Features, Office The Calligra Office Suite has announced its second snapshot release. The project, which is a fork of KOffice, is building a suite of productivity and creativity applications and is working towards its first formal end-user release due in October. The project is seeking feedback from end users particularly in the area of usability of the GUI. With this snapshot Calligra Office Words is claiming better compatibility with .docx than LibreOffice, and also claims to be approaching the best compatibility with legacy .doc formats.

Give right clicks a chance. The popup menus really have improved a lot in recent releases of OO/LO, now toolbars and menus have become a secondary interface that does this job relatively well, at least in my typical workflow.


I have found this certainly to be true of LibreOffice. There is now a fair amount of functionality that can be easily accessed via the right-click mennu right there where you need it, no longer necessitating a round trip of the mouse up to the toolbar and back.

Old versions of KOffice relied a fair bit on drag & drop from the toolbars on to the document area. I hope they don't persist with that in Calligra Office.
