Adds a new trackpad sketching feature to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. ($149.99 new for one-time purchase, $99.99/$69.99 annual subscription options, free update)

Aaaaaah! With Word still suffering with file corruption problems, why add a sketching feature? When will MS fix the core product? Part of my business consists of editing large papers for graduate and doctoral students with English as a secondary language. The files usually contain 200-300 pages. File corruption is common. The corrupt comes not from viruses nor email nor unplugging external storage devices without first ejecting the devices. The problem is instability in Word. The existence of an Open and Repair command in Word tells us everything we need to know. It would be nice if MS fixed the editing functions before adding secondary or tertiary gizmos.
