Office X for Macintosh: The Missing Manual (Missing Manuals)by Nan Barber
Synopses & Reviews
Mac OS X, Apple's super-advanced, Unix-based operating system, offers every desirable system-software feature known to humans. But without a compatible software library, the Mac of the future was doomed.Microsoft Office X for Macintosh is exactly the software suite most Mac fans were waiting for. Its four programs--Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Entourage--have been completely overhauled to take advantage of the stunning looks and rock-like stability of Mac OS X. But this magnificent package comes without a single page of printed instructions.Fortunately, Pogue Press/O'Reilly is once again there to rescue the befuddled and overwhelmed--with Office X for Macintosh: The Missing Manual. It tackles each of the primary Office applications with depth, humor, and clarity, and provides relief for the hapless Mac user who'd rather read professionally written printed instructions than hunt through a maze of dryly written help screens.Office X for Macintosh: The Missing Manual is coauthored by a dream team of Macintosh experts: Tonya Engst, coeditor of the popular TidBITS Macintosh newsletter; David Reynolds, former executive editor of MacAddict magazine (now working at Apple); and Nan Barber, Macworld contributor and coauthor of Office 2001 for Macintosh: The Missing Manual, on which this book is based. Once again, the authors are joined by series founder David Pogue, who has closely edited the book to ensure excellence of depth, accuracy, and prose.
This guide covers the number one bestselling Mac software, with dominant word processor and spreadsheet programs. This edition is completely revamped for Apple's new operating system with a steep learning curve for users upgrading from previous versions.
This manual tackles each of the primary office applications with depth, humor, and clarity, and offers relief for the hapless Mac user who'd rather read professionally written printed instructions than hunt through a maze of dryly written help screens.
