Writer Guide 7.3

Writer Guide 7.3 comes with the latest updates for LibreOffice Community 7.3

The Documentation team is happy to announce the immediate availability of the Writer Guide 7.3.

This user guide has been updated from Writer Guide 7.2. It covers changes that are visible in the LibreOffice Writer user interface and additional information from earlier releases, including:

  • Enhancements to Track Changes (Chapter 3). More details are in the Release Notes.
  • Added details about the Print dialog in macOS (Chapter 7).
  • Updated details about Templates dialog (Chapter 10).
  • Updated list terminology in Chapter 11 and anywhere else lists are mentioned.
  • Minor rewording and replacement figures in several chapters.

LibreOffice 7.3 Community includes many changes not visible in the user interface. These changes include further improvements in interoperability with Microsoft’s proprietary file formats, including new features targeted at users migrating from Microsoft Office to LibreOffice, or exchanging documents between the two office suites. These improvements include:

  • New handling of change tracking in tables and when text is moved.
  • Performance improvements when opening large DOCX and XLSX/XLSM files, improved rendering speed of some complex documents, and new rendering speed improvements when using the Skia back-end introduced with LibreOffice 7.1.
  • Improvements to import/export filters.
  • ScriptForge libraries, which make it easier to develop macros, have been extended with various features.
