Libre doesn't seem to import layouts as well as AbiWord does. Also AbiWord picks out more uk spelling errors i.e. both 'organized' and 'organised' are both correct but the one with the 's' is more common. Similarly both 'customized' and 'customised' are both correct but the one with the 's' is again more common. Sorry to nit-pick a perfectly laid out, stable and free program that'll still save the day when a machines down and you're broke! :)
Ahora con la versión 184.108.40.206 puedo trabajar mejor todo lo que había elaborado con M$ y se me dificultaba, sobre todo con los PPS pero Impress funciona bien, algunas cosas no las muestra de acuerdo al original hecho con M$Off pero es un gran avance.
Don't get me wrong, I have 3 pcs with Mint and would have 4 if one of my cats hadn't pissed on a nice & warm open laptop. But there is no practical use for everyone to keep saying that LibreOffice Writer is “better” than MS Word. Maybe better than Word 2003, and capable of matching Word 2007/2010 in many aspects, but not yet there. On a very immediate level, the customization paths are a tedious & redundant labyrinth. Backward stuff. The Review tools are still in a rudimentary state, and remain strangely hidden in the interface, even though I'm now able to move docx documents to and fro between MS-Word and LO-Writer keeping all the review info with no glitch whatsoever, in a professional environment. This is serious praise. Anyway, the MS Word Review layout is way ahead in features and productivity solutions. LO-Writer's proofing tools, as a whole, remain poor in comparison. I use LO-Writer in what I call the “Bauhaus Mode”, with no rule, no useless text boundaries, and no ugly toolbars. Just the basic menu. Nice. I was able to ditch Wine & an embedded Word 2007 to use LO-Writer exclusively in my Mint. That's how good it became. A simple request: if LO-Writer could create new empty documents locally, with a right click menu, that would make life easier to all those accustomed to other similar tools... and would be more intuitive.
LibreOffice is very reliable and updated regularly - I use Writer and Calc everyday for business purposes and am very impressed. Beste Office-Suite, regelmäßige Updates, nutzerorientiert, Kompatibilität auch mit MS-Office und Openoffice.org und obendrein eine neuartige Stiftung, die jedem Aktiven die Mitwirkung/Mitbestimmung erlaubt und garantiert
Great word processor. Much nicer to use than MS Word. It would be perfect if it only had synonyms in the right click menu. Pressing Ctrl+F7 and searching for the alternative affects my productivity rates. It's much more complicated than I used to with MS Word. Otherwise perfect app! :)
