Disappointed in my recent purchase.
Neooffice Writer For Mac Shortcut
- Apache OpenOffice for MacOS X Fully developed and supported since OpenOffice.org 3.3! Apple MacOS X requirements. The current Apache OpenOffice supports Apple MacOS X.
- NeoOffice is a full-featured set of office applications (including word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, drawing, and database programs) for Mac OS X. Based on the OpenOffice.org office.
NeoOffice is an office suite for Mac that is based on OpenOffice and LibreOffice. Two engineers created NeoOffice in 2003 when they made OpenOffice run natively on OS X for the first time. With NeoOffice, you can view, edit, and save OpenOffice documents, LibreOffice documents, and simple Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents.
Not a fan of my recent purchase of NeoOffice 2017. This suite of programs do not maintain file format integrity on even simple RTF files or basic XLSX files. I prefer Mac computers to PC’s, but constantly have to deal with the plethora of Microsoft file types in my profession. I want to use products on the Mac that I can trust will maintain the original file formatting when sharing MS documents with colleagues. It’s especially important during presentations with clients. I often create documents that clients pay money for and expect to use in Microsoft products they own. Consequently, I am forced to maintain copies on Windows machines, just to ensure anything I create on a Mac doesn’t get screwed up; likewise when I want to edit a document on a Mac that originated from a Windows machine.I found that Pages and Numbers do a better job in these scenario's than NeoOffice when it comes to using the lowest common denominator file types in heterogeneous systems; yet none of these programs can be trusted for always maintaining format integrity if the files use some of the more advanced features. I have to assume it’s because Microsoft makes it very difficult with their constant changes, but come on guys, RTF files? Really? You can’t get too much simpler than that. I would expect NeoOffice to maintain file format integrity on RTF files. Perhaps the NeoOffice team will get around to it on some future upgrade. In the mean time, I can’t recommend getting NeoOffice when the free Pages and Numbers programs that come with macOS do a better job in this regard.
