Word: Draft view icon missing in Word 2013September 28, 2015
More on the Microsoft giveth and taketh away theme…
This time, the Draft View icon on the status bar. It’s completely gone in Word 2013. Sometimes I wonder if Microsoft ever polls its users, particularly its power users and those who work in the program all day, every day.
I used the Draft View icon regularly, especially when checking the styles used in a document (see https://cybertext.wordpress.com/2010/05/19/word-display-styles-for-each-paragraph/).
You can get to Draft view now only via the View tab.
Of course, if you use the Quick Access Toolbar, you could always add the Draft icon to that (see: https://cybertext.wordpress.com/2014/07/15/microsoft-office-quick-access-toolbar-productivity-benefits-how-to-customize-it/)
