New Features

New features to boost your productivity

In LibreOffice 6.0, a new ePUB export filter has been added, so you can save your documents as e-books. The user interface customisation and special character dialogs have been redesigned, while OpenPGP keys can be used to sign documents on all desktop platforms (with experimental encryption support). Also, the Help system has been modernised to be more attractive and easier to use.

Edit documents with ease

In Writer, a Form menu has been added, making it easier to include interactive forms in your documents. New table styles are available, while the Find toolbar now has a drop-down list of search types, to speed up navigation. In addition, mail merge operations can now use tables inside Writer itself as data sources.

Work smarter with spreadsheets

In Calc, new commands have been added for selecting unprotected cells on spreadsheets. Using the File > Export dialog, you can now export a cell range selection (or a group of shapes) in JPG or PNG imported. Finally, the Links dialog has been simplified, while three new ODF 1.2-compliant functions have been implemented, for finding and replacing text using byte positions.

Perfect presentations

Ten great new templates have been added to Impress, to make your presentations shine, while the default aspect ratio is now 16:9, so your new presentations work with widescreen displays straight away.

LibreOffice online - your office suite, anywhere

In LibreOffice Online, the cloud-based version of the suite, user avatars are now supported and displayed in comments. Dialogs have been added and updated, while spell checking is now available across Writer, Calc and Impress. An interactive horizontal ruler has been added to Writer, and Calc now supports basic editing of charts.
