Love Libre Office!
Use it on daily basis 🙂
Absolutely fantastic job! THANKS ALL INVOLVED!
Tested with:
To install an extension, follow these steps:
  • Download an extension and save it anywhere on your computer.
  • In LibreOffice, select Tools –> Extension Manager from the menu bar.
  • In the Extension Manager dialog click Add.
  • A file browser window opens.
    • Navigate to the folder where you saved the LibreOffice extension file(s) on your system.
    • The extension’s files have the file extension ‘OXT’.
  • Find and select the extension you want to install and click Open.
  • If this extension is already installed, you’ll be prompted to press OK to confirm whether to overwrite the current version by the new one, or press Cancel to stop the installation.
  • After you are asked whether to install the extension only for your user or for all users.
    • If you choose the Only for me option, the extension will be installed only for your user.
    • If you choose For all users, you need system administrator rights. In this case the extension will be available for all users.
    • In general, choose Only for me, that doesn’t require administration rights on the operating system.
  • select prefered spell checking language for all text:



the only issue one currently has with LibreOffice Writer – is – if the user needs to edit very large documents – things get slow – really slow – unbearable show stopping slow – one is going back to vim kind of slow.

one is talking about a document with 14.710 lines, that vim can open up in like 1 sec.

LibreOffice writer takes… forever…

when user names the text-file with the ending c like text.c

the user even gets nice syntax highlighting. (not all black and white 🙂
