Aploris has been closely following Microsoft's ongoing development of Office for Mac 2016. With release 15.15 on October 13, PowerPoint for Mac 2016 started supporting add-in integration. Aploris has therefore completed the required development to integrate with Office 2016 for Mac.
Office 2016 support is now available in the latest release of Aploris Charts 4.1. Users will find all charting features in this release and most efficiency tools are included as well. Charts created with this version are fully compatible with Aploris running on other platforms including Office for Mac 2011 and Aploris for Windows with Office 2007, 2010, 2013 or 2016.
With the ribbon interface added to Office for Mac 2016, Aploris users will now benefit from a tighter UI integration that is consistent with other Office features. Editing charts is done using the same intuitive interface known to Aploris Charts users. Charts with no native support in Office 2016 including waterfall charts, Marimekko charts, and Gantts chart can now quickly be created using Aploris with Microsoft's current Office release on OS X.
Customers and trial users can download the latest release from the downloads page. Free trials are available for new users. Feedback regarding the experience with Office 2016 as well as suggestions for the ongoing development are welcome.
