1 Microsoft Office 2013 Quick Reference Card Office 2013 is very much like Office 2010 in its basic functionality. It uses a tabbed Ribbon across the top and employs dialog boxes and a Quick Access Toolbar. The ribbon is flatter and less shadowed giving it an uncluttered, modern look. When you start a program, a new color-coded Start Screen appears. Although creating a blank document, spreadsheet, or presentation is the default option, from this screen you can open a recent file within the application, find and open an older file, select a theme or template or search for additional templates. Office 2013 gives you access to thousands of templates for just about every purpose you can imagine. If you want to turn the Start Screen off, click File Options on the General tab uncheck Show the Start screen when this application starts. Office 2013 can now be used effectively on touch-enabled devices. For example, the new Read Mode in Word opens a document in reading view allowing users to swipe through the document with their finger. Click the Touch Mode button on the Quick Access Toolbar and the ribbon toolbar spreads its icons farther apart for easier access with fingers. Refer to The Ribbon section for additional information. Instead of Insert Clipart, we now have Insert Online Pictures which includes images within the Office Clipart collection online, but also your own OneDrive, Facebook account, etc. SkyDrive, the Microsoft Cloud service, is now called OneDrive and SkyDrive Pro is now called OneDrive for Business. Right-click an image, shape, or other object and select Format Picture to open the new Format Picture task pane. Leave the pane open as you work so that it is visible without cluttering your workspace. The Ribbon Contextual Tabs Quick Access Toolbar Tabs Title bar Help Ribbon Display (appear only when needed) Options Group Names File tab Dialog Box Launchers Gallery (click for more options) Minimize Ribbon Ribbon: Displays the commands and tools you need to perform various tasks.

2 The Ribbon (cont) Quick Access Toolbar (QAT): Provides quick access to the commands you use most frequently. The Save, Undo, and Redo/Repeat buttons appear on the QAT by default.

To Return to Default Settings: Click the Customize Quick Access Toolbar button More Commands Reset OK. Get Help: Click the Help button. Or, press F1. Or, click the File tab and select Help from the menu. Miscellaneous Galleries Live Preview A gallery is a set of formatting results or preformatted document parts. To Enable Touch Mode: In Touch mode, additional space is added around all of the buttons and icons to make them easier to touch. Click the Customize Quick Access Toolbar button and select Touch/Mouse Mode. The Touch Mode button will appear in the QAT. Click Touch to spread the interface out. Touch Navigation: Basic gestures include tap, tap-hold, double-tap, pinch, stretch, slide, and swipe. On-screen Keyboard: Tap the Touch Keyboard button on the taskbar. Help for Touch Mode: For more specifics about navigating and working via touch, click the Help button and search for Office Touch Guide. Key Tips: Press Alt to reveal available Key Tips, then press the letter or number to execute the command. Tip: After pressing the Alt key and then a letter to select a Ribbon tab, press Tab and Shift + Tab to move forward and backward between the commands on that tab. Press either Spacebar or Enter key to select command. To turn off Key Tips: Press Alt again, click a blank area with the mouse, or press the Esc key. Word includes galleries for text styles, themes, headers, footers, page colors, tables, WordArt, equations, symbols, and more. Other Office applications include their own specific galleries, such as the Transitions and Animations galleries in PowerPoint. In most cases, click a button or drop-down arrow to open a gallery, and then click the gallery choice to apply to the selected text or object. Live Preview temporarily applies the highlighted gallery choice to the current document selection, enabling you to instantly see the results without actually having to apply that formatting. Not all galleries and formatting options have Live Preview enabled. You also don t see Live Preview when working with dialog boxes. Some galleries have draggable borders that enable you to see more of what you are tying to preview. Look for a handle with four dots ( ) to resize the border by dragging up. If there are three dots in the lower-right corner ( ), that means you can resize both its height and width by dragging diagonally. Mini Toolbar Shortcut menus and contextual command buttons Live Preview can be turned off: File Options on the General tab uncheck The Mini Toolbar is a set of formatting tools that appears when you first select text. It is not context-sensitive and it always contains an identical set of formatting tools. When you first select text, the Mini Toolbar appears above and to the right of the mouse pointer. It will disappear when the mouse is moved away from the selection. Right-click the selection to redisplay the Mini Toolbar along with a shortcut menu. The Mini Toolbar can be turned off: File Options on the General tab uncheck PowerPoint When you right-click a selection or object, a context-sensitive shortcut menu appears, along with the Mini Toolbar. Office 2013 has added a new form of contextual tools so that when you select some types of objects, such as a chart, one or more contextual command buttons will appear to the right of the object. Clicking some of these buttons opens a flyout gallery of formatting options for the selection or opens a list of choices that you can click to toggle on and off. Deselect the object to hide the buttons. Word Excel Panes Panes were referred to as task panes in previous versions are similar to dialog boxes. They appear on-screen to help you navigate, perform research, apply formatting, apply animation to objects, and more. Panes make commands available while still enabling you to type and make selections in the document. Some panes appear docked on the left or right side of the document window, where others automatically appear undocked. Undock by pointing to its title bar and dragging to the desired location. Double-click a floating pane s title to return to docked position. You can display several Panes on-screen at any time. To close a Pane, click its Close (X) button.

Office Theme and Office Background Each Office program has its own designated color: Word is blue, Excel is green, PowerPoint is orange, Outlook is blue, etc. Office 2013 offers a choice of three themes: White (the default), Light Gray, and Dark Gray. Every tab heading is identified with black text on a white or gray background and the File tab stands out with white type on a bold-colored background. The Office Background option controls whether you see a faint decorative pattern in the space above the ribbon. Image at right shows the School Supplies background. Changing your Office Theme and/or Office Background affects all Office programs immediately.
