What’s new in version 2022.1

Updated on Jun 27 2022

Fixed the following bugs:
  • When using the Sifr icons while in Dark Mode, most Sifr icons were nearly impossible to see against the color of NeoOffice's toolbar background
  • When using mail merge, NeoOffice would unexpectedly quit when transitioning between some of the panels in the Mail Merge Wizard and would fail to save the mail merge results
  • When pasting HTML into a Writer document, NeoOffice would sometimes crash
  • When undoing text that has been changed using the Chinese conversion dialog, LibreOffice bug #91995 would occur in NeoOffice
  • When dragging images from the Finder, dropping the image into NeoOffice would fail

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.

The only fork of Ooo that is truly effective on Mac OSX. Not to take on the Apple Store but via the official website. ApacheOpenOffice and Symphony are almost as effective. LibrOffice next is painfully slow and crashes constantly ... I work on the three in paralelle on a document that contains +/- 480 pages, and I have already lost several times on my data with LibrOffice. Never with NeoOffice (or on Symphony to be precise).

Plz make new native UI instead of old UI. I think native cocoa is only way to attract more users who need odt editor. Because LO and OO are free and have same features.

This distribution via the AppStore has me a bit confused. Can one pay $29.99 and redistribute NeoOffice? On their website FAQ, under "Can I copy NeoOffice?" <http://www.neooffice.org/neojava/en/faq.php#copy> they say the following: "Can I copy NeoOffice? "Yes. Since NeoOffice is distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPL), you can copy it as much as you like and give it to whomever you want." But it seems that the AppStore is the only way to get it, and Apple's AppStore/iTunes agreement seems to limit one to sharing with family members.<http://www.apple.com/legal/internet-services/itunes/us/terms.html> So which is true? Does the distribution via the Apple AppStore effectively violate the GPL by making it impractical to exorcise ones rights under it? How does one obtain an installer so that one can install NeoOffice on multiple machines?

When they went AppStore -- I was PO'd for being abandoned. Then I noticed something. Every time an AppStore update was announced, there was yet another patch for my V3x via "Check for Updates". I am now on patch 11

Sadly, NeoOffice suffers from a serious long-standing bug (since v1 I think) that prevents me from purchasing it, in that when working on a spreadsheet for a longer time suddenly it can't be saved and the only way out of this is to start a new document, cut and paste everything and rename cells one at a time (if you named cell references and save it under the same name. The NeoOffice team wants me to pay for support in order to allow me to bug report this. How whacked is that? Open up the bug reporting, NeoOffice! It's hurting you. Even if your force quit, the auto saved versions have also failed and typically I have start over with the previously saved version. So I lose all unsaved work. This bug does not happen in OpenOffice nor in LibreOffice. Too bad NeoOffice is nicer to work with.
