Office 2008 for Mac includes the same core programs currently included with Office 2004 for Mac: Entourage, Excel, PowerPoint and Word. Office 2008 for Mac doesn't revolutionize the application or the way users work - not in the way Office 2007 did for Windows users. It kept a lot of the old, beloved features, and slapped on a.

Untitled[edit]

I think the wiki article does a darned good job of laying out the extremely important deficits in Office for mac. I wish I'd read it before buying office for mac which is basically useless for me in every respect from crippled Excel, to amazingly crashy word (every minute on most templates!). I've switched to Fusion running office for Windows - so MS win this round. It's clear that MS have fired a shot across Apple's bows with this. Rather sad, and I'm afraid for MS that it gives Open Office a hell of a leg up. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.246.252.57 (talk) 06:53, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Criticism[edit]

Who complained about Office for Mac not having a Ribbon? From the screenshots, it looks like it has rather ribbonish UI elements. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.10.253.10 (talk) 07:52, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

compatibility??? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.101.77.131 (talk) 13:47, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

This criticism section is a joke. Too long, much of it irrelevant. Wikipedia is not a place to review software. And the fact that it doesn't have ribbon is not a valid criticism without explanation as too why the ribbon is better than the standard mac toolbar and who really gives a crap anyway.79.67.217.192 (talk) 13:24, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Also as stated on the Microsoft support site the picture issue has been resolved. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=11507298.114.49.74 (talk) 04:10, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

I strongly recommend anyone who'd like to take a stab at being more objective and more willing to find sources, add something about how this products interface is completely different than other Office products. I got it home and found that it was difficult to navigate. It appears as tho the old Microsoft software engineering principals of at least three ways to do everything, with those ways taken from the most successful previous products including competitors, have been abandoned entirely? .. Or, perhaps Microsoft's success has become its own enemy, and the reason Office 2008 has a lot of the clumsiness of Open Office is that there is no competition to rip off anymore. and the reason its hard to use is that they finally dropped support for some previous, different competitors method of use? I don't know. what I do know is that I really, really, really don't like this product at all.

The other thing that really pisses me off is that the only thing that older versions of Excel had that wasn't supported in Open Office, was the VB support. With VB eliminated, MS Excel would have made files that Open Office would always be able to open. Except, they switched the entire default file format to something else entirely (xlsx) that doesn't work with anything, and even leaves many versions of Excel in the dark. (Likewise, there is no Wordpad for .docx .. and the plaintext isn't even visible in docx!). So, people are going to have to buy Excel 2008 for only one reason: Just to open and work with files sent to them by other people with Excel 2008. Too bad they won't be able to open and work with any of the files made by advanced users of Excel 2003, just like Excel 2008 can't open any of the spreadsheets I made in an engineering class a few years ago that used any VB at all. Oh well? Zaphraud (talk) 19:16, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

That about sums up Office 2008 for Mac.

There was a feeling of excitement at the CMP Channel Test Center when Office 2008 for Mac arrived in the mail. It installed easily, and visually, it was pretty. True to form, Office 2008 is packed with all kinds of engaging gadgets and useful tools. However, the changes to the core applications -- Word, Excel, and PowerPoint -- seemed to be more in aesthetics rather than in functionality.

Office 2003 for Mac was fairly equivalent in look and feel with Office 2003 for Windows. It may have been too nave to assume that Office 2008 for Mac would fill a similar spot for Office 2007 on Windows.

Many things stayed the same in Office 2008 from previous versions. It was reassuring to find the familiar menu bar at the top of the screen, with menus for File, Edit, View, Insert, etc. Everything was still in the right place. The floating palettes had all the toolbars, for formatting, for styles, alignment, margins, etc. However, the first question upon opening Word was, 'Where's the ribbon?' This is good news to those users who dislike the ribbon (and there is nothing wrong with not liking the ribbon). It was just odd that after redoing the entire look and feel on Word 2007, that Microsoft chose to leave out the ribbon in this version.

Not only is there no ribbon, there is no handy toolbar at the top with buttons for saving and basic editing tools. Oddly enough, Excel and PowerPoint has a basic toolbar on top of the window. Thankfully, there aren't many of these jarring discontinuities.

For

Mac Office 2008

Overall, the integration of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint is seamless and well done. In one test, a chart was inserted in a Word document and data entered into an Excel spreadsheet, without even realizing that the spreadsheet was open in Excel. In this case, the applications behaved similarly to Office 2007.

Uninstall Office 2008 For Mac

In the past, it didn't matter whether Office was on a PC or Mac -- things were generally in the same places and behaved similarly. That's no longer the case. Solution providers planning to shift Windows customers to the Mac may have to reconsider, based on whether this is considered a showstopper. Office 2008, especially Word, is sufficiently different enough from Office 2007 on Windows that users will spend time just trying to figure things out.

It was difficult to find many of the commands. The Formatting Palette is a bit crowded with all the various options so it takes a while to find the familiar buttons. However, going in to Customize Toolbars and un-clicking the 'Dock' option for each toolbar releases them from the Formatting Palette to float anywhere on the screen. They can then be dragged to the top of the window to mimic the old toolbars from the past.

Customize, customize, customize. The level of customization available is pleasant. Not only could the palettes be split up to create the static toolbars, there was a way to modify the menu bars. Under Customize Toolbars, users can select various commands and just drag them onto the main menu bar at the top. Perhaps the user needs to have the Word Count command appear under the File menu instead of the traditional Tools menu. Users can just drag the command off Tools and onto File. Or have the alignment options available as a top-level command in Format instead of buried under 'Paragraph' -- it's just a click and drag away. Users can also create their own toolbar, with their own set of commands onto a toolbar that floats anywhere on the screen. It can even be dragged to the top of the screen to make the toolbar/ribbon that's missing.

Documents moved back and forth between Mac and Windows without trouble, so a mixed office can continue to function this way. Just as Windows users had to get used to a lot of new things with Office 2007, Mac users are due for their retraining.

There is one new feature that is tough to decide whether or not it is any good: the Elements Gallery. The gallery sits on top of the window, and has four (Excel), five (Word), or six (PowerPoint) tabs with advanced formatting options. In PowerPoint, the Elements Gallery is split into categories such as slide themes, slide layouts, transitions, and table layouts. Once a tab is selected, a gallery opens up, with graphical representations of options. Under slide layouts, there are images of the various layouts available -- selecting on one changes the active slide to that format. This is very convenient and much easier than previous methods. However, in Word, the options are document elements, such as table of contents, headers, and footers, quick tables and charts, and WordArt. The area could have been devoted to better use.

Office 2008 for Mac doesn't revolutionize the application or the way users work -- not in the way Office 2007 did for Windows users. It kept a lot of the old, beloved features, and slapped on a slick interface. The level of customization allowed saves this product from just being eye candy.
