It is not usual for Mac users to use Office on their computers. The reason is that by default they have the Apple alternative: Pages, Keynote and Numbers are the equivalent of Word, Excel and PowerPoint and offer good performance. However, the influence of Office is enormous, due to its popularity and the effort of Microsoft to extend it to other platforms.
In macOS we currently have Office in the 2016 version and now users of the Apple operating system can access the previous version of Office 2019. It is the first opportunity to check the improvements that Office 2019 introduces on the Mac.
Office 2019 includes, as expected, Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote and with version 2019 some interesting improvements and new features are included. Improvements that Windows users belonging to the program of the preview version can also try.
In Word for example, more tools have been added inside the pens, highlighters and customizable tapes together with the always necessary accessibility improvements: an improved translation tool and an extension mode have been included to see the content better.
In the case of PowerPoint, the option of exporting the presentations in 4K video resolution has been added, something fundamental now that more and more monitors are betting on this type of resolution. In addition, morph transitions are now included.
In the case of Excel, 2D maps, new graphs and additional functions are now included. Outlook on the other hand will be improved with the arrival of a unified inbox, templates and read and delivery notices.
