Great news everyone!

The new version of our online editors brings a lot of long-awaited features and improvements.

Turn off the lights

ONLYOFFICE editors now have a Dark theme to facilitate your work at night or in dark environments.

We also added a new Light theme:

But if you don’t want any changes, the Classic Light theme is there for you too.

Where to find: File tab -> Advanced Settings -> Interface theme

Note: Unfortunately, you can’t change the theme in Internet Explorer 11.

Instructions in Help Center

Comfortable work on small HDPI monitors

In addition to 100% and 200%, we now support 150% scaling.

Where to find: Adjust your OS or browser settings, and the interface will be zoomed in accordingly.

Note: 125% and 175% scaling options are coming soon!

Protecting document with passwords

It’s also possible to protect your documents, spreadsheets, and presentations with passwords so that no one is able to open the document without entering it.

Where to find: File tab -> Protect -> Add password
If you upload a password-protected file created in the desktop app, the protection will be preserved. To open the file, you’ll need to enter the password.

Instructions in Help Center

Saving Track Changes status to file

We updated reviewing: now you can enable Track Changes for everyone who has full access to the file or just for yourself.

After you close the doc, the Track Changes status will be saved. If you leave the Track Changes flag on, the next time you/your teammates open it, reviewing will remain enabled.

Where to find: Track Changes on the status bar or Collaboration tab -> Track Changes

Instructions in Help Center

New chart types to present your data

In version 6.3, you’ll find new types of charts: line to display trends over time and scatter to compare numeric values in two series.

Combo charts that help you present and analyze data from several charts are now fully supported — you can not only view but also create them in ONLYOFFICE Docs.

You can change the capitalization of selected text in a document and apply:

  • Sentence case matches a common sentence.
  • lowercase with all the letters small.

  • Capitalize Each Word where each word starts with a capital letter.
  • tOGGLE cASE to reverse the case of the selected text.

Organize your lists

In ONLYOFFICE Docs, you can create multilevel lists to organize your numbered/bulleted lists and outlines. Version 6.3 brings a new improvement — you can quickly change the list level.

Faster spell-checking. We changed the way spell-checking works — it now runs in your browser which is way faster.

Adding files to Favorites. Want to mark your doc as a favorite for quick access? You can do it right from the editors’ interface. Version 11.5 of our collaboration platform is required.

Names for anonymous users. Shared files for external access via link to several users? You won’t have to guess who is who anymore. Your guests can now introduce themselves!

New cell formats. We now have mm/dd, mm/dd/yyyy, mm/dd/yy for dates and a new currency — Croatian kuna.

Improvements in presentation editor

  • Column setting for text in a shape on the toolbar.
  • Buttons for changing text case and highlighting text with color.

    I’ve been eagerly waiting for this version for desktop and most expected feature for me is particularly dark mode. Also, I hope there are solved some bugs. Because I love your office product. It’s the best alternative for Microsoft Office.

      Hello Eric! Thank you so much!

      There’s a delay with the desktop editors because we have found a serious bug, but we hope that the app will be released soon

    So ONLYoffice is my favorite office suite. Usually I was working on desktop and I had no issue there. But lately I needed to work on a laptop with an HDPI monitor and scaling was the only reason I was considering switching. Luckily for me you fixed that and I can continue using your awesome product. Keep up the great work and thank you.

    Trying OnlyOffice again, first time in a years or two. Is looking very nice, but I can never figure out how to drag a column in a spreadsheet to a new position.

    In Excel I would click the column label (to select the entire column) then drag the column’s highlighted outline while holding Shift.

    This way I can drag column C and drop it between A and B in a single efficient motion.

    Something I do all the time, so please let me know it is possible in OnlyOffice!?

        Thanks for taking the time to reply, and passing the request on.

        The day that the function is added I’m sure will be the day I switch to OnlyOffice!
