Tis OT i know, but fwiw, given you two went there...
OnlyOffice evaluation 5/5/17
CONCLUSION: Don't like it, not interested in using it.
Unusual UI, kinda like a browser window with all its applications [Document, Spreadsheet, Presentation] opening their respective docs in an ever-increasing tabs-row. Cannot break any tabs out of this window, hence tis impossible to simultaneously view more than 1 file at the time... WEIRD!
No personalisation capabilities, minimal customisation capabilities.
Minimal right-click context menus.
Weird non-editable Toolbar, fully icon-based. This is arguably the worst of all worlds; clearly not a Ribbon [which i want to have], but also not even as powerful as a traditional Menubar, & visually hectic & confusing.
Document pgm ignores my existing documents' hyperlinks to bookmarks.
Document pgm provides no way to view twin pages or other complex views.
Spreadsheet pgm lets me edit Comments but not format, resize or reposition them [& loses all pre-existing formatting].
Spreadsheet pgm has a bad time working with my larger existing files that are dates- & charts-heavy. I would need to make various repairs.
Spreadsheet pgm ignores my cell Validation & Pick-Lists.
Didn't even bother testing the Ppt pgm, given the severe issues of the other pgms.
2019/07/07 - 15:18: Briefly reinstalled it today from AUR for quick re-evaluation.
- Still apparently valid from before = #1, 2, 3, 4.
- Didn't bother retesting >#4.
- Additionally discovered today that OO refuses to launch in Firejail unless used with the weakening option
--noprofile, ie, certainly cannot use with my mandatory
- IMO OO remains extremely blech.
