A new version of OnlyOffice Desktop Editors, an open source office suite for Windows, macOS and Linux, is now available to download.
OnlyOffice Desktop Editors 5.5 picks up features introduced in the software’s cloud-based sibling, OnlyOffice Online Editors, released earlier this year.
The highlight of this release for Windows and Linux users — sorry, macOS; not you yet — is multi-window support.
Yes, this collection of Microsoft-Office-a-like apps is no longer solely tabbed-based. If you want to tear out a document tab to view it as a separate window, you can. And if you want to reverse the change and manage documents in a tabbed interface, you can.
OnlyOffice Desktop Editors 5.5 also features a bunch of not-quite-so-cool sounding tweaks, like the ability to set mirror/gutter margins, add captions to images, tables, etc in the document editor; add shapes and placeholder images in the presentation tool; and use custom sorting options in the spreadsheet application.
List options (e.g., bullet, ordered) are expanded across all three apps. You can now control bullet size and colour, set different bullet shapes/characters, and organise multi-level lists.
Like the sound of all that?
