[Solved] Purchasing and using new OpenOffice

Postby Farley » Thu Jun 13, 2019 5:23 pm

Since 2008 I have happily been using NeoOffice 3.2.1 patch 8 on my Mac mini. Now I just got an iMac OS Mojave 10.14.5 and must upgrade.

What is the difference between the Professional Edition and the Mac Office Store edition besides an additional $15 for the latter?

And will I be able to use the new edition on my old documents?

Thank you.

Thank you RoryOF. I will download it but before I do, is it capable of handling my old documents created by Neo Office 3.2.1 Patch 8?

If those documents are stored in the native, international standard ODF file formats, the AOO or the LibreOffice will open and edit them without any problem.

As Zizi64 says: also, as it costs nothing you can try it and see.

It was a little tricky – had to convince my computer that OpenOffice was not malware and after getting over that hurdle was able to download it. Wish to thank you guys much and marvel at the help that was rendered from Ireland and Hungary to me – a New York neophyte when it comes to new computers. Thanks again.
