Microsoft Office 2011 looks awful on the new MacBook Pro’s Retina display. But unfortunately for its customers, it seems Microsoft has no plans to add high-resolution graphics. While Outlook 2011 does have Retina graphics, the company has confirmed that the rest of the suite will have “the same viewing quality as on any non-Retina device.”
Macworld repots that Office users with the next-generation MacBook Pro have been complaining that apps like Word, Excel, and Powerpoint look “very fuzzy,” “crap” and “blurry” on its high-resolution Retina display. The problem is, it seems that situation isn’t going to change anytime soon.
In a post on the Office for Mac blog, a Microsoft representative replying to use comments confirmed that although Outlook 2011 supports the Retina display, “the remaining apps will have the same viewing quality as on any non-Retina device.”
They continued: “Unfortunately at this time, we cannot comment on any future updates regarding supporting Retina on Word, Excel or Powerpoint.”
