Finally, Microsoft has released the Technical Refresh for Office 2007 and it is GREAT! They have fixed many of the bugs that I found which increases the usability tremendously.
One of the biggest bugs that I noticed they fixed was being able to change the properties of a chart. Before it was very difficult to change the axis intervals but all of that has been fixed.
Also, don’t forget that parts of the user interface have been updated for a more streamlined look. The most notable change is the lack of a ‘File’ menu and it was replaced with the Office logo. I haven’t experienced any crashing yet but there are many people experiencing frequent crashes.
This release includes Microsoft Access, Excel, InfoPath, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Word. Details on this release are as follows:
