There are numerous productivity suits out there which try to be a free alternative to MS Office, but this doesn't seem to be the case with OnlyOffice. It has its own unique style and it comes with many useful features. The software's streamlined design allows you to work with text documents, spreadsheets and slideshow presentations faster and easier and you can also switch between them or share everything with your co-workers without any effort.
OnlyOffice is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux and it provides full support for both 32 and 64-bit operating systems. It takes roughly a minute to download the setup package and complete the installation process. There is no need to meet any special requirements and you don't have to sacrifice too many resources.
The first thing that should be mentioned is the fact that OnlyOffice's components can be accessed directly from the same user interface. Instead of running different executables for text documents, spreadsheets or slideshow presentations, you can create such files instantly, by selecting the corresponding options, on OnlyOffice's home screen, on its user interface. Regardless of what kind of files you create and how many, you will always work on the same window, but on separate tabs.
Each editor works exactly the way you expect. When editing text, you can make all sorts of font and paragraph settings, change headings and so on. Spreadsheets can be created easily and you can also generate various graphs, charts and diagrams. The presentation editor comes with various presets, so you can focus on arranging your ideas, rather than overthinking the general design.
One of OnlyOffice's main advantages is the possibility of sharing files over the cloud. If you create an OnlyOffice online account, you will be able to invite other users to view or edit your files, depending on how you set the permissions. You can also use the cloud service to store your files and to generate share links, if you wish to share single files to specific users.
If you are looking for a comfortable and efficient productivity solution, then OnlyOffice is definitely for you.
You can work with text documents, spreadsheets and presentations on the same interface. The software lets you share your files over the cloud.
There are no serious design flaws or functionality gaps to address.
