Creating PDF with Free Softmaker TextMaker is excellent drag and drop images :D :D ... cannot do that with OO/LO I cannot fault Free Softmaker TextMaker PDF results
Fonts are totally stable and reproduce exactly
(Softmaker's FlexiPDF is beta, and requires a lot of fine tuning before I will consider it)

Optional MenuBar (laptop) is also brilliant, ribbons are real estate hogs. IMO best of all the alternative office products ... almost. OO and LO seem to stumbling, their Writer to PDF is very unstable/unpredictable

The Wonderful thing about the latest, i.e. 2016 paid version of Softmaker Office is that -- unlike all the other alternatives I've tried so far -- it really is fully compatible with MS Word. By that I mean that it doesn't spoil things like footnote numbers in Word files that are edited in it. You can work on the same file on various computers using both MS Word and Softmaker and the end result is exactly the same This is something unique, I think, and makes the latest version of Softmaker Office definitely worth buying.

Another exciting thing -- and I think this is going to make people sit up and take notice -- is the fact that there are also versions of Softmaker Office 2016 for LINUX, which now makes ditching Windows a much more viable proposition for those who -- like me -- used to be frightened off by the prospect of being condemned to use Open Office etc. instead of MS Word.

Despite being a truly free office suite, FreeOffice requires an online license activation.

I'm fine with developers asking me to supply my e-mail address or set up an account to obtain the software. But online activation is definitely a step too far – one of my main reasons for looking for free software alternatives is exactly so I don't have to put up with crap like that… (Excuse the language, but no gentler terms seem appropriate for that kind of mechanism.)

Offered for free, once used to using it, it is asking for your email account and otherwise will not continue. This is deceptive or misleading.

It is true that in Linux it shows the Word file well, but after editing it spoils its structure.

Most compatible office i could find. Very pleased with it! Tried others and this works the best. Installed Freeoffice, Libreoffice and Onlyoffice. Had a excel form for a cnc project, that has a field with a tooltip and a check for phone number length. Results were, in order: A popup appears and you can click it to close; A popup appears and you can only close it with ESC; No tooltip, no popup and check does not even exist. I also got the first word file example on the internet. Mostly fine but Onlyoffice had only part of the bullet list. Tested on Manjaro. Versions were: 4.3.89, 6.2.7.1, 5.3.5.
