Older than Office XP
Office XP (Office 2002)
I tried Office 2013 on both Windows 8 and Windows 7.
In both cases the font rendering was shockingly blurry. I tried the tips re hardware acceleration etc in the Options menu but there was no improvement.
I have gone back to Office 2010 - at least the fonts are clear.
We (Ford employees) just received notification that we can purchase a "home use" license for $9.95 for Office 2013 Professional Plus. We can install it on a home PC and 1 laptop. Very cool!
I am using 2007 because I am old school and don't know any better
U need the office compatibility tool to open 2007+ documents
I'll have to tell my son-in-law about the Ford Office 2013 perk. He works on the commercial line (F-150 line) at the Kansas City (Claycomo) assembly plant.
I just installed Office 2013 on my wife's laptop and because Office 2010 was already installed but Outlook isn't used for email on the laptop, Office 2013 installed without removing Office 2012. On my wife's main PC, the Office 2013 replaced the Office 2010 installation and replaced Outlook and kept all of her settings and data intact. Pretty clean install. I think my wife will like the 2013 version because it's "cleaner" looking and less complicated, as least to the user...
Yes, the "employee home use" deal simply cannot be neat! You can download the Office suite (Pro version) for $9.95 and if you add a few $, you'll get the DVD. I don't order the DVD, as I download the app, then install it and store the app and the accompanying license and key in the same folder on the server... Makes it much easier when the time comes to reinstall...
I have not experienced the font rendering issues at all and I'm running Office 2013 on two desktop and two laptops PC's that are all running Win7. I had Office 2013 on my PC when I was running Win8 and no problems of any kind... I wonder if it's your video driver?
