Microsoft Office 2019 for Mac previews improved inking features and more

Microsoft Office 2019 for Mac previews improved inking features and more”

The new icons are meant to render more crisply and cleanly on screens of any size and to look better for those with vision impairments.now there are more than 10,000 different icons in Office, Friedman noted, and Microsoft wanted to make them more consistent and accessible from the get-go, using color, contrast and other design elements. These will first appear in in the web version of Word for Office.com, and then roll out in later this month to the Insider versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for Windows.

Microsoft has a new redesign coming up for Office 365 users. Essentially, this ensures that icons have smooth lines and render correctly regardless of the display you view them on.

A full rollout to all billion-plus Office users will take time. Included in the ribbon will be new collaborative controls that allow you to see small avatars of others who are working with you on the document, the ability to easily share the documents, and access to the comments pane. It also comes with a word translator, improved inking functionality, customisable Office ribbons, and overall accessibility improvements. Microsoft will monitor the usage of these new features and will listen to feedback from users.

A quick glance at the new Ribbon reveals them to indeed be easier on the eyes. If you don't like it, you can still expand the ribbon to its former size. But perhaps the new space-saving design will make this a moot point. New features include the roaming pencil case and ribbon customisations across Office apps. This is clearly the case on the Office.com landing page, where the app buttons use shadow and depth to highlight what's under the mouse, but I didn't see any Fluent influence in screenshots and videos of the actual program windows, aside from animations that happen when you hover the mouse over top menus. And simply tapping in the search box will pop up suggestions based on Microsoft's AI. It doesn't have a schedule for the rest of the Office apps just yet.

The most recent version of Office is Microsoft Office 2016, which was actually released in 2015.

This new design is being rolled out gradually, with the new interface coming today for Word users on Office.com Later this month, a test group of Office Insiders will will see them in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for Windows. In addition, there are features in Office 365 ProPlus that aren't in Office 2019 for Mac.
