If you're here, then you may already own Office:Mac 2008 and I'm sure thoughts will be mixed. The software is a package that ultimately had potential, but various attributes let it down such as, the fact that Microsoft tell you to update the programs every month with 'Critical Updates' to fix 'Vulnerability Issues'. When such is the case, why release a product thats updates equate to a larger size than the original installation?
Rest assured however that 2011 is a smoother ride. Whats more, its not even a 64bit package, but I think they can be forgiven on this front since 64bit technology only enhances software thats uses lots and lots of RAM. 2011 is a little lighter on this front. Upon working on each application for half and hour, the average memory sum was around 90mb, so I'm happy that Microsoft have done at least one thing right.
It doesn't stop there though, because the entire package has seen modernisation. The biggest change of all is the Ribbon interface - something that I completely despise on the Windows port of this software, yet on Office:Mac 2011, i'm seriously impressed. The Ribbon, although looking similar in features, is more accomplished on the Mac version since it labels more of the icons and makes the features more 'obvious'. One of the most idiotic aspects of Office for Windows is that the icons on the Ribbon are all too often completely ambiguous.
Whats more, the 'levels' on the Ribbon are denoted clearer, and they are completely customiseable - unlike on the Windows version, were only the 'block' of features could be swapped around.Read more ›
However, a number of issues continually occurred when documents were being sent backwards and forwards to colleagues. For instance, essential formatting was being lost.
I very reluctantly had to concede that for some specific work related tasks, Word for Mac was pretty well a necessity as a lot of time was being wasted trying to sort out the problems encountered.
It loaded from disc quite easily - although it took far longer than I anticipated.
It's not my intention to use Powerpoint or Excel as I'm very happy with the Apple software. Word will be used when required for work purposes and it does what is expected of it.
I previously worked with Word 2007 and this is obviously more up to date.
While it does have some useful tricks, I really do feel I have literally been dragged kicking and screaming back to using Microsoft software!
Surely there must be a way of seamlessly integrating documents for use on either system?
Perhaps if I had a bit more patience our IT guys would have worked through the problems and found a fix - but at the end of the day, time is money so it worked out more cost effective just to buy this.
It seems to work well and obviously serves its purpose so would gain five stars for that BUT I've reduced to four stars as I really do feel forced into buying it!
I do have a few niggles that stop me from liking it completely. First, and for me most importantly, there's no Mac version of Onenote. Onenote, if you haven't used it, is an application for making notes but you can drag pictures and links into the document from anywhere on your computer. And you can organise it into sections, then sub-sections so that all your work is neatly filed and easy to find. But there just isn't a Mac version. Word includes a very basic sort-of version (called "Notebook layout view,") where you can sort work into sections and take audio notes but there isn't that useful feature of being able to pull in other pieces of information. And that, for me, would be so unbelievable useful. Also if, like me, you get your internet through a proxy server (I do, because my university is effectively my ISP) the program that does the updates might not work. I've tried to find an answer to this and the closest I've got is that it's something to do with the port that the update manager needs. It works fine with a normal internet connexion just one not running through my uni's proxy server. I have exactly the same issue with another small program called "Document Connection," that allows you to upload files to Microsoft's SkyDrive. Again, works fine on a normal internet connexion.Read more ›
