Word is cleaner, sleeker, and easier on the eyes. Better templates and design tools help you put the finishing touch on documents, and you'll find updated ways to share and work with others.
Better read mode
Text reflows automatically in columns to make it easier to read.
When you view tables, charts, images, or online videos, a finger tap or mouse click lets you see the detail. When you're done, another tap or click returns them to their original size.
Word automatically bookmarks your last-visited spot. Enjoy your reading, take a breather, and then pick up where you left off - even on a different PC or tablet.
Place comments next to the text you're discussing so it's easy to track the conversation.
Your documents are saved online to SkyDrive or SharePoint by default. Send everyone a link to the same file, along with their viewing and editing permissions, and be assured that everyone sees the latest version.
Share your document with others even if they don't have Word. Send them a link, and as you read through the document on your screen, they can follow along in their browsers.
Align charts, photos, and diagrams with your text for a polished, professional look. Handy guides pop into place when you need them and disappear when you're done.
Text reflows instantly as you drag a photo, video, or shape to its position. Release the mouse button, and your object and surrounding text stay where you want them.
