Microsoft’s Office for Mac has announced that Office for Mac 2011 (version 14.2.4) now supports Apple’s Retina display for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, displaying incredibly crisp text rendering and all key areas of the interface now sharper than ever.
As long as you have Microsoft AutoUpdate set to check for software updates automatically, you’ll be notified when this update is available.
Microsoft AutoUpdate can keep your copy of Office for Mac updated by prompting you when the next update is available. To check your AutoUpdate settings, open any Office for Mac program, click Help from the menu bar, then select Check for Updates. You can choose to update Manually or Automatically on the schedule of your choice.
The Office for Mac Product Team also notes that a small number of users have had difficulty updating to Office 14.2.4, and they’ve been working with Apple to resolve the problem and will follow up with an update in the near future.
In the meantime, if you’d like to get Retina support for Office for Mac 2011 running sooner, they’ve prepared an instructional video that walks you through a few simple steps to get the update working today; otherwise, please wait for the upcoming update.
