Microsoft Office users on OS X may not get the new Office 2013 that was released for Windows Tuesday, but the Redmond-based company has at least released an update with important bug fixes for the existing retail and subscription users of the Office for Mac 2011 productivity suite. The update, version 14.3 (a.k.a. "Service Pack 3"), addresses a pesky bug with non-Exchange calendars in Outlook, along with several fixes for PowerPoint.
This update provides the latest fixes to Office for Mac 2011. These include the following:
