Hotfix for Windows 10 update 1903: Excel and Outlook add-ins

Recently we have received a few reports about problems with our task pane-based add-ins, such as Add Text for Excel. We investigated the problem and found out that Microsoft has prepared us and our users a surprise in the 1903 Windows release.


A user cannot enter anything into any edit boxes on task pane.


Our developers found a workaround and created new versions of add-ins that fix this issue.

What's next

The fact is that Microsoft publishes Office updates monthly. We suppose that the quality of these updates will become worse. So, it looks like we'll have to update our add-ins monthly too. Sorry :(
