Document Instpector on Mac?

I read today a blog entry regarding the hidden information in Office document and what can be done about it (Do You Know What’s Hiding in Your Documents?).

From a personal experience, especially in business negotiation and contracts, it is kind of surprising to see what can be extracted out of a seemingly clean Word document that the author did not really planned to exposed.

Microsoft has a built-in tool to clean all of that called “Document Inspector”. The tool look easy to use and similar functionality is available for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

But I was not able to find the tool or the menu option on my Mac… A google search reveal that this capability is simply not there. I’ve seen multiple discussions about this, like this one – Using document inspector to find personally identifiable information.

As a user of a Mac I find these missing capabilities as a real annoyance. I just hope that Microsoft will take that to heart and start to complete these items…
