In Word 2013, an App for Office opens a task pane that contains
the text boxes, buttons, or other objects that you use to work
with the app. Apps vary widely in the ways that they interact
with your documents. Typically, though, they accept any text
that you select in the document as their input, and they display
some text in the task pane as a result. You might be able to click

text, or you might need to copy the result to the clipboard and
paste it where you want it.

TIP To drag the task pane into the document area or dock it

move the pane where you want. Also, while the task pane is undocked,
you can drag its sides to resize it.
