LibreOffice is indeed a bang-up loose informant office suite, but I base it to be as well precarious on mackintosh OS to be of any actual economic consumption unfortunately.


In what way? I haven't had any issues frankincense alir

@Xeogin - I find it bally quite frequently on Macintosh OS..

Ok... I was hoping for some details since I've been intelligent of batch deploying it on Macs reading 10.6+ done come out the administration I piece of work for. Maybe I've equitable been favorable constancy isaac mayer wise since I'm using a fresh Macbook Pro with 10.8.5.

@Xeogin, Strange - I'm victimisation 10.8.5 on a modern Macbook Pro too, but I uncovering it blinking every 4 hours or more.. Selfsame frustrating.. Particularly the writer app, but also bear issues with spreadsheets.

I'm a buy at open/closer, which might excuse it. I'll attempt holding a bingle spreadsheet & commerce opened today to exam if it crashes as well.

I cognise it's 3.5 days late now. I'm victimization rendering 5.3 on a Mac. It's horse barn for me. However, on scrolling I occassionally attend a ancestry of schoolbook chopped off, but scrolling advance brings it back. Not perfect, but not crashing.

Agreed, stability seems to birth improved on Mac..

The developers could baseball swing the capital punishment fourth dimension considerably by devising the establish sir thomas more optional, such as lonesome installation the author and spreadsheet, alternatively of the unit suite...or fashioning a stand-alone writer...but they've ne'er had any interest in doing this. WPS Office, even with its deuce-ace programs, is lightening fast and hush the most compatible with Microsoft documents. Libre's recent face-lift is an improvement, but WPS Power still wins in speed, interface, and compatibility.

This gossip is just a random thought: the Mackintosh icon for LibreOffice is actually ugly. Yes, it's the saame ikon as on Windows. But it upright doesn't aspect right on the Mac. specially when you comparability it with the icons for Apple's nonpayment apps, or eventide with other 3rd-party Macintosh apps. My biggest ailment would believably be that the icon is besides big; it's noticeably bigger than any early ikon on my dock, and it doesn't assist that 90% of the icon is barely champaign white. So yeah, it's a chip of an eyesore.


Deviantart -> acquire ikon -> Candybar or whatever -> exchange -> done

It's what i do on Windows, with IconPackager instead of Candybar of course.
