Microsoft has for its Office 2016 for Mac suite that addresses multiple, fixes bugs and adds select new features across Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook. Version 15.8.0 allows Outlook to be used in full-screen mode for viewing multiple messages or invitations side by side. The update also makes it easier to find available Outlook conference rooms at your desired meeting time.
Outlook tries to load for my e-mail and then a white screen appears and it kicks back to desktop with a box pop that reads 'Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook Window' What.
In Word, PDF files can now be saved to flash drives. Meanwhile, Excel and PowerPoint have gained new selection panes to keep track of worksheet objects and slideshow objects respectively, and rearrange their placement and order. In OneNote, shapes can now be added to notebook pages and now support the built-in shapes gallery.
OneNote, Excel and PowerPoint all received general bug fixes. The free update is available from Microsoft AutoUpdate within Office 2016 for Mac, or the Microsoft Download Center, and requires OS X Yosemite 10.10 or later and a valid Office 365 subscription. On my 27 inch iMac? On my 13 inch MacBook Pro? Absolutely I use it, it adds a surprising amount of UI real estate. If I had an 11 inch MacBook Air?
It would be invaluable. Vast majority of us have no need for it as it hides the dock and menu, ultimately making multitasking a pain in the ass. It really is a redundant feature, one that is actually detrimental to getting things done quickly. Apple should just add an option in system settings to make the green button act as a 'maximize window' without going into fullscreen.
It'd satisfy everyone. It's funny because nobody uses fullscreen. Every application I use is in full-screen. Notification Center keeps me informed but I do all of my work in full screen except when I need to do work in multiple MS Excel windows. MBP Core i7 Retina w/ 24' Dell 4K UltraSharp display.
I'm reading this thread in full-screen. Running these apps all in full-screen: * Reeder * Mail * Slack * Messages * Safari * iCal * Excel * Outlook * Photos Bbedit and Deliveries and Lync are in Window mode Photos: You can make a generalization that 'Fullscreen is used by very few people' but saying 'nobody users it' is technically incorrect. There are dozens of us!:) =============== The more important feature Microsoft Office has yet to adopt is Multi-Core support for more than 2 cores. The average file-size of my MS Excel documents is 50 megabytes. Some of them are 80MB. The fact that I have a beach-ball w/ only 2 of my 8 cores used(Core i7 Quad-Core and Hyperthreading) and my computer isn't even breaking a sweat yet MS Office is costing me valuable time.it's embarrassing.
It sometimes takes 60 seconds to render some operations and the CPU could take on more tasks if Office would adopt Grand Central and Full Cocoa.
• Look closely at the crosshair as you make the selection box to see the height and width in pixels. To make a perfect square, for example, you want these two numbers to be the same. • To screenshot a particular window without worrying about pixels at all, press Space right after you see the crosshair appear. Then, just click the window you want to screenshot, and the image that saves will include only that window. • Press Space before you finish making the selection box to allow the box to be moved. That way, you can get the dimensions you want, but then you can move the box to the specific place where you want the screenshot to be taken. • If you hold down Shift before finishing the selection box, you can also move the screenshot, but it will be restricted to moving horizontally only.
• You can take a timed screenshot in Mojave if you want the screenshot to take place a few seconds from now. Perhaps what you want to screenshot can only be activated with the same keystroke for a screenshot (in other words, activating a regular screenshot would interrupt the action). You can do a timed screenshot through Command+Shift+5: click Options when you see it, and then choose a timer option. For High Sierra and older versions of Mac, open Grab and go to Capture > Timed Screen, and then click Start Timer.
