ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors for Christmas. With more features and connection to ownCloud/Nextcloud

All we want for Christmas is you!

To prove that, we’ve prepared one more present for Christmas – the new version of desktop app. It combines two things we believe you value most – functionality and interoperability.

Bookmarks, automatic numbering, forms, and more

We brought our most recent updates of version 5.2 to the desktop editors. Some hints on how to make the most of them:

  • Use bookmarks and internal hyperlinks from the References tab to quickly navigate to a specific spot instead of scrolling through several paragraphs or pages.
  • To start a list, insert a letter/number/asterisk + space/tab. Automated numbering is at your service now!
  • To create beautiful forms, explore the content controls feature. In this version, we’ve added new settings to customize the look and feel of your form.
  • Adjust your spreadsheet look in the way you want to see it after printing in the Layout tab where we’ve collected all the instruments you may need.
  • Quickly change the way the cell data is displayed: cell settings are near at hand, on the right panel.
  • When you download your worksheet as a PDF, the program will ask you to set the PDF options: current sheet or all sheets, page size and orientation, scaling and margins.
  • Easy change of the interface language in the Settings tab.

More information about the 5.2 version in the dedicated blog post. You can download ONLYOFFICE Desktop editors here.

We also fixed issues with Fedora 28/29 and added support for Ubuntu 18.10.

Connection to ownCloud and Nextcloud

You may have already known that you can connect* ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors to ONLYOFFICE in the cloud (both public and private will do). It allows you to collaborate on docs stored in the cloud right from your desktop.

Since we’ve become technological partners with ownCloud and Nextcloud, we’ve decided to add their cloud storages too. This means that you can connect your app and work on your docs stored there, just the way you did (if you did) with the ONLYOFFICE platform. To do so, switch to Connect to cloud section and add your storage address.

*The Desktop Editors’ connection to ownCloud, or Nextcloud requires ONLYOFFICE Document Server to be installed. 

Get the new version of ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors now and try all the novelties!

Any kind of feedback will be very appreciated as well as your questions. Ask them here, below this post, and we will not only answer but consider them in our next post. Ask, comment, argue!

  • This is great! Can't wait to try it out!

    I really love the notion regarding feedback at the end of the article. I'd love to participate in the ONLYOFFICE community but I don't really know where to find it.

    I've tried posting in the forums (still under moderation after months) and emailing support (canned response about no support for desktop editors).

    I have a list of minor bug reports and ideas around improvement along with general usage questions not covered in the docs.

    How do I get involved? I would love to contribute.

  • When trying to connect my nextcloud to onlyoffice desktop it tells me to "check the cloud office URL". The nextcloud is already configured with the onlyoffice plugin to a onlyoffice document server. When trying to make it connect with the ip address it goes to a timeout.
