New Features

Next-level NotebookBar

The NotebookBar user interface, introduced in LibreOffice 6.2, has been further improved in version 6.3. The Tabbed Compact mode, in the View menu, provides more space for your documents, spreadsheets and presentations. Watch this video to see how it works - and learn about the other new features in this release:

Scorching performance

Performance has been improved, especially for documents with many bookmarks, tables and embedded fonts. Loading and saving certain documents is now up to 90% faster than in LibreOffice 6.2.

Better security and compatibility

You can now redact your documents to remove or hide sensitive information. This can help your company or organisation to comply with regulations. In addition, documents can be exported as .dotx and .xltx templates, for better compatibility with Microsoft Office, while support for PDF/A-2 has been implemented.

Power up your spreadsheets

In Calc, a new drop-down widget in the formula bar replaces the old Sum tool, giving the user quick access to the most frequently used functions. Also, a new FOURIER function has been added, to compute the discrete Fourier transform of an input array.

LibreOffice Online - your office suite, anywhere

In LibreOffice Online, the cloud-based version of the suite, you can now view Microsoft Visio files. In addition, it's now possible to add and edit watermarks, while conditional formatting features have been added to Calc.
