Microsoft Office 2013 to get in-built PDF editing support: Report
How often does it happen that one has a PDF file and one has to revert to Adobe Reader or similar equivalent to open the file. For years, users have yearned for built-in PDF support in Microsoft Office or atleast in the Microsoft Word module of Office. According to multiple sources it is believed that this functionality is finally coming in Office 2013, which is scheduled to hit the Consumer Preview later this month.
Microsoft insider Paul Thurrot has posted a few images of the built-in PDF reader in Office 2013, which includes a paper back like twin column view and bookmarking capabilities. Additionally, LiveSide.net notes that Microsoft Word will have PDF editing capabilities baked in which will eliminate the need to use a third party PDF viewing or editing software.
Admittedly, there has been a plug-in since Office 2007 for PDF editing, but that does not negate the fact that Office 2013 will have this feature baked in from the get go, without the need to download an additional plug-in.
