DESCRIPTION
This month (July 2016) OneNote on the Mac is finally catching up to some of the features long-enjoyed by Windows users of OneNote: 

  • OneNote Web Clipper
  • Preview
  • YouTube and Vimeo Support
  • Highlight text
  • Clip multiple regions in one go
  • Use your own title
  • Articles your way
  • Grid or Lined Page Backgrounds
  • Sharing Notifications Email service
    …and the big one…
  • Inking in OneNote for Mac (finally)!

INSTALLATION
The odd thing I noticed is that even though I’ve got OneNote already installed on my MacBook, the 15.24 update didn’t show up automatically under Updates in the App Store; I had to search for it.

Once I clicked the Get button in the App Store and verified my Apple ID credentials, the upgrade was smooth and flawless. Now, if we could only get OneTastic for OneNote on the Mac.
😉

PRO-TIP
After you install OneNote 15.24 for Mac, enable the web clipping extension:
Open Safari | click the Share icon | click More | scroll down in the Share Menu and enable the OneNote extension.

Download – Microsoft Visio 2016 Viewer

Title: Microsoft Visio 2016 Viewer
Published: 02/22/2016
Publisher: Microsoft Corporation 
Version: 2016
32-bit: visioviewer_4339-1001_x86_en-us.exe (12.1 MB)

DESCRIPTION

By using Microsoft Visio 2016 Viewer, Visio users can freely distribute Visio drawings (files with a .vsdx, .vsdm, .vsd, .vdx, .vdw, .vstx, .vstm, .vst, or .vtx extension) to team members, partners, customers, or others, even if the recipients do not have Visio installed on their computers. Internet Explorer (versions 8-11) also allows for printing, although this is limited to the portion of the drawing displayed.

NOTE
Visio Viewer is implemented as an ActiveX control that loads and renders Visio drawings inside Internet Explorer; sorry Chrome and Opera users.

Download – Office 2016 IT Pro and Developer Preview

Today Microsoft announced the publicly-available preview of Office 2016.

The download is available by signing up for the Office 2016 Preview program on the Microsoft Connect site.

Note: You will need a Windows Live ID / Microsoft Account to sign up.

After logging into the Connect site you’ll fill out a self-nomination survey. Fill that out and then you’ll have access to the four files for the March 2015 preview:

  • Admin_OfficePreview.zip (2.27 MB)
  • Office 2016 Preview What’s Next.docx (687 KB)
  • Installation Guide for Office 2016 Preview – Business (External).docx (138 KB)
  • Known Issues for Preview – February Refresh – Business External.docx (24 KB)

Where’s the ISO?

There is no spoon.

The ZIP file contains a tiny Setup.exe file (2.42 MB) that leverages XML and BAT files to stream the installation bits to your PC in the background:

Office 2016 Preview setup screen

As you can see from the screenshot above, the bits are available in x86 ands x64 flavors.

Here are the new programs:

Office 2016 Preview

As you can also see, this *is* beta / preview level software.

Excel 2016 fail-o-rama

And if you click the Help button, the support site is *also* in beta:

Help site fail-o-rama

So – word to the wise, don’t install this in production.
