The new Project Center.


A handy Toolbox.
Work with Tools That Work Like You
The new features in Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac aren't constrained by boundaries--in fact, many of them are designed to give you access to your ideas and information from every program in the suite. Thanks to input from thousands of Mac users, Office 2004 contains tools that are more integrated and intuitive than ever. The new Project Center allows you to consolidate all of your project-related details and easily access them from Word, Excel, Entourage, and PowerPoint 2004. Quickly view all of your project-related e-mail messages, files, notes, contacts and schedules in one convenient place. Plus, the new Project Gallery lets you quickly find the documents you've worked on recently while offering the new Learn tab to find instructive sample documents. Meanwhile, the new Compatibility Report tool helps you resolve platform- and version-related compatibility issues before they arise. The tool identifies potential compatibility issues and offers ways to avoid them. Lastly, the Office Toolbox lets you quickly access compatibility Reports, your Scrapbook and the Project Palette from Word, Excel or PowerPoint 2004.



Notebook layout view.


Improved Track Changes functionality.
Word 2004
Express your ideas with more brilliance and clarity using the innovative new tools in Microsoft Word 2004 for Mac. The gold standard in word processing works harder than ever for you with improved reference tools, dynamic reviewing capabilities and enhanced views for organizing your thoughts. The new notebook layout view allows you to type right onto ruled notebook "paper." Manage different sections with tabs and quickly search for key ideas using this new view. Plus, with the improved track changes system in Word 2004, you can view changes in comment balloons next to your text, quickly identify the reviewer with color-coded comments and initiate instant message conversations about comments with MSN Messenger for Mac. Access a dictionary, a thesaurus and a link to the Microsoft Encarta online encyclopedia right from the Office Toolbox, or quickly scan and navigate through your document with the improved document map and thumbnail view.





New page layout view.


Major charting improvements.
Excel 2004
Organize, analyze and present your data with precision and panache. The new tools in Microsoft Excel 2004 for Mac give you more control over your spreadsheets, and the enhanced charting tools give you more dynamic ways to display your information. The new page layout view lets you review and manipulate on screen what will appear on paper. Now you can easily scale your data to fit the right number of pages, and insert headers and footers by simply double-clicking in the document. Meanwhile, punch up your numbers with vibrant new color schemes. Use the Formatting Palette to quickly update your chart type, options, data, colors, weights, fills and special effects. Smart buttons let you instantly track down and fix spreadsheet formula errors, control how the AutoFill feature applies formatting to your data, and more. And editing and functioning improvements mean that you can view the correct syntax for more than 140 functions to ensure that calculations work every time. You can also now simply click and drag to change ranges with the updated Range Finder. Lastly XML file support is integrated in Excel 2004, so you can share complex data with ease.




Handy new presenter tools.

You can also experiment with new 3D transitions and vivid custom animations to make your presentations richer and more dynamic. Choose from more that 100 new design templates and quickly set font spacing, size and transparency with the new Format Font dialog box. Plus, the expanded clip gallery helps you get creative with updated illustrations and new clip art.





Efficient new three-column view.


Robust management of accounts and contacts.
Entourage 2004
If your day revolves around connections and ideas, use Microsoft Entourage 2004 for Mac to pull it all together. Consolidate your e-mail, contacts, calendar, notes and project details in one easy-to-access place. The new three column view option lets you blaze through your inbox with new features such as the preview pane, message threading and improved junk e-mail protection. With new Message Grouping you can easily group, view and search for messages based on project, sender, date or other criteria. Calendar printing has been improved, too and now you can experience more flexibility and control over calendar formatting and printing options. Meanwhile, managing accounts and contacts has never been easier: Access messages and contacts from multiple e-mail accounts and take advantage of integration with MSN Messenger for Mac version 4.0. And now, for the first time ever, Entourage features Exchange server support, so you can easily integrate Macs with an Exchange email system. Another great feature, archiving, allows you to export personal information manager (PIM) data--such as e-mail messages, contacts or schedules--into an Entourage archive package to keep your PIM database clean and secure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Both Worlds February 17, 2004
Let's face it, no matter how much you love your Mac there are times when you might find yourself wishing it was a PC so you could send a Word file to your PC using friend (who doesn't understand the joys of PDF). Well Microsoft, never being one to miss an opportunity, has delivered the full Office Suite for Mac and designed it to take complete advantage of OS X. What that translates into is simply the best Office Suite experience anyone can have.
All the apps (Word; Excel; PowerPoint; Entourage) are included unencumbered and many have features and enhancements that can ONLY be found on the Mac. Excel features customized keyboard shortcuts and the ability to create transparent charts. Word now features easy one button access to all your contacts in Entourage as well as the handy Data Merge Manager. PowerPoint now allows movies and features full compatibility with QuickTime. The layout and feel of Entourage is much improved over it's PC counterpoint Outlook.
At first Microsoft had said that this Student & Teacher version was non-upgradeable(The only difference between this and the more pricey Standard Edition), but they have since changed their minds to allow upgrades as long as you buy before the new version is released. You even get a three computer license! Finally, here's the proof that Microsoft can be generous when it wants to.
I've had this suite for many months now and have never loved using these apps more. Sending and receiving Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents is a breeze and I've never once had an issue opening a document sent from a PC user. Beyond the functionality, I love the way all these Microsoft apps look like part of OS X in full Aqua glory. If you need to communicate with PC users or simply want the best of both worlds, you can't do any better than running Microsoft Office v.X Student & Teacher edition on a Mac.

I recently threw out my virus-infected PC and bought an Apple Powerbook. I was concerned that the switch would limit what I can and cannot do with my computer, but Microsoft Office for Mac has made the transition much easier, as I have been a Microsoft Office user for years. The Mac version runs much smoother than the Windows version, (as does the entire computer.) No problems with lock-ups, no lost data, and the Mac version seems much easier to use than my Windows version. Very straightforward, yet powerful enough for a full range of use, from simple to very complex.

So, for anyone out there thinking of making the switch from PC to Mac, do yourself a favor: get Microsoft Office for the Mac.

3.0 out of 5 stars My Mac didn't use to crash November 8, 2004
I moved to Mac after more than a decade of PC use because I was sick of getting "application not responding" messages. In 9 months of owning my iBook, I think I had one message of this sort, that is until I installed Office for Mac. Welcome back to Microsoft!

Don't get me wrong, the applications are well designed and presently there is no other office suite that can compete. They look great and aside from a few weird functionality issues I have been happy with Office. But just like Windows, these programs crash all the time. At least once a week Word or Entourage will simply freeze. At lot of times this happens when I am cutting and pasting between the two.

Anyway, be forewarned, if you are a Mac zealot, you might enjoy Office but be prepared to be even madder at Microsoft.

2.0 out of 5 stars Office X ran faster and had fewer bugs! November 15, 2004
I bought Office 2004 for the Mac as an upgrade to Office X, even though I was not really having any problems with the older version. Office 2004 has been nothing but problems. Excel and Word crash more frequently. There are random but frequent hard drive accesses for no apparent reason. There are problems with removing password protection of Excel files. Worst of all are the font-related bugs in Word that are even worse in Excel. Excel 2004 screws up the letter spacing of fonts as well as line spacing for wrapped text. Everything is bigger by 10-30%. This doesn't seem to be a problem at first, especially if you are only entering single words or short strings into individual cells. However, I have dozens of forms that were laid out in Excel X that include wrapped text in merged cells. If I open these documents in Excel 2004, the font spacing is all screwed up, requiring complete readjustment of each form. Even worse, Excel 2004 is not WYSIWYG. The screen layout isn't the same as what gets printed. I find this wholly unacceptable for a major business suite, especially when it worked OK in the previous version. Don't be fooled by Microsoft's promise of bug fixes in their recently released Service Pack 1 for Office 2004. They may have fixed a few bugs but not the major ones I have issues with. Check out the comments by users at Macintouch.com, under Office 2004. As for me, I intend to uninstall Office 2004 if possible and reinstall Office X.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Upgrade May 23, 2004
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy bashing Microsoft with the best of them, and I think most "upgrades" from Redmond are a waste of money at this point, but Office 2004 for the Mac is not one of those cases.
It is simply a must have upgrade.
What I love about the new upgrade:
1. Long file names
2. Better change/edit management
3. Lots of new features in PowerPoint (although Keynote still looks better displayed)
4. Much cleaner interface
I'll give credit where credit is due. This is a fantastic update, one I am glad I paid for.
Only one beef, to be balanced, is MS should work on speeding up the apps in the .1 release.
