Office for Mac 2011: Issues with Lion
Article by George Norman
On 23 Jul 2011
The good news is that Apple has recently rolled out the eight major version of the Mac OS X, mainly Mac OS X 10.7 Lion to the masses. The bad news is that Office for Mac 2011 has a couple of major issues with the recently released operating system.

Lion comes with 250 new features, among them a completely redesigned Mail app. The first issue is related to the new Mail app. The Office for Mac team explained that Office for Mac 2011 doesn’t play well with the app; and more to the point, Outlook can’t import mail from Apple Mail. “We’re reviewing this and don’t yet have a plan to fix it. However, if your mail is already in Outlook, then this issue won’t affect you,” commented the Office for Mac team.

There is another major inconvenient: when you send an instant message or start and audio/visual call on Lion, Communicator for Mac crashes. The Office for Mac team explained that a fix for this issue will be released in a future Communicator for Mac update. The Office for Mac team pointed out that “many users may never use Communicator, because it’s a corporate product, and not included with the mainline Office products.”

In related news, Mac OS X Lion has already been downloaded more than 1 million times. Apple announced that it recorded more than 1 million downloads in the first day following the release of Lion. Lion is available for download from the Mac App Store for the price of $29.99. Users who do not want to download it from home (because they don’t have broadband internet or for some other reason) can download Lion from an Apple Store. Alternatively they can wait until later this August when Apple will market Lion an a USB drive for $69.99.
