can take advantage of advanced options that provide more control.

Office Web Components
Excel Web Components now support native Excel files and named ranges, and allow for multiple worksheets, wrapped texts, and the ability to publish interactive workbooks to the Web.
