Using This Documentation

Throughout this documentation, we refer to controls—buttons, menus, etc.—on the Macabacus tabs in Excel, PowerPoint, and Word. Such references are expressed as: Macabacus > [Button/Menu Name]. We use the same text style to denote shortcut keystrokes, file names/paths, and dialog controls. If only the referenced control's icon is visible on the Macabacus tab, the text shown in this documentation is the text that appears at the top of the tooltip visible when you mouse over the control.

Most Macabacus tools for Excel have associated keyboard shortcuts. Where these tools' shortcuts are cycles or toggles, a appears next to the tool name. Where we consider a tool's shortcut to be essential for maximizing productivity, a appears next to the tool's name.

Throughout this documentation, we refer to Excel, PowerPoint, and Word collectively as "Office applications." Such references implicitly exclude Outlook and any other Office application for which Macabacus is not installed.

This documentation refers to the latest Macabacus version. Some features and descriptions of these features may not apply to older versions of Macabacus. Update your Macabacus software to take advantage of the latest features.
