LibreOffice Writer is mentioned in top word processing tools 2024 for Windows

I've been using LibreOffice Writer for several years now and it's been a great tool for creating documents of all kinds. It's easy to use and has a wide range of features, including the ability to format text, import graphics and images, add color indexation and marking, and more. The program works with the ODF format, which is widely used and compatible with many different programs. Overall, I'm very happy with LibreOffice Writer and would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a powerful and reliable word processor and publishing suite.

There was a download of LibreOffice Writer 6.2 on the developer's website when we last checked. We cannot confirm if there is a free download of this software available. The most frequent installation filenames for the program are: LibreOfficeWriter.exe and swriter.exe etc.

LibreOffice Writer lies within Office Tools, more precisely Document management. According to the results of the Google Safe Browsing check, the developer's site is safe. Despite this, we recommend checking the downloaded files with any free antivirus software. This free software is a product of LibreOffice. The most popular versions among the software users are 6.2 and 6.0.

From the developer:

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

You may want to check out more software, such as Dual Writer, The Leaf Writer - 9x or Inspire Writer, which might be related to LibreOffice Writer.


Thank you for rating the program!

Horrid documentation, but its usually better than the software. Terms and names are inconsistent. Writer is marginally better than "Notes" Typical case - cross-references. It's a target (in the documentation). In the dialog, everything is a reference (targets and references to them). Try to edit or delete a target in the dialog. You can't. It's just fun to keep them around cluttering up your work space, right? I can't remember a single time when I decided to use help and got a clear answer or a dialog that was consistent with the terms found in the documentation. Writer has promise, because there are a few things it does better than word, but very few. I estimate 5-7 years before writer is actually functional - Version 10 or higher. This is clearly a management problem. The object in software development IS NOT to change version numbers - or to change development platforms. It's to produce products that actually work with consistent and accurate documentation, and if you are going to support version 5, fence it off so we don't waste our time on old crap trying to figure out which version fixed which bugs. And finally don't make the cure worse than the problem. I know it keeps people from submitting bugs, which makes reporting drop like a rock, but that's not actually the objective, is it? And finally the marketing hype. If you try to write a book with Writer you'll die of old age before you get it done. But there isn't much competition out there. Scrivenor is OK, Word is as bad as Writer. Nothing works well. Nothing is well documented. If they ever get Scrivenor 3 to work on Windows - after missing every deadline for 3 years, well you see the point.
