SoftMaker Office 2018 announced (beta available)


My favourite office suite will come in a shiny new 2018 version, and there's a beta available!

A few quotes from

Direct exchange of documents with Microsoft Office

Skip the annoying import and export: SoftMaker Office 2018 uses the Microsoft formats DOCX, XLSX and PPTX as its default file formats. This lets you edit your documents in Microsoft Office directly and without conversion.

With SoftMaker Office 2018, you can switch at any time between modern ribbons and the classic user interface with menus.-

2018 will delete the shortcuts to 2016 in Start! But a BETA is for testing, not for replacing! It has been half an hour since I purchased 2018 and still there is no key to unlock it - meaning I had to go searching for and manually creating a shortcut to the 2016 version!  :mad:  Oh, so many exclamation marks!

oh, the key was available in their online Customer Center > Log in > Licenses > ofw18beta. They just didn't bother to mail me and tell.

€50 plus VAT upgrade is probably too much for me to get an optional ribbon interface. But maybe there will be a sale sometime later :up:.

Like Jibz, will upgrade at some stage when the price goes down a bit.
