What’s New in Office for Mac?
    1. Universal versions of the most popular productivity applications on the Macintosh platform
       (Universal applications run natively on Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs.)
    2. Microsoft Office for Mac natively supports the Open XML file formats for compatibility
       with Windows-based 2007 Microsoft Office products.
    3. A redesigned user interface and powerful new tools for simplifying work, creating great
       looking documents, and exchanging ideas and information with others.
Highlights of Office 2008 for Mac
   Office 2008 is a Universal Binary, was built by Mac users for Mac users, and includes many
    features which take advantage of underlying technologies of the Macintosh platform.
   Office 2008 uses Open XML file formats for compatibility with Windows-based 2007
    Microsoft Office products. XML file formats help reduce the risk of lost information due to
    damaged or corrupted files and also result in smaller file sizes—up to 75 percent smaller than
    comparable binary documents. Office 2008 for Mac is backward-compatible with earlier file
    formats and users can continue to use the older .doc, .xls, and .ppt binary formats.
   Elements Gallery is the foundation of the new user interface, and gives easy access to the most
    commonly used tools and templates. With the new UI, you’ll harness the capabilities of Office
    for Mac more easily than ever before.
   Office 2008 includes OfficeArt, the powerful graphics engine also used in the Windows-based

    visual and graphic effects.
   Your words will make an impact with the modern styling of SmartArt graphics, which makes
    transforming text and bulleted lists into professional diagrams and graphics one-click easy.
   A new Themes capability simplifies the process of applying a consistent look and feel across
    documents. Easily apply a complete set of colors, fonts, and effects to your Office 2008
    documents, and change them as easily as changing your mind.
   Automator Actions for Workflows in Microsoft Office enables you to automate Office 2008
    with more than 70 pre-defined actions built to simplify your work and extend your productivity.
    (Available in Office 2008 for Mac and Office 2008 for Mac Special Media Edition.)
