Improves language detection, complex object handling, Outlook accounts
On Wednesday, Microsoft updated its standalone version of Office for Mac, Office 2011, to version 14.4.4. The update provides the latest fixes for Office, and includes general functionality improvements in Microsoft Word, particularly with keyboard language detection. For PowerPoint, it improves handling of certain complex objects, and in Outlook the update includes new descriptions for supported account types.
Fixed is an issue that caused the keyboard language to be updated incorrectly in Word, as well as a problem that caused slides in PowerPoint which contained objects such as 3D charts to periodically display random artifacts in Presenter View mode on monitors with very high resolution, such as 4K TVs or monitors. The updated descriptions in Outlook include information on the choices you can make when users configure an Office 365 account.
To install the latest update, users must already be running at least version 14.1.0 of Office, on a Mac running at least OS X 10.5.8 or higher. The new version can be downloaded here.
