For instance, the new Design tab, which enables users to select text fonts, themes and colour, has consolidated its document styling buttons into a single tab.

Previous versions of Word had these features scattered all over user interface.

Another feature users will likely enjoy is the new Read mode. The feature automatically resizes a document to full screen view. Users can now click on an on-screen arrow to flip through pages are swipe across the screen (if you’re using a touchscreen device) to get to the next page.

When users right click on any word, a definition for that word appears. You can also click on an image or chart to automatically enlarge it.

Having trouble with editing PDFs? Now Word 2013 not only allows users to open a PDF document, it also enables editing them without the need for a third party app. Now, users can change data inside tables and even move images around the document.
