Microsoft on August 18th released another video highlighting new ways that Office 2011 for Mac users will be able to work with; “What we’ve been able to do in Office for Mac 2011 is to bring a lot of power to bear to produce a professional looking document that’s still compatible with Office for Windows,” said Kurt Schmucker, of Microsoft’s Macintosh Business Unit.
“He said to ensure consistency between Word for Windows and Word for Mac. Office for Mac 2011 will feature Excel Sparklines, which allow users to turn large amounts of data into a quick visual summary using tiny charts that fit within a cell near its corresponding values. Office for Mac will also allow users to do basic photo editing tasks within Word, Excel and PowerPoint 2011. Also improved in this year’s update is PivotTables for Excel.”
