Microsoft Office 2019 for Mac previews improved inking features and more

That's why it's taking things slow: the redesigned version is making its way to Word on Office.com today, and then to Outlook for select Insiders in July. The roaming pencil case also makes its way to Powerpoint as well, besides the new update will bring the ability to insert and manage icons, SVG, and 3D models on board.

Microsoft today highlighted some upcoming changes for the Office 365 user interface. While two are relatively minor and focus on visuals and efficiency, there's one major change that even Microsoft knows it needs to tread carefully with.

Microsoft's not sure it has this right and has acknowledged that lots of users have "muscle memory" for the current Ribbon, so the three-line version will only ever be a click away.

As Massive Storm Rages on Mars, Opportunity Rover Falls Silent
And while there's a chance the hardest-working rover on Mars won't make it through the storm, scientists are still hopeful. Back in 2007 , a much larger storm covered the planet, which led to two weeks of minimal operations and no communications.


This Fluent update brings a simplified ribbon to Office that contains new icons and colors that make it easy to use while working. The new icons are all vector graphics, so they can be scaled and resized while retaining their clean, crisp lines. Gradually rolling out over the next few months, users should first expect to see enhancements to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook.

Microsoft has revealed a plan for a slow-moving upgrade of its Office suite's user interface, with three new elements to start appearing at Office.com and in Office apps in coming months.

Microsoft also explained in its blog, "Office 2019 for Mac also includes features for IT that will help simplify deployment and management". Fans of the classic design will be able to expand it back to the larger ribbon if they choose.

Nike 'should apologise for arrogant statement' - Iran's Carlos Queiroz
Iran's first match is on Saturday against Morocco. "We know their team very well but I suspect they know very little about us". That run includes 22 matches and even saw Iran as the first team to qualify for Russian Federation .


Finally, Microsoft is turning Search into a more powerful tool. These features are already included in Office 365 ProPlus but are not available in Office for Mac 2016.

Before users type a query into Outlook's search box, for example, the application will offer recommendations generated by artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and Microsoft Graph, a collection of APIs that deliver contextual information to users based on employee information and content stored across Microsoft's business software and cloud offerings. The updates will be exclusive to on Office.com and Office 365 and won't happen all at once, but instead tested in stages. Microsoft is rolling out new features in waves so it can collect feedback and improve Office slowly, which is definitely a good idea given the reaction to some of the changes it's previously implemented.

How will the end of net neutrality affect you?
Net neutrality , which once required internet service providers to treat all online content the same, is now gone starting Monday. But unlike with the issues of blocking or slowing access to internet services, they've been much less definitive on fast lanes.
