What is LibreOffice?
Do more – easily, quickly
LibreOffice is a powerful office suite, a successor to OpenOffice(.org), used by millions of people around the world. Its clean interface and feature-rich tools help you unleash your creativity and enhance your productivity. LibreOffice includes several applications that make it the most versatile Open Source office suite on the market: Writer (word processing), Calc (spreadsheets), Impress (presentations), Draw (vector graphics and flowcharts), Base (databases), and Math (formula editing).
Great-looking, well-structured documents
Your documents will look professional and clean, regardless of their purpose: a letter, a master thesis, a brochure, financial reports, marketing presentations, technical drawings and diagrams. LibreOffice makes your work look great while you focus on the content, thanks to its powerful styles system and structuring tools.
Use documents of all kinds
LibreOffice is compatible with a wide range of document formats such as Microsoft® Word (.doc, .docx), Excel (.xls, .xlsx), PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx) and Publisher. But LibreOffice goes much further with its native support for a modern and open standard, the Open Document Format (ODF). With LibreOffice, you have maximum control over your data and content – and you can export your work in many different formats including PDF.

Free as in Freedom, now and forever
LibreOffice is Open Source Software, available for everyone to use, share and modify, and produced by a worldwide community of hundreds of developers. Our software is tested and used daily by a large and devoted user community – we’re open to new talent and new ideas, so get involved and influence its future.
Built on a strong heritage
LibreOffice is a successor to OpenOffice.org (commonly known as OpenOffice), which in turn was based on StarOffice. Many years of development have gone into the software, and it has been used in its various incarnations by millions. Today, LibreOffice is by far the most active continuation of the OpenOffice.org codebase, with releases every six months and hundreds of contributors. Also, LibreOffice uses libraries from the Document Liberation Project, handing control back to content creators.
LibreOffice for your business
You can download and use LibreOffice, but bear in mind that it doesn’t include technical support or other value-added services. If you want to deploy LibreOffice in a business, we strongly recommend sourcing a LibreOffice-based solution from one of our ecosystem partners.
Key Features of Office Suite
Writer a World Class Word Processor
Writer has everything you would expect from a modern, fully equipped word processor or desktop publisher. It’s simple enough for a quick memo, powerful enough to create complete books with contents, diagrams, indexes, etc. You’re free to concentrate on your message – while Writer makes it look great.
The Wizards takes all the hassle out of producing standard documents such as letters, faxes, agendas, minutes, or carrying out more complex tasks such as mail merges. You are of course free to create your own templates, or download templates from our Extensions repository.
Styles and Formatting puts the power of style sheets into the hands of every user. Trap typing mistakes on the fly with the AutoCorrect dictionary, which can check your spelling as you type. If you need to use different languages in your document – Writer can handle that too.
Reduce typing effort with AutoComplete, which suggests common words and phrases to complete what you are typing. Text frames and linking give you the power to tackle desktop publishing tasks for newsletters, flyers, etc. laid out exactly the way you want them to be. Increase the usefulness of your long, complex documents by generating a table of contents or indexing terms, bibliographical references, illustrations, tables, and other objects.
Writer can also display multiple pages while you edit – ideal for complex documents, or if you have a large monitor (or multiple monitors). The advanced notes feature displays notes on the side of the document. This makes notes a lot easier to read. In addition, notes from different users are displayed in different colors together with the editing date and time. Make your documents freely available with Writer‘s HTML export to the web, or export in MediaWiki format for publishing to wikis.
Publish in Portable Document Format (.pdf) to guarantee that what you write is what your reader sees. The PDF export feature in OpenOffice provides a huge set of formatting and security options; so that PDF files can be customized for many different scenarios, including ISO standard PDF/A files. Save your documents in OpenDocument format, the new international standard for office documents. This XML based format means you’re not tied in to Writer.
You can access your documents from any OpenDocument compliant software. Writer can of course read all your old Microsoft Word documents, or save your work in Microsoft Word format for sending to people who are still locked into Microsoft products.
Writer can also open .docx files created with Microsoft Office 2007 or Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac OS X

Base for Databases
Base is a fully featured desktop database management system, designed to meet the needs of a broad array of users, from
- just tracking your personal CD collection, to
- producing a corporate monthly departmental sales report.
Base offers wizards to help users new to database design (or just new to Base) to create Tables, Queries, Forms and Reports, along with a set of predefined table definitions for tracking Assets, Customers, Sales Orders, Invoices and much more.
When a personal use database is all you need, Base offers the full HSQL relational database engine, configured for single user, with the data stored right in the Base file, as well as native support for dBase flat files.
For power users in the enterprise, Base delivers native support drivers for a variety of multi-user database engines: MySQL, Adabas D, MS Access and PostgreSQL. In addition, support for JDBC and ODBC standard drivers allows you to connect to virtually any existing database.
Base integrates seamlessly into the rest of the Apache OpenOffice suite applications, for example:
- supplying address book data for mail merge in WRITER using the industry standard LDAP protocol, or common address book formats such as Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Windows and Mozilla;
- creating linked data ranges in CALC files for data pilot analysis or as the basis for charts.
Math to Create Complex Math Equations
Create equations and formulae for your documents
Math is Apache OpenOffice’s component for mathematical equations. It is most commonly used as an equation editor for text documents, but it can also be used with other types of documents or stand-alone. When used inside Writer, the equation is treated as an object inside the text document. Similarly, one can also insert these into other Apache OpenOffice programs like Calc or Impress.
Using Math, there are three main ways of entering a formula:
- Type markup in the equation editor.
- Right-click on the equation editor and select the symbol from the context menu.
- Select a symbol from the Selection toolbox.
