One of the first applications that I used on the Linux desktop was StarOffice. This was at a time when I was using a word processor extensively for writing … well, everything.
Over the years, StarOffice morphed into the more familiar OpenOffice.org suite and (more recently) LibreOffice. While the suite still has a few quirks left over from its progenitor, there is one aspect of LibreOffice that I really like: it’s easy to extend it.
And you don’t need to be a programmer to do it. There are a number of extensions available for LibreOffice that supercharge it.
Here’s a look at two extensions that make my work with the suite a lot easier. While I mainly use them with LibreOffice Writer, they also work with Calc and Impress.
