- Assume that you paste a table from a right-to-left Microsoft Excel worksheet to an email message in Microsoft Outlook 2013. When you print the email message, the border of the table will not be right aligned or not all visible.
- Assume that a user opens a document that contains several pages (for example, seven pages or more) in Microsoft Word 2013. The document also contains ActiveX controls. Then, the user scrolls forward several pages and then scrolls back. In this situation, the user cannot use the ActiveX controls unless design mode is toggled two times.
- Assume that you put a Word template into a folder. Then, you insert links (*.lnk file) to your individual templates in the Custom Office Templates folder. When you try to create a file by opening a linked template from the Backstage pane in Word 2013, a file conversion dialog box for the linked file is displayed unexpectedly.
- Assume that you install SharePoint Server 2013 or SharePoint Server 2013 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and that you also install Office Web Apps 2013 or Office Web Apps 2013 SP1. When you open an attached .pdf file by using Office Web Apps 2013, some images may be missing in the file.
