    In this scenario, the video does not play, and you receive the following error message:
    We can't play this video because you're missing a plugin.
  • Assume that a Word 2010 document contains a paragraph, and tab stops are inserted on the right side of the right indent marker. After you convert the document to a Word 2013 document, the text layout of the paragraph is changed unexpectedly.
