The transparent background image can be very useful in spreadsheets, slides and documents, especially when they need to be positioned over other files. In addition to identifying content that is in the background, the Office tool also includes a feature to draw lines and refine the area that should be removed.
The function is available for Excel, Microsoft Project Online, Outlook, PowerPoint and Word. All versions from 2010 of the respective applications on macOS and Windows have the tool to make the background transparent.
