Over the past couple of days we have been hearing a lot of things about the upcoming version of Microsoft’s most popular Office Suite the Office 2013,as we have already reported earlier this week that the Beta is expected as early as next week.
As we inch closer for the beta release,more details about the upcoming features of Office 2013,One of the most appealing features this time around is the PDF Editing support.So now whenever you download a PDF document you can directly open it in the Word and can edit the same without use of any third party tool,as reported earlier by LiveSide.
This is how it will work,
To convert a PDF, you open it like you would any other document.
- Click File > Open > Browse.
- Find the PDF and click Open.
The converted document might not have a perfect page to page correspondence with the original. The conversion works best with mostly textual documents.
Paul Thurrott also reported about some new features coming to Office 2013,PDF viewer as well as a new Reading mode which allows the conventional Word Documents as well as the PDF documents to be viewed in a columnar fashion which adjusts the text automatically for a better viewing alignment.
As you can see from the above screenshots which shows the new Reading Mode.In the existing version of Office there is a feature of saving the document as a PDF(Office 2010) and even a plugin is available for the same feature to work on Office 2007.So with the upcoming release of Office 2013 we can expect some more interesting features like the one shown above and as we all know that the final release is at least half a year away we can certainly expect some more features to be added to the final version of Office 2013.
Office 2013 will be available in the desktop version of Windows 8 as well as in the ARM version i.e for the Windows RT version of the upcoming operating system.
