Word 2013 Software from Microsoft improves on the 2010 version by retaining the reliability of Word while adding new features that increase productivity. Word 2013 allows you to work with more media types, such as online videos and pictures, without having to leave Word. You can also open PDFs and edit them as well.
The innovative Read Mode offers a clean and distraction-free way of reviewing your document, ideal for tablets and other portable devices. You can also team up with colleagues by placing comments right next to the text where they can see it. In order to utilize this feature, you'll need access to the Internet and a Microsoft account.
Live Layout lets you experiment. When you drag a photo, video or shape to a position, text reflows instantly around it. Release the mouse button and your object and surrounding text stay right where you want them. You can also choose from over 40 categories of Word templates to get you started.
What's new in Word 2013
Do more with your docs: Pop in an online video, open a PDF and edit the content, align pictures and diagrams with minimal fuss. The new Read Mode is clean and distraction-free - and it works great on tablets. Teaming-up is better too, with direct connections to your online spaces and streamlined review features like Simple Markup and comments.
Enjoy the read:
Get absorbed in Word documents right from your screen with a new clean, comfortable reading view.
New Read Mode Enjoy reading with a view that displays your documents in easy-to-read columns on the screen.
Editing tools are removed to minimize distractions, but you still have access to the tools that are always handy for reading such as Define, Translate, and Search on Web.
Object zoom Double-tap with your finger or double-click with your mouse to zoom in and make tables, charts and images in your document fill the screen. Focus on and take in the information, then tap or click again outside the object to zoom out and continue reading.
Resume reading Reopen a document and keep reading right where you left off. Word remembers where you were - even when you reopen an online document from a different computer!
Online video Watch online videos right in Word, without having to leave the document, so you can stay focused on the content.
Expand and collapse Collapse or expand parts of a document with just a tap or click. Put summaries in headings and leave it to readers to open the section and read the details if they want.
Work with others with streamlined collaboration tools.
Save and share files in the cloud The cloud is like file storage in the sky. You can get to it anytime you're online. Now it's easy to share a document using SharePoint or SkyDrive. From there you can access and share your Word docs, Excel spreadsheets, and other Office files. You can even work together with your colleagues on the same file at the same time.
Simple markup A new revision view, Simple Markup, provides a clean, uncomplicated view of your document, but you still see indicators where tracked changes have been made.
Reply to comments and mark them as done Comments now have a reply button. You can debate and easily track comments right next to the relevant text. And when a comment is addressed and no longer requires attention, you can mark it as done. It will be greyed out to keep out of your way, but the conversation will still be there if you need to revisit it later.
Add polish and style:
With Word 2013 you can create more beautiful and engaging documents, and you can work with more media types - like online videos and pictures. You can even open PDFs.
Start with a template When you open Word 2013, you're offered a choice of great new templates to help get you started along with a list your recently viewed documents so you can get back to where you left off in no time. If you'd rather not use a template, click the Blank document.
Open and edit PDFs Open PDFs and edit the content in Word. Edit paragraphs, lists, and tables just like familiar Word documents. Take the content and make it look great.
Insert online pictures and video Add online videos directly to your documents that readers can watch right in Word. Add your pictures from online photo services without having to save them first to your computer.
