New Core Features
Mac OS X Support
OpenOffice is able to run on Mac OS X without
the need for X11. Thus, OpenOffice behaves like any other Aqua
application. The cool thing is, while the market leading office suite
vendor dropped VBA support and the Solver feature, OpenOffice recently
introduced limited VBA support and includes a powerful Solver component.
In addition, OpenOffice integrates well with the Mac OS X accessibility
APIs, and thus offers better accessibility support than many other Mac
OS X applications. Finally, people like OpenOffice for Mac OS X
because of its very good stability and performance. Reportedly, some Mac
users have switched to OpenOffice just because of its extremely good
MS Office 2007 2010 2013 Import Filters
In addition to read and write support for the MS Office binary file
formats (.doc; .xls, .ppt, etc.), OpenOffice is capable of
opening files created with MS Office 2007, 2010, 2013 or MS Office 2008 for Mac OS X
(.docx, .xlsx, .pptx, etc.). Thus, OpenOffice users can interact with
users still using MS Office. The various filters for the MS Office file
formats also make mixed environments possible, so that some users stay
on MS Office while others use OpenOffice.
OpenOffice now also has a solver component which allows solving
optimization problems where the optimum value of a particular
spreadsheet cell has to be calculated based on constraints provided in
other cells. The new solver component should be particularly interesting
to Mac users considering that MS Office 2008 for Mac OS X apparently
does not include a solver feature anymore.
Many OpenOffice users requests support for displaying custom error bars
and regression equations. The OpenOffice developer community including
Sun listened to these users and added these highly desired features to
OpenOffice 3.0. Thus; now it's possible to draw error bars based on
error ranges provided in spreadsheet cells. In addition, it is possible
to display regression equations as well as correlation coefficients.
Improved Crop Feature in Draw and Impress
In the past; cropping images in OpenOffice was not very intuitive. With
OpenOffice 3.0, cropping images now works exactly like in most of the
other desktop applications, i.e. by dragging handles located at the
edges and corners of an image. This new feature improves the usability
and productivity significantly.
Spreadsheet Collaboration Through Workbook Sharing
This new feature in OpenOffice 3.1 allows collaborating on
spreadsheets with multiple users. By sharing a spreadsheet; other users
can easily add their data to the spreadsheet. The spreadsheet owner can
then easily integrate the new data with a few clicks. The new
collaboration feature also helps avoid editing conflicts.
1024 Columns Per Calc Sheet (Instead of 256)
With support for 1024 columns; OpenOffice 3.1 can now handle
significantly more data than before. Previous versions only supported
Display of Multiple Writer Pages While Editing
When you are writing larger documents; it is often nice to see the
current page in a context, i.e. to also see the previous and the next
page. With the new zoom slider, it is now easily possible to change the
zoom factor. More importantly, OpenOffice Writer can now display
multiple pages at the same time. This features is particularly handy on
large monitors or dual-monitor setups.
Improved Notes Feature in Writer
In the past; notes in OpenOffice were just displayed as small yellow
rectangles within the text. This was not very intuitive and user
friendly. With version 3.1, OpenOffice got an advanced notes features
which displays notes on the side of the document. This makes notes a lot
easier to read. In addition, notes from different users are displayed in
different colours together with the editing date and time.
New, Fresh-Looking Icons
OpenOffice 3.0 got a new set of fresh-looking icons which makes
OpenOffice a lot more fun to work with.
When you open the application, you are now welcomed by a Start Center
that allow you to choose which module you would like to use, or if you
would prefer to open a document. Further information are available
through the three icons on the right side of the screen.
Native Tables in Impress
Impress now comes with native support for inserting tables into
presentations. It was possible to use tables in the past, but only as an
embedded Calc object. Beginning with 3.0, tables are embedded natively
into your presentation and can be edited directly with Impress.
Enhanced XML support and updated XSLT based filters
OpenOffice now supports footnotes, field values and headings greater
than six when exporting to XHTML. Due to a change of the default
extension to .html, Internet Explorer will as well be able to load the
exported XHTML documents. In the future, it will also be possible to
update XSLT filters via an extension to be independent from release
OpenOffice supports saving as the popular ISO standard PDF. While ODF is used
for editable documents, PDF is popular for archiving read-only versions of
New Chart Component
Since version 2.3; OpenOffice has a new, powerful chart component.
Version 2.4 then added many new formatting options.
OpenOffice can run many VBA macros unmodified due to its built-in;
limited VBA support.
OpenOffice allows to develop powerful extensions that run on top of
OpenOffice. These extensions can include online help information;
descriptive names, licensing information etc. Thus, OpenOffice provides
a very powerful extension framework to developers who want to add
functionality to OpenOffice.

though the information includes different data fields; the
text-to-columns feature allows splitting up the fields into separate
Language Selector in Writer Toolbar
