Previous versions of Word came with useful layout options optimised for printing and web viewing. Print layout and webpage layout were particularly useful in years gone by.
The recent addition to Word 2013 sees the introduction of a new Read Mode. Optimised for tablets and touch, your document will adjust according to screen size and orientation. Documents now scroll vertically instead of horizontally for a better user experience on tablet devices.
There are 3 ways to view your document in Read Mode.

A great way of preserving the look and feel of the original source document when sending to multiple devices, the PDF is a much loved office favourite. Compressing large file sizes into much reduced versions is one of the PDFs best features. However, up until recently, making changes to a PDF file in Word was all but impossible.
Thanks to Word 2013 you can open PDFs in Word format, edit them and then save them as another PDF or Word Document. That’s great for correcting small errors or updating data to make it more current.
How to: Open Word > Browse PDF file > Open PDF > Start Editing
Tip: The conversion works best with documents that are mostly text. The more images within the text can prompt formatting complications.
