When writing my last post,Using the OpenXML SDK Productivity Tool to "decompile" Office documents (Turn *X files into the C# OpenXML SDK code that would generate them), I came across this;
I'm like, "What?" No...
Contains content from dev.office.com that is openly editable by the public.
You can contribute to Office developer documentation in a few different ways:
- Contribute to articles via the public Office developer docs repo*
- Report documentation bugs via GitHub Issues
- Add documentation requests to the Office/SharePoint developer UserVoice
*We're only taking documentation contributions for the OpenXML Conceptual content at this time
The content in the office-content repository is grouped first by article language, then by topic. The README.md file at the root of each topic directory specifies the structure of the articles within the topic.
Article within each topic are named by MSDN GUID rather than title name. This is a side effect of our document management process and cannot be changed at this time. We highly recommend using the table of contents within each topic directory (see links below) to navigate to the files you wish to view or edit.
Now that's cool...
