Pros Tips for Extending LibreOffice

Filed under

HowTos

By itself, LibreOffice is worth every penny you pay for it. But you can make it even more useful by adding extensions, templates, and fonts. Here are some tips on what items to look for and how to add them to your LibreOffice installation.

Enjoy the Extensions

Like modern web browsers, the LibreOffice suite supports a range of extensions to expand the software’s functionality. You can find a host of extensions on the project’s Extensions page. When you find one that interests you, download its .oxt file to your home directory. Open LibreOffice, and from the menu select Tools -> Extension Manager. Click the Add button, browse to your home directory, then select the .oxt file you downloaded. LibreOffice will add and activate the extension.

Not only is our first 4.0.0 alpha release here – but it is here relatively on schedule. If all goes according to plan we will have something stamped as stable before September hits. I would just like to be clear that this is far from a polished / finished product. I would encourage anyone wanting to write a review to wait to do so until our stable release. If you are not someone who is interested in helping find issues please wait as well. Read more
