Discover the new Office (II): Word 2013

Undoubtedly, Word is one of the cornerstones of all Microsoft Office suites. As outlined below, this new version has focused on improving aspects of reading documents, teamwork and refinement of small details.

Enjoy reading

With the new Word 2013, users can enjoy a greater focus on reading screen, thanks to the absence of distractions that caused the toolbars.

  • Zoom: When users view tables, graphs, images or videos online, just click twice with your finger or click the mouse to look more closely at the details.
  • Resume reading: automatically dials the last point seen. That is, when we open a document, Word 2013 will open with the last page we have reviewed, even if we open the document on a different computer.


The sharing of documents reviewed by several people is more efficient than any other version of the product.

  • Reply comments: The new Word 2013 includes the option to respond to comments right side of the text that is under review, increasing productivity when doing computer work.
