Microsoft has released a preview of its September feature update for Office 2016 for Mac, making it available to those enrolled in the Office Insider Slow ring.
The update bumps the version number up to 15.26 (160903), and brings the following new features:
- PowerPoint Designer: You supply the pictures, we'll supply high-quality, professional design ideas for your slides. (Feature requires an Office 365 subscription.)
- Color your guides: In PowerPoint, choose a color to make your guides stand out against the slide background. (Feature requires an Office 365 subscription.)
Focus mode: In Word, click View > Focus to hide the ribbon, panes, and status bar so you can focus solely on your content. (Feature requires an Office 365 subscription.)
Office 2016 for Mac users in the Insider Slow ring who have chosen to receive updates automatically will soon be prompted to install the new update, but you can force the update to come through manually via Help > Check for Updates > Check for Updates.
