LibreOffice icon Complex productivity suite which enables you to create text document, spreadsheets and presentations, manage databases and draw, and offers compatibility with other major office suites

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 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.

Conclusion

Overall, LibreOffice includes a lot of the tools users need on a daily basis to complete their tasks – and considering it comes with an open-source license, one can enjoy the utility’s functions both at home and at work.

Jobs are completed in a timely fashion without popping errors or hanging. The interface is quite simple, allowing all user types to work with it easily. If you are interested in bypassing the installation process, you should know that a portable edition is also available for download, called Portable LibreOffice.
