Office Lens basically behaves as a portable scanner. Scanning through Office Lens is nothing but taking pictures of the document one wants to scan, through their Windows phone. Microsoft has mentioned that that this Office Lens can be used to scan anything like “business cards, restaurant menus, and notes on whiteboards or blackboards”.
Office Lens for Windows Phone has received an update yesterday, upgrading itself to version 1.1.3306.0 and bringing some new features as well as some noticeable improvements. One new feature that comes with this update is the ability to convert images to word or powerpoint files and then they can be saved to OneDrive. The other is that, strokes that are handwritten can be transformed into drawing objects.
The complete changelog of the update v1.1.33060.0 is:
– Your pictures can be converted to Word or PowerPoint files and saved to OneDrive.
– For Word files, the document layout is preserved and the text in your picture is converted into editable text.
– For PowerPoint files, handwritten strokes are transformed into drawing objects that can be recolored and edited. You can also remove the background of drawings.
