After Mac OS X Lion was released weeks ago, you may have found that it’s really an amazing upgrade for Mac OS X. The new features are great. Multi-touch gestures make the use of Mac just like a convenient mouse; discovering apps for your Mac is much easier with the newly added Mac App Store on Mac OS X Lion; resume function lets you reopen right where you left off, so you never have to start from scratch again; etc. As Apple said, over 250 new features are added in Lion. Let’s take ease to find every new feature’s advantage. However, when you are enjoying the funny that Lion brings, there are some disturbed problems ensued: you’ll find many software can’t be supported by Lion new features, and Microsoft’s Office suite for Mac is one.
Good news is that Microsoft has confirmed that they are busily working away at integrating the Office suite with new Lion.
The new features will be integrated for the latest Office for Mac 2011 and will include Auto Save, Versions, and Full-Screen mode. However, don’t expect the update to come tomorrow or even in the next few weeks. Instead, Microsoft Office team member Pat Fox confirmed that the wait for the update will more likely be “measured in months.”
If you use Microsoft’s Communicator for Mac, however, you can get an update for that immediately to solve the crashing issues it has in Lion. The update can be downloaded via Microsoft’s AutoUpdate system or through their Download Center.
