Microsoft Word 2013 belongs to the most popular ofimatic suite in the world, Microsoft Office. Knowing that, you have a quality guarantee that allows you to purchase it with security. This software is a word processor that has changed radically compared to the previous version. It includes new features and they are very interesting. However, the most relevant one is the PDF feature. This 2013 version will have the ability of opening and even editing PDF files. Up to day, this feature was only available in some Adobe products, but Microsoft and Adobe have joined forces in order to make this possible.

Opening and editing PDF files will not be something difficult, you can open the files as you do with the Word ones, and you can edit the document as easy as always. Nevertheless, the developers warn that the PDF document, once opened with Microsoft Word 2013 will not be exactly the same as the original one. The software will work better with PDF files composed by text that with those which have lots of images. In addition, the program will open the document in the last page you use the last time you opened the file, so you will not have to search it manually.

Pros

  • You can edit PDF files
  • Microsoft offers security when purchasing it

Cons

  • It is too much expensive

Microsoft Word 2013: New and improved word processor with added features

By Gfx Syne

On Thursday, January 7, 2016

I had been using Microsoft Word 2007 before I switched to Microsoft Word 2013. It wasn’t a huge leap for me since I was aware of most of the basic features. But Word 2013 has many new features that weren’t present in Word 2007. First there’s the Design tab which means that users can now customize the design of their documents. This allows greater flexibility in changing the formatting of text e.g. Title size, font, and color; heading size, font, and color; text font, size, and color; document color scheme, additional shapes and so on. I think it’s a nifty tool for the design savvy people who want their documents to look more tailored rather than cookie cutter designs that everyone uses. Also, there is the reading mode and the editing mode which means that you won’t accidently edit the document or type a letter while reading. In the reading mode, editing is disabled which means that no matter how many types you accidentally hit a key on your keyboard, the document will not be edited.

Pros

  • • Ability to customize the design
  • • Reading mode for comfortable reading experience

Cons

  • • Some of the features that users are used to in previous versions are hard to find
