The Document Information Panel (DIP) is deprecated in Office 2016 applications


Office 365 ProPlus is being renamed to Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise. For more information about this change, read this blog post.


The Document Information Panel (DIP) is deprecated in Microsoft Office 2016 applications. However, you can select FILE > Info > Show All Properties to view and edit document properties in the Properties section. Some document library property types, such as lookups, require additional SharePoint data and can't be edited directly in the Properties section. These properties are displayed together with a Show Details button. You can click Show Details to edit these properties in the metadata web dialog box. This dialog box is the same as the metadata web dialog box in the Microsoft SharePoint web user interface.


Missing required fields are enclosed by a red frame.
