PDF Document Editing
Earlier you could create a PDF file and even convert or save a Word document into PDF format.

The Word 2013 gives you the option to edit PDF files; you also have an option to save them in PDF or DOCX format. You can open this file format in Word; the file will retain its PDF format. Now you can just open a PDF file and edit it directly without having to convert it in a Word file.

Now adding graphics and objects is easy with Office 2013. Working with Excel, Publisher, Word and Outlook is easy when it comes to inserting pictures from a local source or from online options. The introduction of insert ribbon is what makes the functionality of adding graphics easy. For example, you choose the online options like online Clipart, inserting images via search like Bing or from other sources like Flicker or SkyDrive.
