libreoffice-portable

 

LibreOffice Portable is a powerful office suite. Translated into more than 30 languages. LibreOffice is free and is open source, so you can free to download, use and learn LibreOffice. LibreOffice free for private and for educational or commercial use. It can be used without any licensing fees to your family, friends, colleagues, students, employees, and so on.

When it comes to office suites, Microsoft Office and OpenOffice are among the most popular ones due to their numerous functions and intuitive interfaces. However, since LibreOffice Portable was developed from a fork of OpenOffice, it also regains its features and ease of use, and thus it gradually become just as famous.

The application comes with several components specifically created to help users process their text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, databases and formulas. This software solution also supports the default formats of Microsoft Office, so one can easily open and edit PowerPoint, Word or Excel files.

Create text documents and perform complex calculations
LibreOffice Writer provides users with a wide range of options, including common ones (such as font formatting, text alignment and line spacing) as well as more specialized ones, like synonyms and thesaurus (provided the required dictionary files have been previously downloaded).

LibreOffice Calc is the component that can be accessed whenever users want to organize their data in tables according to the number of rows and columns they need. This tool supports several types of functions that can come in handy for creating formulas and performing complex calculations.

Present pertinent data in a custom setting
LibreOffice Impress is the utility that can be of use for designing and customizing presentations and slideshows, while also supporting charts, diagrams, text messages and multimedia backgrounds. Each of the projects supports animation effects, slide transitions and font editing, so the result is bound to match the user’s expectations.

Draw and manage databases
LibreOffice Draw allows users to create both simple and intricate designs that can be exported to common graphic formats and then integrated into other projects. The generated drawings can include tables, charts or formulas previously created within LibreOffice apps.
Users can access LibreOffice Base when they want to explore the contents of their database files or connect to external multi-user database engines (such as MySQL, MS Access, Adabas D or PostgreSQL). In addition, this tool features built-in native-support drivers for the engines it supports.

LibreOffice portable office suite consists of several components that are integrated into a common core, in particular:

  • Text Editor Writer;
  • Table Editor Calc;
  • A tool for presentations and demonstrations Impress;
  • Vector editor Draw;
  • Formula editor Math;
  • Database Management System Base.

More performance, more compatibility

LibreOffice is our latest major release, with better performance, improved compatibility, and many new features to boost your productivity. Check out this video for an overview – and then scroll down for more details…

Find your way around

In LibreOffice, a new popup window under the Help menu lets you find other features in the menu just by typing. Need a certain feature but don’t know exactly where is it? Just tap a few letters and it’ll show you!

Next-level interoperability

LibreOffice uses the standardised OpenDocument format – a great choice for long-term data storage. But it can also open Microsoft Office documents, and LibreOffice brings many improvements to compatibility here, including better handling of DOCX, XLSX and PPTX files.

Not just a pretty face

We’ve included a fresh new set of templates for your presentations, along with improvements to charts in Calc. But if you need to look under the hood of a document, there’s also a new UNO object inspector – making it easier to write macros and extensions.

If you have enabled the ‘Protect Size’ option for a shape or form control and you see a different size after reopening the document, please do the following:

  • If it is a form control, put the form in ‘Design Mode’. This is an icon on the ‘Form Controls’ toolbar. Then right-click on the shape or form control and open the ‘Anchor’ item in the context menu. If the anchor is set to ‘To cell (resize with cell)’, you are affected by the following problem.
  • The settings ‘Protect size’ and anchor ‘To cell (resize with cell)’ contradict each other. Unfortunately, versions prior to 7.6 had this contradiction written to the file in different ways, so an automatic repair is not possible. Version 7.6 automatically writes the ‘To Cell’ anchor to the file if the shape or form control is size protected.
  • To repair your file, set the anchor type to ‘To cell’. Then uncheck the ‘Protect Size’ option and set the shape to the desired size and position. Now you can re-enable the ‘Protect size’ option. Then save the file. The shape or form control now has an unchanged size on reopening, not only in version 7.6, but also in older versions.
  • Possibly the problem was created because the ‘Control Properties’ dialog contains an ‘Anchor’ dropdown field with the entry ‘To cell’, but this is actually the anchor type ‘To cell (resize with cell)’.
  • Please excuse that we did not detect the problem earlier.

Impress & Draw:

  • Display soft breaks as line breaks at fontwork. tdf#148000 (Attila Szűcs, Collabora)
  • “Show Layer” is now directly available from the right-click menu instead of having to set as “Visible” in Modify Layer… ▸ Properties. tdf#113439 (Heiko Tietze, TDF)
  • Navigation panel for switching slides while viewing a presentation. This option is enabled via checkbox: Slide Show ▸ Slide Show Settings ▸ Show navigation panel. tdf#154839 (Amin Irgaliev, Vladislav Tarakanov)
  • Objects can now be listed in “front to back” order in the Navigator, showing the top-most object at the top of the list: View ▸ Navigator ▸ Show Shapes ▸ Front to back. tdf#154604 (Jim Raykowski)
  • PDFium import now supports free text annotations, and export now supports ink, free text and polygon/polyline annotations (Jaume Pujantell, Collabora)
  • Added support to open multi image tiff files tdf#155444 (Rashesh Padia, Collabora)
  • Auto fitting text scaling algorithm has been changed so it works similar to MS Office. Text scaling now separates scaling for the spacing scale (paragraph and line spacings) and font scale, where spacing scale can only be 100%, 90% and 80% and font scaling is rounded to the nearest point size. Spacing in the horizontal direction (for example bullet size, various indents) is not scaled anymore. (Tomaž Vajngerl, Collabora)
