Saving - no matter if it's a character or a race, clicking an internal save button gives a runtime error "68" device unavailable. Workaround - save the document from the menu instead.
Importing pictures - Excel 2011 has no support for ActiveX controls.
Hitting the clear button - it tells me it's erasing, but it just seems to hang there.
Other than that, it seems to work great. I have loaded my 5th level paladin, built out a custom +2 longsword in the equipment, and have created his mount.
I can print him out, print out his spell list, or run it from the laptop screen.
Custom area seems to work great, as I was able to select "Longsword" for weapon focus.
A few minor things I can work around, but I'm not sure if I'm staring at a bug, a Mac bug, or a different interpretation of the rules.

Unfortunately, having no access to a Mac (and even less to Mac Excel 2011!) I can't debug the Sheet for that platform at this time...
I was told they would fix it for the next service pack.Drakkar wrote:Is there any update about Mac compatibility with TOS+? The last response to this question was 9 months ago.

I have no idea when they plan to release this...

Subject: Re: Excel 2011 crashes while entering data
As you still handling Excel Crashes?
I tested Mac Excel Version: 184.108.40.206402 for the problem I reported over a year ago, and unfortunately it seems your Excel is still crashing (I did the 'Quick Crash' test below, and Excel crashed right away...)
I was hoping this would have been fixed by now...
Quick crash steps:
1- Open the workbook + activate macros
2- Navigate to the Laptop sheet
3- Enter 3 in the damage box, part of the 'HP Hit Points' section
We thought we fixed in 14.2.0, but unfortunately, it still crashes in 14.2.1. I will follow up.

How can I work 'round this?
