New features in Microsoft Word 2013

The Microsoft has made major changes to all the popular programs within Office 2013 including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. Learning Microsoft Office 2013 is the most dramatic matter. The general feature of Office 2013 is the inclusion of gesture support and an on-screen keyboard you can actually type on. This will sit well with organizations looking to deploy tablets as more than mere document viewers.

The suite is available to download now from Microsoft and can be updated some one by Word tutorial of this site. We run through the key features you can expect to see in the preview. The first thing you'll noticeable about Word 2013 is how clean the interface is. With the ugly Ribbon interface hidden away once you start typing, you can focus on the writing. A simple tap on one of the Ribbon headings brings it smoothly into view. Tap in the document area to start typing once more, and the menus slide away.

One nice touch is the responsiveness of the cursor; it transitions instantaneously from one character to the next as you type. It’s a small thing, but it makes the whole experience of typing feel luxurious — it’s like writing on a well-engineered piece of machinery, not a word processor.

There is a new Read Mode strips this down further while still allowing comments to be added as you read. This is particularly useful in conjunction with the new ability to scribble “inked” comments on a document with a stylus.

The Insert option allows you to search for online videos using Bing from within Word. You can also embed video code into the documents and then play them within the app too.

Another useful feature includes the ability to quickly embed a screenshot. Clicking Insert>screenshot will bring up a window with thumbnails of every window app on your desktop. Simply click the image you want, and it will be placed on screen. Best of all you can easy move videos and images around to wherever you want.

Hope fully the biggest problem to overcome in working with Word 2013 is the split between touch control and using it with a keyboard and mouse. In some cases, the hybrid approach works well: highlight a section and tap it with a finger, and the context menu that appears is horizontal, squeezing neatly between the onscreen keyboard and the top of the screen; right click the selection with a mouse and the context menu displays vertically.

Most of all, people like the minimalism of the Metro-inspired interface more than expected, and it’s good thing that Microsoft isn’t forcing the full-screen approach of Metro on users. On the other hand, combining touch with keyboard and mouse use raises a number of irritating problems, and some of the touch controls don’t appear to be wholly suited to tablets, which could be a minor problem for Microsoft Word tutorial reader of Surface, which will come with the  new Office Suite package.
