Microsoft has updated Office 2011 to version 14.30 with a short, but sweetly detailed rundown of fixes in this maintenance release. Most of the changes involve PowerPoint, including fixes for a display issue that affected collapsed sections in Slide Sorter view, an issue with hyperlinks that included hashtags not being saved correctly, a crash that occurred when using the Paste Special option, and an issue that prevented pasting of text from PowerPoint for Windows into PowerPoint for Mac. The update also fixes an issue in Outlook where invitation times from non-Exchange calendar servers were off by an hour, and only during certain times of the year. (Free updates via the Office for Mac Web site or through Microsoft AutoUpdate, 106 MB, release notes)
Type Faster by Competing in Races
A fun way to improve your typing speed and accuracy is to join an online typing competition at typrX. This typing competition keeps track of your typing speed, while allowing you to compete against other people, either around the world in public races or with friends in private races. To setup a private race with your friends, follow these simple steps.
- Once you have a typrX account, click the Create Private Race button on the front page and you’ll be taken to the private race page.
- From there, copy the track code URL and send it to the friends you want to join the race.
- You can click the Delay Countdown button to add 10 seconds to the clock if you are waiting on your friend to join the race.
