Can we talk? We all know that in the past, Office for Mac hasn't necessarily played that well with Office for PC. On this episode of The Office Show, we'll show you how that's all changed with Office for Mac 2011.
You might not believe this, but around here we don't consider "Mac" to be a dirty word. We like Macs. We like people who use Macs. We want them to have great experiences with Office. But let's be honest, it's been a rough road. Especially when the Mac people spend a lot of time working on their docs and then send them to the PC people, and they end up looking like...well...insert your own metaphor.
In this Office Show, Dr. Office, aka Doug "Office Casual" Thomas, shows you how Office for Mac 2011 makes compatibility so much better. Docs made on Macs look great on PCs. And vice versa. Not that we really want to wade into that whole operating-system-as-personal-identification conflict thing, but we think this makes the argument a lot harder. Plus, Mac for Office experts Stephanie Brown and Kurt Schmucker show you some more cool features, like background removal, drag and drop page layout in Word, and reordering in PowerPoint, which lets you open up the layers in a presentation "like a sliced salami."
