Starting from version 7.1, you can use ONLYOFFICE Docs to view PDF, XPS and DjVu files in a more convenient way. The built-in viewer now opens files on the client side and offers the following improvements:
When you save a PDF file in ONLYOFFICE Docs v7.1, you can convert it to DOCX and all other available formats, except for PDF/A. This option, together with the improved PDF viewer, allows you to work with PDF files without third-party applications.
Other conversion options include:
Where to find: File tab -> Save copy as…
Print preview. Now you can preview your table before printing, which allows you to avoid misprinting and reduce paper consumption.
New options on the View tab. In addition to the existing tools and commands, the View tab now also contains such elements as Combine sheet and status bars, Always show toolbar, Interface theme, Show frozen panes shadow.
New currency formats for cells. The new version of the ONLYOFFICE editors adds an extensive list of currencies according to ISO 4217.

Tooltips to formulas. When you start typing a formula in a cell of your table, you will see a list of all available formulas, so you will be able to quickly choose the one you need.
Text qualifier. If you want to import data from some text, now you can choose a text qualifier, i.e. a character that is used to distinguish the point at which your text begins and ends.
Where to find: Data tab -> Get data -> From local TXT/CSV -> Choose the required file -> Advanced in the Text Import Window -> Text qualifier
Ability to add and edit animations. The updated presentation editor offers a new tab where you can add and adjust animations of different types to make your slides more visually appealing.
