Office Suite 2013 New Features

Take a look at the new features available in Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook with the 2013 version. The 2013 version has a similar functional layout but this version offers more features. For example, Word will convert your PDF file to a document so you can easily update. Excel has a flash fill option which will automatically fill in values after you enter a few examples. PowerPoint has a presenter view which allows you to see the current slide, next slide, notes and pointer options while your audience sees only the current slide.
