Word blank document starts to be a dotx file instead of docx file
Add support for color theme in VSTO document updater in word

Add color theme applier plugin in VSTO
With this release we have introduced support for setting and updating color themes in power point presentations using dynamics. This feature works the same as it previously did in Templafy One.
Improve performance of Document Opener rules
When a blank document is created or a new document is created via Composer opening rules were applied.
This release optimizes them.
Word document is only opened once internally instead of twice when opening rules are applied.
Command keymaps restoration is not applied to document created from dotx templates because for dotx files Word handles everything by itself.
Rule for restoring correct document author was fixed to account not only Templafy One transformation but the Templafy Hive transformation as well.
It also reads less metadata to work.

Add RanorexTests to DesignWordTemplate, CreateWordDocument, UpdateWordDocument
VSTO version 7.X doesn't work with Templafy One if authentication method or url is not set
There were an issue with using VSTO add-ins version 7.x with Templafy One when not using Authentication Method or Authentication URL, where the add-in would crash when starting. This has now been fixed so the add-in will work correctly.
Update WebView2 nuget package in VSTO
Updated WebView2 SDK package to the latest stable version.
Fix error in Outlook when opening task pane in 2016
There was an error being thrown in Outlook 2016 that would make opening the task pane fail. The fix was to have an alternative code path for version 2016 of Office that allows for the task pane to open.
Composer block does not show in backstage
Templafy current implementation of Composer in Office Backstage is only compatible with Office2019 and Office365, but it won't work with Office2016 since the structure of the Backstage is different: there is no Home Tab where we can add Composer.
We have solved this problem creating a custom version of our Backstage that only applies for users with Office2016. In this version we hide the TabOfficeStart and we add Composer to the Open (ID: TabRecent) section. We have included a new Tab called MS Themes that users can use to create a new un-branded document.
Operation fails when trying to insert an asset in outlook
Fixed an issue where inserting a pdf in Outlook, in any type of item other than an e-mail (e.g. appointment or meeting) would fail. The issue was an exception thrown by the application when adding the attachment, due to a bug in the code.
Update Binding nuget in VSTO
Upgrade Dynamics nuget package in VSTO to support new DocumentNameTransformationConfiguration
Slides won't insert
When an invalid slide was being inserted but failed to complete the Add-ins would fail silently. Now a message will be displayed to the user that the slide failed to be inserted and the error will be logged.
Update VSTO add-ins to serve DynamicsElement endpoints
With this release, the Dynamics team is able to interact better with the Word document, like updating and deleting content controls or jumping to them.
