How to Enhance Your Office for Mac Experience with Dark Mode and Continuity Camera


Microsoft Office for Mac gets dark mode and support for Continuity Camera




If you are a Mac user who relies on Microsoft Office for your productivity needs, you might be interested in knowing that Microsoft has recently released an update that brings some new features and improvements to its Office suite for Mac. In this article, we will explore what these new features are and how you can use them to enhance your work experience.




Microsoft Office for Mac gets dark mode and support for Continuity Camera



What is dark mode and why is it useful?




Dark mode is a feature that changes the appearance of your apps from a light background to a dark background. This can make your apps easier on your eyes in low-light environments, such as working at night or in a dimly lit room. Dark mode can also help you save battery life on your laptop by reducing the brightness of your screen. Additionally, dark mode can match the system theme of macOS Mojave, which also supports dark mode across its native apps.


Microsoft has added dark mode support to its Office apps for Mac, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. This means that you can now enjoy a darker look on your documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and emails.


How to enable dark mode on Office for Mac?




To enable dark mode on Office for Mac, you need to have macOS Mojave or later installed on your device. Then, follow these steps:



  • Click on the Apple menu icon Select System Preferences



  • Click on General



  • Under Appearance, choose Dark



Once you do this, your Office apps will automatically switch to dark mode. You can also switch back to light mode by choosing Light under Appearance.


If you want to change the mode for a specific app only, you can do so by following these steps:



  • Open the app that you want to change the mode for



  • Click on the app name in the menu bar



  • Select Preferences



  • Under Personalize, choose either Use system setting, Light, or Dark



This will override the system setting and apply the mode that you choose for that app only.


What is Continuity Camera and how does it work?




Continuity Camera is a feature that allows you to insert photos from your iPhone or iPad into your PowerPoint slides. This can be useful when you want to capture something from the real world and add it to your presentation, such as a document, a whiteboard, a product, or a scene.


To use Continuity Camera, you need to have macOS Mojave or later and iOS 12 or later on your devices. You also need to make sure that both devices are signed in with the same Apple ID, have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi turned on, and are within 10 meters of each other.


How to use Continuity Camera on PowerPoint for Mac?




To use Continuity Camera on PowerPoint for Mac, follow these steps:



  • Open PowerPoint and create or open a presentation



  • Select the slide where you want to insert the photo



  • Right-click on an empty space on the slide and choose Insert from iPhone or iPad



  • Select either Take Photo or Scan Documents from the submenu



  • On your iPhone or iPad, open the Camera app and take a photo or scan a document



  • Tap Use Photo or Keep Scan on your iPhone or iPad



  • The photo or document will appear on your PowerPoint slide automatically
