Office 2013 Feature Focus: Object Zoom

Works with: Word

Object zoom lets you quickly display pictures, tables and charts in a Word document in larger sizes while in Read mode.

Object zoom is easy to use: All you have to do is double-click the object—or, on a touch-based system, tap it.



To toggle between the two available zoom sizes, just click (or tap) the zoom control to the upper right of the object.


To exit Object zoom, just click (or tap) outside the object. When you do, Word will return to the normal Read mode view.
