Enterprise Applications: Word 2011 for Mac Gets It Right
Word 2011 for Mac provides a range of styling and design tools that make it suitable for all but the most demanding layout tasks. The new Dynamic Reordering feature offers a 3D view of the objects in a page and permits users to quickly reorder them as desired. Equation editing tools are also included for the first time in Word for Mac, making it possible to represent mathematical formulas easily and accurately. Word 2011 allows users to apply effects to text without compromising the ability to edit even the most sparkly of elements, and these effects can be applied as part of styles in lists, paragraphs and tables. Visual style designations enhance a user's control over document appearance, and the new QuickStyles feature allows for commonly used styles to be easily applied as part of a document template. Merge and comparison features are vastly improved in Word 2011, as well, and SharePoint servers and the Microsoft SkyDrive service are now supported as document repositories.
