Suggested Replies is one of the best-automated features that Outlook has come up with. However, not everyone seems to be a fan of the automated feature. As such, taking into consideration such suggestions, the company will launch a new feature that will let the users turn off the feature if they wish so.

Microsoft’s latest Office Insider Preview Build 14301.20004 adds the ability to turn off the Suggested Replies feature in Outlook. To turn off the automated suggestions, a user needs to head on to File > Options > Mail and then go to the Replies and Forwards section. Clearing the Show suggested replies checkbox would stop the feature from generating automated reply suggestions. Moreover, the new Office Insider Preview Build also fixes issues found in Word, Excel, and Office Suite.

Inside the Office Suite, the new update fixes the issue with the TitleBar. Previously, adding DropShadow properties on the search box caused the TitleBar to be too tall, which, in turn, created layout bugs. For Office Word, the update fixes an issue related to print size being too small in Word Mobile.

For folder names that did not end with “/” was being interpreted by the system as the URL parser: the update also touches upon that. Finally, in Excel, it fixes the issue where localized function names will now be recognized when opening CSV files, and also the issue concerning PowerPoint where a file became unavailable when the source .xlsx file is already running in the background and both files are opened from the ODB local synced folder.

For updating to the latest Microsoft Office Insider Preview Build, the users need to go into their account to any Office program and choose the “Update Now” option.
