Microsoft also supported the new hardware interface, Apple, submitting the updated application from the MS Office package with support for Touch Bar.
If you are using Word on a Mac, then you should know about the so-called mode Focus Mode that takes away all the workers bar at the top of the screen and provides the opportunity to work with the contents of the document without the “stimuli”. Now the access panel to the main features in Focus Mode moved on the Touch Bar and the user can select the desired options (font, color, style, numbering, bullets, and so on) on the OLED display laptop.
In Excel, on Touch Bar displays some popular functions and frequently used tasks.
Similar opportunities got PowerPoint. The program panel allows you to control graphical elements: use the Touch Bar to move and rotate objects, achieving their optimal location on the slide.
