OpenOffice for Mac OS X
Free office suite for Mac OS
The office suite consists of word processing, spreadsheet, presentation software, drawing software, database processing and Equation Editor. OpenOffice is available in 25 languages and can work with Microsoft Office formats. For some time now the "Apache Software Foundation" is responsible for the development.
The special thing about OpenOffice compared to other office software is of modular design and the very early use of XML as an internal file format. This OpenOffice waived escalating extras like clipart, countless fonts or complex templates. The package can be extended, however.
With OpenOffice 4 office suite gets a major update. Newly listed, for example, a sidebar (sidebar) where you can place frequently used tools and aids. This is particularly useful on widescreen monitors - here the rest of the place is ideal exploited. For this purpose, for example, worked in Writer on things like bullets, synopses, reference references and numbering. Especially when importing Microsoft Office documents now occur less mistakes.
The update to Version 4.1.2 fixes some bugs in Writer, Calc, Impress, and Base and can now work better with Microsoft SharePoint through better WebDAV support. In addition, some vulnerabilities have been closed, which are currently still kept secret. All changes and new features please refer to the manufacturer blog.
Note: The Mac OS security function "gatekeeper" to prevent Mac OS X 10.7.5 and later possibly the opening of this software. How can you use the program yet, we show you in our photo gallery.
