A hint about new ‘Design’ features in Word 15
A close look at a Windows 8 preview video gives a clue about features in the next version of Word.
There is a new tab called ‘Design’ which suggests there’s new Word features to make easier to create complex documents – more ‘Publisher’ like options.
That’s a expected and sensible move for Word since the gap between Word and Publisher has been narrowing for many years.
‘Design’ is a fixed tab with fairly prominent position on the left between ‘Insert’ and ‘Page Layout’.
The ‘Page Layout’ tab is still there, but it’s possible that some of the existing layout features like Theme and Page Borders might be moved to the new Design tab.
