Filed under
Software

The developers of ONLYOFFICE Docs have released version 7.0 of their open-source online office suite. The new version of the online editors comes with brand-new online forms, new editing features, improved collaboration and usability. Here is a brief overview of what’s new around the suite.

The killer feature of ONLYOFFICE Docs v7.0 is the ability to create and edit fillable forms online. Based on the Microsoft Office content controls, ONLYOFFICE forms offer the same flexibility as Adobe forms but come with more advanced field properties allowing users to create model documents of various types, e.g. sales contracts, DNA agreements, questionnaires, etc.

Users can create fillable forms from scratch, use an existing DOCX document or download a template from the official ONLYOFFICE library. You can share your form with others and collaboratively edit it together in real time. Once your form is ready, let other people fill out the required fields.

OnlyOffice 7.0 Released

  • OnlyOffice 7.0 Released with Form Filling, Windowed Mode + More

    ONLYOFFICE 7.0 is now available to download for Windows, macOS and Linux.

    As the first major update to this free, open source office suite this year you won’t be surprised to hear it’s a fairly big one with a wide range of tweaks, features, and improvements included.

    ONLYOFFICE 7.0 (that’s how they stylise the name; it’s not me shouting) inherits all of the improvements in the cloud-side version the suite, such as the ability to create and edit forms (often distributed in the .docxf format). Filled-in forms can be saved as a PDF file to share elsewhere or the native .oform format.

  • ONLYOFFICE 7.0 Brings Online Forms and Big Updates for All Editors

    Fillable forms, password protection, and version history in spreadsheets are just some of the new features in this ONLYOFFICE 7.0 release.

    ONLYOFFICE is a free cross-platform business-class productivity platform designed for internal team collaboration. It’s unique in that it includes document, spreadsheet, and presentation editors in a single desktop app.

    This open-source Office alternative works with the most popular file formats including DOCX, ODT, XLSX, ODS, CSV, PPTX, and ODP, and is free to use on Linux, Windows, and Mac platforms. In addition, ONLYOFFICE can be integrated with popular sync and share apps, such as ownCloud, Nextcloud, and Seafile.

    Recently, a new version ONLYOFFICE 7.0 was announced by the team. With that said, let’s quickly take a look at what’s new.

ONLYOFFICE hits version 7

  • Lots of new toys, caps lock still stuck on: ONLYOFFICE hits version 7

    Another contender in the productivity stakes, ONLYOFFICE Docs, has hit version 7, introducing fillable forms as well as multiple tweaks for its web and desktop applications.

    ONLYOFFICE is yet another option for users seeking an alternative to the tech giants, and currently comes in a self-hosted or desktop guise. A cloud version will, according to the team, "be available a bit later."

    The first major release of 2022, version 7 is a handy update. While the word processor, spreadsheet, and presentation modules have useful modifications, most eye-catching is the ability to create fillable forms online.

    The forms can be created from scratch or built from DOCX documents and are compatible with Microsoft Office content controls and Adobe forms, the team said.

  • How to Connect Wi-Fi using Nmcli in Linux

    Why use the Network-command-line Manager’s interface? Sometimes Ubuntu Network Manager behaves strangely, and you may be unable to connect to any Wi-Fi Hotspot using the GUI (Graphical user interface). The Network Manager may fail to start, and even after manually restarting the service through the terminal, you may still have difficulties connecting to any Wi-Fi Hotspot, even a previously recognized and stored home network. I encountered same problem on dual boot configurations and standalone Linux installs, and it was quite inconvenient, particularly during the WFH (Work from home) phase that we’re all going through.

  • How to Add Comments to UFW Rules

    In an earlier article we discussed how to add comments to iptables rules for clarity and documentation. In our opinion it is a good practice to comment anything someone else may have to work on in the future. Using comments in scripting is a common practice for good reason. We decided to write a quick tip on how to add a comment to UFW (Uncomplicated Firewall) rules. I am not a huge fan of UFW or Firewalld. In my opinion they make managing netfilter harder, not easier. That is because I started using iptables over 20 years ago. I am very comfortable with it and tend to know the necessary syntax off the top of my head. That being said, adding a comment to UFW rules is much more intuitive than any other iptables front end.

GNOME and KDE: This Week in GNOME, Qt6 and KF6

  • #44 Five Across · This Week in GNOME

    Update on what happened across the GNOME project in the week from May 13 to May 20.

  • Okteta making a small step to Qt6 | Attracted by virtual constructs

    Old, but stable, even more in when it comes to the feature set, and still getting its polishing now and then: your simple editor for the raw data of files, named Okteta. What started in 2003 as a hex editing widget library for KDE3 (and Qt3), of course named KHexEdit (to be confused with the unrelated hex editor program that was part of KDE at that time), it turned into a first dedicated application by the title Okteta during the years 2006 to 2008 for KDE4 (and Qt4). From there on a small set of features was added once in a while, most impressively Alexander Richardson’s Structures tool in 2010,. Until then in 2013 the port to Qt5/KF5 was done (also to a good degree by Alexander). After that things had settled, the program working properly when needed, otherwise just left in the corner of the storage. Now, nearly 2 decades after the first lines were written, the next port is to be done, to Qt6 and KF6. And this time the actual port is just amazingly boring: changing a few “Qt5” to “Qt6” in the buildsystem (and later some “KF5” to “KF6” once KF6 is ready), adding Qt6::Core5Compat as helper library for 1-2 classes that had not yet been substituted, adding a “const” to the argument of an overridden virtual method, adapting some “QStringList” forward declarations… and done.
