A preview of the new Office 2013

The new Microsoft Office package has some pretty handy new improvements.

New features in word:

  • With the new Online Video button you can insert video clips.
  • A right click on a specific word enables users to look up its definition in a dictionary or get help with the pronunciation.
  • Reply to comments or mark them as ‘done’.
  • We waited so long for this option, now it is finally posible – the ability to edit a PDF with Word 2013.

  • Shortcut letters will become visible if you click ALT. In order to activate this option you only need to tab the relevant key.
  • With the brush icon it is possible to preview changes to style and colour of a chart without actually changing something.
  • By pressing the ‘Recommended Charts’ button Excel will give you a variety of charts which suit best to your data.
  • Get the number of cells and the sum of all values or the average value by choosing a specific range of cells.
