Writer has all the features you need from a modern, full-featured word processing or desktop publishing tool.
It's simple enough for a quick memo, but powerful enough to create complete books with contents, diagrams, indexes, etc. You're free to concentrate on your message, while Writer will make it look great.

This app is so easy to use and I love all of the features. I'm a super user of Microsoft office but Libre Office is #1 in my book.
For people who love the tradicional menu of the oldies Office. You can read and save using old and news Office formats (.doc,.docx, etc.)
It's free to use with no license, it's still being developed and it's easy to use.
Good to know! Been looking at an alternative to Open Office, which just keeps crashing. Will give LibreOffice a shot! Thanks!
Once a great program. The current releases are very slow. Opening multiple documents takes seconds. Saving large documents can take up to a minute. Memory settings are gone from the menu, though that only partly helped.
This is in need of some serious review. If MS Word can open 10 1MB+ documents in less than 5 seconds the trimmed OO/Star line should be more than capable.
For those wondering I have 64GB ram and a core i5 on a current iMac.
This is a sad turn of releases.
LibreOffice Writer is a powerful word processor, and in my opinion, far superior to Word. It's fast, lightweight, easy to learn and use, and can accomplish anything from simple lists all the way up to formatting a book. All of our tech how-to guides I've created for our IT department and customer service team have all been done entirely in LibreOffice Writer, with no difficulties.
Through the entirety of my education, MS Office was a requirement, and the use of Mac or Linux for BYOD was banned. Whenever a school laptop reached end of life, bam, another $200 AUD was shelled out for 'Office Home & Student'. Money my family could've spent elsewhere. Never again will I fall for that scam.
LibreOffice is free, touts greater customization and performance than MS Word, and also lacks any outstanding privacy issues or anti-competitive behavior. That, and the scummy, greedy MS tactic of releasing an updated version every year (preventing my 2016 edition from having an actual dark mode), means I cannot recommend this enough.
My only major gripe is that it looks better on Linux, especially so with the dark theme, which just sucks on Windows.
De facto alternative to non-free word processors.
Lite, and open sourced; but file support is lacking, and some open office formats are much larger than MSoffice formats
Lite [555mb for the entire suite, also uses less CPU/RAM], loads instantly. Free, open source.
MS office[~4gb, higher CPU usage / double ram usage] takes much longer to load.
MS office is expensive and uses telemetry.
Faster, private and more comprehensive than Google Docs.
For me is better and more intuitive then Microsoft Word
It is a free and probably even better alternative to Microsoft Word!
With 20 plus years of experience, this package aims to deliver top quality productivity with no cost to the user, almost too good to be true!
You should download it today and give it a try it won't mess up your settings! And it's only 213 MB.
I give it a five star rating.
