LibreOffice is a handy package that comes with 6 easy-to-use applications for you to use at your office or at home, whether you are a professional or a beginner. You will be able to complete your office tasks by creating professional presentations and diagrams, building database files, displaying scientific equations, etc.

You can install this program in two ways: choosing the "Typical" installation where you will get all main components on your computer, or using the "Custom" one which allows you to select and install only the tools you need. Therefore, if you opt for a custom install, you will definitely save some time and space on your hard drive.

The interface is simple and fully customizable. You can easily add or delete entries from the menus, annex commands within the toolbar and assign actions to any event.

You will find this suite very useful due to the fact that with its powerful utilities you can easily write/edit texts, build diagrams and multimedia presentations, display mathematical equations or you can create a database file.

This software comes with a neat PDF creator, which allows you to easily build a presentation from scratch (or using an available template) or open an existing one and edit it. You will be able to choose from thousands of backgrounds, add effects to slide transitions, select an output medium (original, screen, slide,etc.) and many other actions.

An advantage of using this package, besides its handy tools, is the fact that it is free for you to use as long as you want.

Briefly, it's surely worth trying LibreOffice, an advanced and powerful suite that will help you simplify your office tasks.
