In Office 2010, I was holding Control button while scrolling and the document was zooming in real-time.

Now, in Office 2013, it instead shows "Text Zoom: N%" (N is the zoom value, obviously...), and then immediately zooms in/out - it doesn't zoom while I scroll.

How to get back to real-time zooming in Office 2013 as in 2010 ?

Hm, I'm running Word 2013 on Windows 7 Enterprise x64 through Terminal Services, and it's live-zooming for me. Perhaps you have some graphic setting such as "Disable hardware acceleration" or something like that. – Wally Aug 16 '13 at 17:03
Thanks @Wally, for reducing the scope a bit – Tar Aug 16 '13 at 18:43

This was probably done as part of Microsoft's initiative to make their applications less power-hungry and more tablet-friendly, and is unlikely to be able to be changed without a third-party add in that overrides the functionality, if it's possible. I don't know of any such add-ins.
