ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors v.5.3: all recent features are now available offline

11 July 2019 By Ksenija 5 2,314

Good news, everyone!

The new version of our open-source free desktop suite with multiple enhancements is already available for download. Read this blog post to take a deeper look at the release.


Enhanced spreadsheets and presentations, easier image formatting, and more

We brought our most recent updates of version 5.3 to the desktop editors:

  • Edit pictures right in the doc without third-party plugins. Flip, rotate and crop them, align them to pages, margins, and slides (alignment and placement options apply to shapes too).
  • Work effectively with spreadsheets using new formulas (ASC, BETAINV, HYPERLINK) and Array Formula, Text To Columns and Paste Wizards.
  • Print selected areas of the sheets using the Print Area feature located in the Layout Tab.
  • Connect Desktop Editors to the cloud (ONLYOFFICE, ownCloud, or Nextcloud) and get the most out of real-time collaboration with improved reviewing and more intuitive Track Changes feature.
  • Save docs as MS Office Open XML templates (DOTX, XLTX, and POTX), OpenDocument templates (OTT, OTS, and OTP), and ISO-standardized version of PDF called PDF-A.

Besides, we added several new features that you’ll find useful:

  • Insert audio and video files in your presentations using new Video and Audio plugins:



  • Send your documents as mail attachments right from the editors using the new Send plugin. Just save the file and click the corresponding plugin button – a new letter will be opened with this doc already attached (available if you use Outlook or Thunderbird as a default mail client):


Localization and languages

Welcome Chinese as a new interface language:


A quick tip: you can easily change the interface language of ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors in the Settings tab on the left.

We also increased the number of available document languages – there are now 250 in total. Most of them are not accompanied by a spellchecker yet, but this is only a start. Among these, we added a number of hieroglyphic alphabets and improved support for CJK fonts with a completely renewed font engine.

More localization options are also available in spreadsheets: Български, Svenska (Finland), and Svenska (Sverige) number formats, and translation of formulas into Italian.

    What about printing direct to printers instead of pdf in Linux?

      I’ve had no problems printing to regular cups devices for over a year of using the suite.

    Would be great if the image editors in the editors (especially document and presentation) can include transparency controls (making images transparent)

    Can you please add date formats using European-style dashes instead of slashes?
    In particular I really miss “dd-mm-yyyy” (15-04-2006).

    Thank you a lot for the office suite 🙂
    It would be great to have hyphenation options available. That’s what is missing if one contemplates professional work using this software. It would distinguish your text editor from several others, including WPS office.
