Office for Mac 2011 gets Retina display support

updated 03:40 pm EDT, Wed September 19, 2012

Version 14.2.4 should push out through AutoUpdate

The most recent update for Office for Mac 2011 brings the software into full compatibility with the Retina display featured on some of Apple's newer notebooks. The update was announced today in a post on the Office for Mac blog. If users have enabled Microsoft AutoUpdate, the update to version 14.2.4 should trigger automatically.

Users that don't have AutoUpdate enabled can open any Office for Mac program, click Help from the menu bar, and then select Check for Updates. They will then be given the option to update manually or to enable AutoUpdate.

The Retina update may prove to be one of the last major updates for the Office for Mac suite. Microsoft announced earlier this year that there would be no Mac version of Office 2013. Instead, when the new version of Office launches, Office for Mac 2011 will receive a software update bringing tighter integration with SkyDrive and Office 364.

    What about Office 365? I've never heard of "Office 364".

    Widely reported Text wrap issue STILL unresolved.

    Incompetent developers at Microsoft?

    Indifference on the business side (gotta increase profits!)?

    Or just lazy management structure (time for a shake down)?
