Microsoft on Thursday officially released its Office 2016 Mac preview. It’s a free download that’s available for testing until Microsoft launches the full version sometime during the second half of this year.
The heart of Office 2016 is the cloud, Microsoft said, where you’ll easily be able to save and pull documents from OneDrive and SharePoint. You’ll find brand new versions of OneNote, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook are available, and Microsoft says the experience has been “modernized” with a new menu ribbon, a redesigned taskbar and different themes and styles.
Word has plenty of new features, including threaded comments, new layout management tool and a navigation pane that should make it easier to format a document so it looks exactly the way you want it to. Excel features functions that were originally available only in Excel 2013 for Windows, a new ToolPak with even more functions, keyboard shortcuts for formulas and more. PowerPoint has a new “Presenter View” for controlling your presentation, fresh transitions and new animations, Microsoft explained. Outlook has a redesigned conversation view for viewing e-mails in an easy-to-read thread, and a “new message preview,” function.
