Print orientation wrong - won’t print correctly
Since the El Capitan update (am I the only one who thinks it’s wreaked havoc on their Mac?), I’ve been unable to open many apps, including MS Word 2011. I’m grad student, and this has been just disastrous. I was thrilled to find LibreOffice Vanilla, and was able to open and edit my Word docs. Easy to use, and free! I was glad I’d finally be able to get away from Office. But then, I printed one… and it came out in landscape mode. I made sure that the orientation was set to Portrait, and printed again. Still landscape. I did some web research, and tried the “fixes” others had (put print settings and document in landscape, change port settings, etc.) - absolutely no luck. I can edit my docs at least - but this app is useless to me if I can’t print documents correctly. I’ve read many reviews and complaints online about this - I hope the developers are reading these! I would gladly pay $9.99 for the paid version, with extra features and support, if the free version worked correctly. But if even the basic functions of the free version don’t work properly, I’m certainly not going to take a chance on the paid one. If this were fixed, I’d definitely upgrade my rating.
Good so far
I am excited that Libreoffice is finally in the app store… So far it seems okay. Glad to have something other than Microsoft Office to use.
Auto correction does not work
Auto correct feature does not work well in 10.11. For example when I type “->", it should show arrow key automatically. Sometime works sometimes not. Please fix this bug as soon as possible. It’s very annoying.
Does the job
I just need a basic word processor and spreadsheet. why pay for office 360 when this is free and does everything i need it to.
LibreOffice Vanilla 220.127.116.11
This version does not support Arabic on the Mac. When setting the Language to RTL and stwitch to the RTL mode, and start typing the cursor does not move away from the text. I have used LO version 4.4 and support RTL languages on the Mac perfectly. I was excited to see this on the App Store, but was disappointed to discover it does not support Arabic.
