Upgrade Word for Mac to create even more advanced, professional documents

Product Information

[Upgrade version - see below for eligibility requirements.]

Microsoft Word for Mac 2008 lets you take artistic control in your documents with media-rich layouts, templates, and themes you can use to create great-looking newsletters, brochures, reports, and more.  Document Elements make it easy to add necessary but time-consuming features like a table of contents or bibliography to your document while the improved Notebook Layout View helps you organize your work space and word files.  In addition, the the Publishing Layout View lets you turn your ideas into layout-rich documents without an advanced Desktop Publishing System.

Upgrade Requirements - Software will only install if you are a licensed user of one of the following:
  • Microsoft Office 98 Macintosh Edition
  • Microsoft Word 98 Macintosh Edition
  • Any Microsoft Office for Mac 2001-2004 suite
  • Any Microsoft Office for Mac 2001-2004 application

New and Improved

  • Create Professional-Looking Documents - Word 2008 helps produce professional-looking documents by providing a comprehensive set of tools, such as publishing layout view, new publishing templates, and ligatures in fonts, for creating and formatting documents.
  • Document Elements (for word processing) - This feature can help automate common, but sometimes time-consuming tasks.  Available in the Elements Gallery, these professionally designed publishing components include cover pages, tables of contents, headers, footers, and bibliographies to help users quickly assemble complex documents.
  • Publishing Layout View (for layout-rich documents) - This new specialized environment in Word 2008 combines powerful desktop publishing tools and designer templates in one location.  Users can use publishing layout view to quickly create professional-looking documents that are traditionally created by using advanced Desktop Publishing  (DTP) applications.
  • Use Improved Notebook Layout View - Word 2008 introduces significant enhancements to notebook layout view.  In Word 2008, users can customize and personalize notebook documents with different appearances and backgrounds.  Notebook tabs now support colors for improved categorization of notes, and can be dragged across different Word notebook documents.  The audio recording preferences for notebook layout now offer easier customization.
  • Use Improved Mail Merge - The new streamlined Mail Merge Manager in Word 2008 combines information from a data source with information in a Word document so that users don't have to create multiple versions of the document by hand.  Performing mail merges by integrating Word documents, emails, forms, and contacts is simple and much faster than the manual alternative.

Product Features
  • Document Elements - Document Elements like on-click cover pages and bibliographies give you easy access to the essential building blocks of great-looking documents.
  • Improved Notebook Layout View - Note taking is simplified and improved with the improved Notebook Layout View.  Get organized with color-coded tabs, customize your work space, and review easily with time-stamp audio notes.
  • Publishing Layout View - Professional quality newsletters, brochures, and flyers are now within reach.  Uncover a new set of powerful desktop publishing tools and templates with Publishing Layout View
