    I just updated MS Office and it's supposed to have retina support but I'm noticing any difference. For example, all the icons at the top is still pixelated.

    They said "key interface elements" are Retina-ready. Maybe that's just the main document and all (or some) of the menus haven't been updated. Which is by far the most important feature. I don't mind upscaled images so much as they don't look too bad, but the text is (was) terrible.

    Edit: just finished updating. I don't see any change whatsoever. Same fugly text as usual. Sigh... I feel sorry for the people who do serious work in Office.

    Brilliant, thanks. Drag-dropping into Terminal didn't work, I had to manually navigate to Applications in Terminal and type "touch Microsoft Word.app" etc. Strange problem, but at least it's fixed. Most things except the icons in the "ribbon" seem to be Retina which is great.
