Beta version of Microsoft Office 2013 launched

For the Office world, today was a very important day. The beta version of Office 2013 was launched in San Francisco. The new features of Office 2013 have been kept secret until now.

Lots of changes have been made to Office lately. Optimization for touchscreens, ARM-based tablet support and a new Metro interface are only a part of these transformations. This new version of Office will bring us new productivity features for business. The special capabilities that are brought to us by Windows 8 will be used by Office 2013.

One of the new feature that I’m very excited about is the password-protected change tracking. With this new feature, only people that know the password will be able to accept changes of a document. In Outlook, we will be having the inline replies feature. We will be able to reply an email without opening a new window.

If Windows 8 has Marketplace where we will be able to buy or download free applications for Windows 8, the same will be for Office 2013. The Office Marketplace will be created, where we will be able to find and download extensions for Office 2013.

These are only a part of the features that Office 2013 brings us. In the Office world, Office 2013 is made to help users write documents and emails more easily. The new Office comes fully integrated with the new capabilities of Windows 8 and tables.

Microsoft Office documents store results of many hours, days or even years of work of practically all office employees and most people who use their computers at home. Microsoft Word dominates the market of word processors, and most if not all documents are stored in RTF and its proprietary DOC formats. Microsoft Excel and its XLS file format dominate spreadsheet market. Most presentations are created in Microsoft PowerPoint and stored in PPT files, and most charts and drawings are drawn in Microsoft Visio and saved as VSD files. Combined, files in these formats occupy significant space on the users’ hard drives, and represent hours and hours of work, much more than any other file format. ‘.”-
