Office 2013 will be Microsoft’s next installment of its office suite software, and, as with all other previous releases, there will be new icons to represent each particular program.  Oh yea, MS Office 2013 will also have built-in PDF editing!

Two MS Office 2013 icons shown on liveside.net may be the blueprint to the whole suite.  As seen from the OneNote and the Excel icons, the letter that corresponds to the programs, “N” and “X”, are imprinted in white into a rectangle at a slightly skewed angle.  There’s a very slim chance that the rest of the icons for MS Office 2013 will deviate from that of the OneNote and Excel examples. 

For those that want to edit PDF documents in MS Office, the 2013 suite will come with PDF editing built-in.  All that needs to be done prior to editing a PDF is locating the file and opening it, and there is no need to install third party software.

The public beta release of MS Office 2013 is rumored to be on the way within a week or two so be on the lookout for it.  You may be able to try out all the nifty features and decide for yourself if the suite is worth an investment.
