    Excellent piece of software - been using it extensively daily for >10 years; better than MS Office (which I try from time to time for comparison) in my opinion. I've customised the UI/icons to look more Mac-like (much like neooffice) and it looks great

    Complaint: LibreOffice doesn't know it has an update. It's a week after the update's release. - - I'm in v7.1.4.2, go to the Help menu and select "Check for Updates...". LibreOffice says "LibreOffice 7.1 is up to date." Except it's NOT. I'm looking at the v7.1.5.2 update I just downloaded from their website. The new version is dated July 17th. Today is July 24th. That's a week later and LibreOffice still has not-a-clue that it's been updated. Not good. Wake Up please!

    I love the fact that it opens really old Mac word processing files which are otherwise unreadable (MacWritePro for example). It is a large program, but that is ok. For most of MS Word files, I am still using the 2008 version.

    Thank you and goodbye LibreOffice! The latest update has made me very disappointed, because you have dropped the hyphenation in Swedish in the German version, i.e. I have the menus in German and write in Swedish.

    As far as I can tell, LibreOffice has no ability to add alt text to images in PowerPoint presentations, making it useless to anyone teaching online classes. It’s also clunky and slow to respond. For some reason, I have to roll my scroll wheel 3 times more to get the page or any of the interfaces to scroll.

    I didn't think there could be anything worse than MS Word, but this is it. It's absolutely horrible. Far too complicated and bristling with functions you'll never use. It's the epitome of software designed by a committee.

    I run several Macs, older and newer models, personal and work stations. Finally became frustrated with Apple dumbing down their iWork apps to make them more iPhone like instead of real computer productivity software like iWork '09 was. Apple also makes sure the latest iWorks suite will only run on their last two OS versions. So I decided to take a chance on a non-Apple alternative, LibreOffice, and braced myself for more frustration and a high learning curve. I was pleasantly surprised. The software is mature, works well, various apps conveniently integrated, and there is a comprehensive help utility that works better than many paid software apps. I mostly use their spreadsheet, which is fairly intuitive. It only took me a few minutes to get up and running, and then a bit of referring to the Help utility to get preferences set and learn formatting details. Overall, very happy with LibreOffice, which I expressed with a donation towards their continued support and development.

    This product just keeps getting better and better and the documentation is now much improved over the last year or so. Given Microsoft new Office paradigm of pay forever for your own file (data) access, and LibreOffice being offered free, on all three major computer platforms, but support by donations (yes I donated) they only question is "What's keep you from abandoning Microsoft Office?" unless you are able to get it for free or work for Microsoft.

    Next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesn't fail me as much as this particular one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read, but I really believed you would probably have something useful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something you can fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.<a href="https://www.xfinitycomauthorize.com/">xfinity.com/authorize</a>

    Ok very Simple. Im a builder and I do my own estimates. In Libre any Table you create can be used as a spreadsheet without opening a separate Program allowing you to change items in an instant and see the immediate total. This alone in my case blow Office out of the water.
