Word 2013: New Read Mode

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.
