    3,Improves Customer Experience Improvement Program logs by including additional diagnostic/trouble-shooting information.
    4,Improves localization to make sure that the meanings are accurate in multiple languages.

    Fixes the following issues:

    1,Assume that you open an Office document from a network location in an Office 2013 application. Then, you disconnect your computer from the network. In this situation, when you try to save the document, the Office application may stop responding.
    2,Assume that you set up an email account in Outlook 2013. When you try to connect to your mailbox by using the MAPI over HTTP protocol through an authenticated proxy, you may be prompted to enter your credentials.

    Note If you connect to a secondary mailbox with a domain account other than the one with which you are currently logged on through MAPI over HTTP, after you install this hotfix package, you may be unable to connect to the secondary mailbox. To override the behavior in this hotfix package and to connect to the secondary mailbox, follow the instructions in the "Registry information" section.
    3, Adds a link to the Backstage view. This link leads to an article that explains the difference between Office 2013 desktop applications and the Office Web Apps.
    4,Assume that you have a Word document that contains Japanese characters, and has the font set to Yu Font. When you open the document in Word 2013 on a computer where the system locale is not Japanese, the Japanese characters are displayed in a different font.
    5,If you sign in Windows by using a domain user account, you cannot sign out your account from the Office 2013 applications.
    6,When you try to open an Office document in an Office 2013 application, the application may stop responding for a while if the default program for the file type is changed to a non-Office program.
    7,Assume that you add an iCloud Internet Calendar to your Outlook profile in Outlook 2013. Outlook may crash shortly after start. Additionally, you may receive the following error message:
    Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened.
    8,Assume that you connect to a highly secured SharePoint 2013 farm through ADFS. Then, you open a document from a document library, and the session tokens have a limited lifetime of 10 minutes for security reasons. After some time, the security token expires, and then you cannot save the document to the document library. Additionally, a yellow status bar appears and displays the following information:
    Upload Failed - You are required to sign in to upload your changes to this Location. Sign In
    When you click the Sign In button in the yellow status bar, nothing happens.

    Note After you install this hotfix package, you can follow the instructions in the "Registry information" section to change the time out behavior. Please visit the following page for more details: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2920734
