Product Description

Platform: PC | Edition: 1 User with Licence Card Version (PC)

The new Word gives you a new, clean view so you can enjoy the read right from your screen. Of course, you still get professional-grade tools for creating beautiful documents and working with others. Stay on top of the latest changes to a shared document, and all the conversations in the document. Have your documents saved and stored online, so you know you’re using the right version. Add polish and style with new compelling templates and tools, and support for online videos and photos. Polish. Work together. And enjoy the read.

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.

  • Enjoy reading with a view that displays your documents in easy-to-read columns on the screen. Editing tools are removed to minimise distractions, but you still have access to the tools that are always handy for reading such as Define, Translate, and Search on Web.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Watch online videos right in Word, without having to leave the document, so you can stay focused on the content.

Work together
Work with others with streamlined collaboration tools.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

1.0 out of 5 stars 2 steps back 22 Jun. 2013
By Comical Engineer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:1 User with Licence Card Version (PC)
Take a step back into the black and white world of 1960s TV with the new monochrome interface. Which shouts at you because it uses ALL CAPITALS in the tab labels. That's the obvious stuff. The annoying ribbon is still just as annoying as ever, resizing and moving the icons round apparently randomly if you change the size of the window or screen resolution. You also still get to play "hunt the icon" with the seriously annoying "context sensitive" menus. Ribbon customisation is equally as time consuming and clunky.

More pain comes with "live layout" - which is supposed to make text flow smoothly round pictures etc that you have inserted into the text. Except that whenever I try to put a picture in where I want it, Word insists in putting it somewhere else, e.g. at the end of a section or even another seemingly random page! Now, text wrap worked just fine in Office 2003, so 10 years on and another step back in useability.

Text still defaults to some ridiculous line spacing unless you re-edit it and the massive number of "themes" are still pathetic. Outline numbering is stupidly complex and the keyboard shortcuts are still bizarre e.g. why is the VIEW shortcut <ALT W> when there is no tab that begins with the letter V?

MS Office is like a new model of a car that has the clutch where the brake should be, all the gears in the wrong order and a huge bloated dashboard full of useless, distracting controls that obscures the view of the road. It doesn't add any new useful functions and is even less pleasant to look at than Office 2010. Most formatting options e.g. the "paragraph" menu is just the same as in Office 2000(!) except it's not more difficult to find.

The price of this software is ridiculous when compared against similarly performing products like Libre Office and Kingsoft Office (both free).

Don't buy unless you absolutely MUST have the latest version of Word (although I can't think of any good reason).

1.0 out of 5 stars Last word 2013 20 Aug. 2013
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:1 User with Licence Card Version (PC)
Unfortunately I completely agree with the last comment made by "comical engineer"; Word 2013 is a disaster. Normally I use WordPerfect, now in vs 6, but unfortunately Corel for commercial resasons only issued a French and an English version. But I am happy with that elegant software. I also use Word (as a necessity in connection with Email), but as the 2007 version was passable, the new one is a hopeless deterioration: The toolboxes are cluttered with myriad of mysterious symbols and references which nobody needs. There is no use of colour, and the lettering is hardly readable, and there is no system to enlarge the letters. Adding simple symbols and accents (normal for scientific and literary documents) is a time-consuming and confusing exercise. The problem is that most journal editors request submission of tekst in Word as most of them have no software available to translate from other word processors. After some delay I discovered where I could insert footnotes and endnotes but again this part of the software is unclear and confusing. I pity those students who have no choice!

Amazon was great as usual; Word 2013 is beautiful, but I made the mistake of trying out the Free Trial Home Office that came with a new Lenovo 580 computer. I should have deleted the thing instantly and completely. I got to successfully enter the serial number in the box -you don't get a disk - but then it wouldn't download Word 2013 itself! Amazingly I found the freephone UK helpline number and a fantastic Russian lady took control of my computer, totally cleared the trial and brought Word through. I can't give you advice, but beware. After entering the long serial code don't hit the install button on the very next page that comes up. Scroll down that page to Word 2013 and hit that Install. They should clearly state in a different colour that Word Install is way down below. Good luck; as software it is the best yet. You get a very useful tile on your desktop for Word in the superb Windows 8 system.
