Just an FYI for those of you running Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 - the last version available before Office 365 was introduced and for some time the only version available without moving to their 365 subscription model.

I've just updated to the latest patch and after launching Word for the first time afterwards a banner popped up...

I believe MS do now offer a full outright Office 365 licence for around £120 if you don't want to do down the subscription route, and for now Office 2011 seems to work OK on my system (10.10), but at some point when it does break you'll have to fork out one way or another. Not sure how it runs on High Sierra?

Anyway, just a heads up.

I'm currently running MSOffice2011 [well, at least Excel and Word - Word says: Version 14.7.3 (170325)] under High Sierra 10.13.1. No issues so far. :)

There are incompatiblity issues between MS Office and Apple ‘Office’ which is why people need MS Office.

Not all satisfactory though. I get sent excel docs from work which won't open properly in numbers due to text in some cells being rotated 90º. Numbers doesn't do rotated text.

Numbers DOES do rotated text, just not in cells - which isn't very helpful I admit!

And the solution is to tell work to use Numbers too. They should have no problem with that...

Yes, numbers can to rotated text in a text box but not in a cell. It will also rotate text for axis title on a chart.

Getting work to use numbers just isn't going to happen. IT department wouldn't allow it, be like turkeys voting for christmas :lol: Some of the spread sheets just aren't practical without rotating text in some cells.
