USER REVIEWS

A Reliable Application with Polished Interface and offers better Features

By Sam James

On Friday, August 22, 2014

In my opinion, Office 2013 changed dramatically since the introduction of the Ribbon. The first thing that I noticed is its Word 2013 program. It looks more polished and has a neat interface. I like that they tried to hide the Ribbon interface and focused more on writing. I am also impressed with its Read Mode feature. It is much better than before. It can now present an e-reader. I also like that it enables you to open and edit PDF files. At the same time, I find its cursor transition very smooth that makes your typing even better and a lot easier. Moreover, I like how they revamped the start menu. You can now choose a predefined template from the collection of templates available. Plus, the present online tool is also a fantastic addition. It lets you share link to the document. All in all, Microsoft Word 2013 is a brilliant application with lots of powerful features that will help you make your work manageable.

Pros

  • It has a neat interface
  • Lots of new tools available

Cons

  • Some features are initially confusing

By Angel Angeles

On Wednesday, September 24, 2014

My increased desire to always present neat, clear and understandable projects in college landed me to being a lover of micro soft word. I have used this tool for approximately seven years now.During my school days all my projects were created using word and today I use it for proposals, writing business letters, memorandum of understandings and many more.

What every user of micro soft word cant fail to acknowledge is that as time goes by this tools gets better and better through the numerous evolutions. The exiting part of it is you can can put a comment within a comment when you feel something is not well explained or there is a point to note. All formatting tools of word are in one tab hence making it very easy for user. Users can even view how their documents appear before printing them because one can preview the document style and document design formats. With the increased use of tablets and advancement in technology micro soft didn't forget to make word compatible with tablets.

Pros

  • One can add video file in a word document
  • With word one can edit PDF files and even save them in word
  • it is compatible with tablets.

Cons

  • It is available only at a certain fee.

Microsoft's solution for all word editing queries - Microsoft Word 2013!

By Sachin Titus

On Friday, June 6, 2014

Unleash the power of your words through the new version of Microsoft’s revolutionary word processor, ‘Word 2013’. Unlike ‘Word 2010’, the previous version which was just a tuned up version of ‘Word 2007’, ‘Word 2013’ comes with a lot of improvements and features and therefore it is a completely different product. This software resembles 2007 and 2010 versions only by its ribbon like menu, called ‘Metro’ user interface. Also, this menu is customizable as in Word 2010.

New Features in Word 2013..:

· Happy news to word users…The ultimate nightmare in any of previous versions of Word, image aligning has made easier through their ‘Live Layout and alignment guides’. You can now place the graphic wherever you wish just by dragging it (with/without wrap) without giving up the beauty of your document.

· There is another attraction to Word 2013.Ie; the new word can help you collaborate with other creative minds through cloud facilities. There are means to comment on the works too…

· This version of MS Word can manage PDFs too. A facility for cooking PDF documents was first introduced in Office 2007, but it lacked the option for editing existing ones. But, Word 2013 can not only create them, but also make changes to the existing/downloaded documents. But, this can be done only by converting PDF to word format first. Are you impressed? Then Think of converting a PDF document with a very complex layout. Won’t it be HORRIBLE?

· The new Word has a ‘Read Mode’ available in View menu, which hides all formatting icons from the page and facilitates a better reading.

· The new Word allows you add online contents (pics or videos) directly to your word document. Sounds good...Uh?

“Nothing in this Universe is complete…It is nature’s law”. Word 2013 is also not different from this. There were some expected small frustrations. The first frustrating factor is the boring metro UI. Many people like it, and many hate it. It was designed with touch screens in mind but many options didn’t respond to some gestures (or taps). Also, it is difficult for a beginner to find some tools. The software is very heavy and RAM hungry (requires 1GB RAM), and therefore it may lag in sluggish systems. Even though the price is reasonable, common people cannot even dream of it.

Verdict:

Now give wings to the words with new Microsoft Word 2013. It is the most powerful word editing platform today and therefore it is the best available in the market. Image/Graphic aligning is no more a nightmare. PDF editing facility can make it the freelancer’s choice. Comparing with the world of facilities it opens to you, price is really affordable. If your hardware lets, go for it!

Pros

  • Can handle even PDF format files
  • Live layout and alignment guides to help you align images
  • Cloud facilities makes it more powerful
  • Can add online contents directly to the document

Cons

  • Metro UI is not so attractive
  • The software is a bit overpriced one
  • Problems on handling some downloaded PDF files

Review

Microsoft Word 2013 is text processing software integrated with the popular MS Office productivity package. As with the rest of the suite, it has experienced an interface redesign, cloud services integration, is capable of running smoothly on touch-enabled devices. What’s more, it has new features, such as the improved “Read Mode”. It aims to provide an “e-reader” experience by building a distraction-free environment, removing toolbars and accessories and using columns to arrange text; just as if you were reading a real book. Additionally, opening and editing PDFs is finally possible; surely a function that most users will appreciate, as it avoids the need to download third-party software.

“E-reader” experience by building a distraction-free environment, removing toolbars and accessories and using columns to arrange text

However, some criticism has arisen regarding the disappearance of the Office 2007 and Office 2010 chart styles from Microsoft Word 2013. Similarly, several keyboard shortcuts such as those for correction options are no longer available in this version. This means that now users will have to manually access those functions in the toolbar.

Getting to know the new features

The Microsoft Word 2013 start menu has been redesigned. Now, if you do not want to start with a blank page, you can select a predefined template from the wide variety available. Along with the warmly welcomed “Read Mode”, which resizes text to fill the window, one of the most outstanding features of Microsoft Word 2013 is the fact it is now able to open and edit PDFs; so changing to other software is no longer necessary. Moreover, if you are working on a small part of a large document, then you can use the collapse and expand function to visualize only the parts you need. The only condition these features require is having used headings’ built-in formatting styles. Regarding, content distribution, you can use “Alignment Guides or “Live Layout” tools.

With the “Present Online” tool, you will be enabled to share documents with other people, and view them wherever you are, even on devices without Microsoft Word 2013 installed. Simply upload the file to the cloud and copy the link. This link will grant access to the document whenever you want and wherever you are. When it comes to collaborative and co-authoring projects, it is sometimes true that making sense of posted comments can be an ordeal if they are not clearly organized. That is why the version offers a threaded style and a new reply button. Comments will be located next to the topic of discussion so that you can easily find them. Once comments are addressed, you can mark them as completed. However, you can revisit them as many times as you want; they won’t disappear. In this sense, you can also make the most of the Simple Markup tool, as it allows for keeping track and visualizing all the changes made in a document.
