Hi David, thank you for buying the book.

Regarding your first question, please check out these two links for comparisons between a Mac and PC:




Regarding your second question, can you clarify please, does the size difference you refer to have to do with the actual size of the dialog boxes themselves, or of the font size in the dialog boxes? This may be a system setting on your Mac, but I'm not sure as I read your question.

Default Excel 2011 for Mac

Both the size of the form and the text are smaller on the Mac. This seems to be a common feature with most of the Apple software - you usually have to zoom in on apps to read 10pt or smaller. Not always possible.

But for some reason these forms get reduced more than normal. I'm having to resize by a factor of up to 2. That is, 10pt -> 20pt.

Thanks for the links to the Shortcut tables. The first is particularly useful.

Not being a Mac user myself, I'll put the word out to Excel experts I know who do use Macs. I know that VBA with Macs is not as seamless a combination as with PCs, and it might be, depending on the dialog box(es) in question, that over time, Microsoft has changed the compatibility of VBA objects with Macs. If you find out anything on your own, please post back with that info, as I bet other readers would also be interested. Meanwhile, I'll be up at Microsoft in a couple weeks and will ask about this in person. If I find out anything I'll let you know.
