Microsoft says he has created a new way to browse Word documents through a touchscreen. Word2013 automatically adjusts the contents of the Word document to fit the window size. The article said that Microsoft by establishing "Zoom overlay" function, lets the user select the drag content on the touch screen before can the content in the document display effect to preview.
The word team works with the Microsoft Excel team to allow users to select cells, rows, and columns in the table on the touch screen. The blog added, "In terms of numbers, we have increased the ability to adjust layouts and identify complex data, such as graphs and SmartArt, and we have expanded our fingers to make it easier to resize and rotate." ”
What if a user uses a virtual keyboard when using Word2013? Microsoft says now That word can figure out where the keyboard is and will automatically adjust the content, which allows you to type a lengthy memo without manual scrolling. ”
