Issues that this update fixes

  • Assume that you enable Mouse mode in Microsoft Word 2013 on a touch-enabled device. When you type some text in a table in the Web Layout view, Word 2013 crashes.

  • Consider the following scenario:

    • You start Microsoft Narrator on your computer.

    • You use Word 2013 to open a document that contains some list items.
