What is NeoOffice for Mac

NeoOffice is a complete office suite for OS X. With NeoOffice, users can view, edit, and save OpenOffice documents, PDF files, and most Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents.

NeoOffice 3.x and OpenOffice users: before you buy NeoOffice, we recommend that you click on the "NeoOffice support" link and read the list of changes.

Improvements to NeoOffice that users will not find in OpenOffice:

  • Open Calc or Impress instead of Writer at launch using the NeoOffice > Open at Launch menu
  • OS X Versions
  • Native OS X grammar checking
  • Native OS X text highlighting
  • Native file locking support for local and networked volumes
  • OS X Services support
  • Native floating tool windows

What's new in NeoOffice

Version 2017.31:

Before you buy NeoOffice, please click on the "Support" link and read the installation notes.

This version of NeoOffice fixes the following bugs:
  • When running on macOS Catalina or Big Sur, clicking on the menubar would sometimes cause NeoOffice to crash in Apple's native menubar code
  • When applying a table theme to a table in an Impress document, NeoOffice would crash due to RedHat crashing bug #1255200
  • NeoOffice would ignore any Thunderbird or Firefox certificate paths set in the Options dialog or via the MOZILLA_CERTIFICATE_FOLDER environment variable

This version also includes code backported from the OpenOffice 4.1.11 code that fixes several document signing security vulnerabilities.

Just wondering what's in this to make it worth $25 over the free LibreOffice? Anyone compared the two?

What has got into NeoOffice? If you just want to try it out, you can no longer save your texts. It would be better if you could just try it out for a limited time, like 30 days, which was the standard earlier. I really don't want to pay for it just to find out whether it works the way I like or not.

I gave this app another go and it's no longer crashing. I'm gradually warming to the idea of using this as my go-to office app. Could someone please tell me how not to delete the contents of all a-joining cells in a table in Writer when I only want to delete the contents of one cell? Every-time I depress the forward or reverse delete keys for a period of time, my cursor then jumps to the next cell and deletes contents I want to keep. I sometimes end-up deleting everything in a table.

Far better than Microsoft Office. I have never had crash problems and have been using NeoOffice For for several years. It handles docx files better than Word does and those are Word created files! Docx files created in NeoOffice are more easily imported into apps like QuarkXpress because it creates far fewer random styles within a document that you are totally unaware of until you ry to import it into Quark for instance. Tremendous flexibility in use of fonts and creating your own personal styles. Most recently finished a 2000 plus page book with notes and illustrations with the most minimal of problems. For scholars and those use ancient languages the availability of dictionaries/spell checkers in AncientGreek, Hebrew, Latin and a host of other languages is nothing short of amazing.

This would actually be a very decent office suite if it didn't always crash-on-save. In the few hours I test drove NeoOffice, I found the user interface to be comfortable on the eyes and not cluttered with too much stuff that I'll probably never use. The best thing is that it is faster than Libre Office (which makes me wait about 40+ seconds every time I save / export to ... something.) I'll stick to Libre Office for now and watch spinning pizzas all day.

NeoOffice had a reason to exist back in the early 2000's (and even before, in the late 90's); MacOS was not UNIX based, there are nor free neither open source opposition to MS Office: NeoOffice was then one of the first introduction of Unix open source app in the mac universe. It made sense, then. Now, the source from where Neo was forked, OpenOffice, is totaly avalaible on Mac OS. Plus, a second fork, with a powerfull community of developpers, including the original devs of the Open Office projects, LibreOffice, is also avalaible on Mac OS. Third, the office domination is not as powerfull as before. There are lots of solutions to type, edit, design and publish text around, that fits better the web world than print-oriented old Office suite. So, who needs NeoOffice now? And who wants to pay for it, though its siblings are free? Why devs spend their precious free time on it ? If someone can explain it to me, I appreciate.

I use NeoOffice since 2012 but don't see why its users should update and pay $30. There is almost no change from the prior version. The adoption of LibreOffice 4.4 code is hardly attractive if it does not bring concrete improvements —and LibreOffice itself is already in version 5.4. After so many years, the features NeoOffice adds to the free packages (OpenOffice and LibreOffice) are still the same. Even its site fails to describe any reason to update. For now, it is better to keep using the old version, which is quite good, or maybe try LibreOffice.
