Good news, everyone!
All the new features, including digital signature, Seafile integration, password protection and data validation, are now available in the desktop version of our editors for Windows, Linux and macOS. Keep reading to find out the details.
Starting from version 6.2, you can add a digital signature to your documents, spreadsheets and presentations to verify their authenticity and make sure that no alternations have been made in transit.
To sign a document, you need a certificate issued by a certificate authority.
Note: Desktop digital signatures aren’t supported in the online version yet. If you open a signed document in the cloud or server-based editors, you won’t see the signature. If you edit this doc, the signature will be deleted. We will fix it soon.
Where to find: Go to the Protection tab -> Click Signature -> Choose Add digital signature.
The updated desktop app also makes it possible to protect your local documents with a password so that no one will be able to access them without your consent.
Where to find: Go to the File tab -> Click Protect -> Choose Add Password.
Seafile Pro 7.1.13 made a list of document management systems (DMS) that can be connected to ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors. This means that now you are allowed to edit documents stored in your Seafile right from the desktop app and even collaborate online.
Where to find: Launch ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors -> Switch to Connect to cloud -> Choose Seafile.
Download the new version of the desktop app for free (the deb, rpm, exe and dmg packages are already available, while snap, Flatpak, and AppImage will be updated soon):
