NeoOffice is a complete office suite for OS X. With NeoOffice, users can view, edit, and save OpenOffice documents, PDF files, and most Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents.
NeoOffice 3.x and OpenOffice users: before you buy NeoOffice, we recommend that you click on the “NeoOffice support” link and read the list of changes.
NeoOffice is extremely stable and thousands of users use it daily. The NeoOffice engineers created NeoOffice in 2003 when they made OpenOffice run natively on OS X for the first time. Since then, the NeoOffice engineers have continually added improvements to NeoOffice that users will not find in OpenOffice such as:
- Open Calc or Impress instead of Writer at launch using the NeoOffice > Open at Launch menu
- OS X Versions
- Native OS X grammar checking
- Native OS X text highlighting
- Native file locking support for local and networked volumes
- OS X Services support
- Native floating tool windows
- Adds support for OS X's native "speak selected text" feature. With this new feature, NeoOffice speaks your document's selected text when you press OS X's "speak selected text" key shortcut.
- When opening a new document while in full screen mode, the new document window would be displayed as a normal window instead of a full screen window
- After closing a full screen document window, in certain cases all windows would not be visible and only the active document's menubar would be visible
- When in a Calc document, merged cells could not be selected using the Shift and arrow keys
- When in a Calc document, editing a cell that has been scrolled off the edge of the document window would cause the cell's formula to be drawn in the wrong position
- When in a Calc document, the NeoOffice > Services menu would use text from the last selected combobox instead of the currently selected cell
- When in a Writer document, the NeoOffice > Services menu would use the last selected text even after unselecting all text
OS X 10.8 or later
