This article describes the issues that are fixed in the Microsoft Word 2013 hotfix package that is dated July 8, 2014.


Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • When you reject a tracked change in a table in a Word document, the layout of the table may change.

  • It is slow to programmatically access bookmarks in a Word document in Word 2013.

  • You cannot type Chinese characters in the Subject, TO, or CC field in Microsoft Outlook 2013 after you wake your computer from sleep mode.

  • Assume that you have a remote connection to a Windows Server 2008-based guest computer that has Remote Desktop Services installed. You open a Word document in Word 2013, then you switch to any other program on the host computer, and then you wait several minutes (so that Word enters Low Resource Mode). In this situation, when you click back on the Word document's body to change the location of the cursor, the cursor may not move to the new location immediately.

  • When a document is not opened in compatibility mode, you may be unable to obtain the expected line count.

  • After you install the April 2014 cumulative update, if part of a floating table breaks across pages, text lines and paragraphs that wrap around the table may appear after it instead of next to it. If you usetheLine Numbers feature, the line numbers may appear after the page break, and extend past the end of the table.
    Note This behavior is consistent with previous versions of Word, which do not support wrapped text around tables. Users who require the Word 2013 RTM behavior can install the current hotfix and then set the wdDelayableFloatingTable document compatibility flag on the specific documents to which the change need be applied.
