    Having not looked at this for many many years... good on them.
    I feel it would be great for the devs to team up with LibreOffice though.
    Such a massive project, don't see the need to so many.

      Nice. I wonder if it compiles under x32, because it would go great in the low-power LXQt netbook.

        The only reason I keep calligra is that it has much better Microsoft format support than libreoffice. Documents I open in libreoffice are frequently completely fucked.

          Except it’s Office 365 that looks like the “hobby project” ...

            That’s normal for Microsoft Office. The formatting depends on the chosen printer, so even moving the same document between different machines running Microsoft Office is fraught.

              That may be, but it opens Office documents right. Because, sadly, that's all it takes.

                Some yes, some not, as people end up seeing. The code of Office 365 is different, it's not the same code that the usual Office uses.

                  > having all the usual toolbars on the right rather than at the top where every other word processor has them is counter intuitive.

                  As today's screens are wide, that wide screen real estate is used, instead of the vertical one. That allows managing more information (and better) when working with pages.

                    Calligra, for me, is one great project.
                    It's sad they have so few manpower and, because of that, lack so many features.

                    However they have a great code base, well design and modern unlike other old office suites.

                    About the User Interface, for me, it's the best of all and the only that makes sense...

                    Best wishes for all the developers and a big thanks for their work

                      Agree with this! Microsoft’s “Ribbon” originated before today’s widescreen monitors became popular. It is looking distinctly antiquated nowadays.
