8 Essential OpenOffice Extensions

Filed under

OpenOffice is already a complete desktop office suite that is at par in terms of features with the proprietary Microsoft Office. However, its functionality can still be improved by utilizing useful extensions that are easily available.

Like in Firefox, OpenOffice will let you install or remove extensions without difficulty with the use of an Extension Manager.

Now if you are ready to try out some handy OpenOffice extensions, here are those that I highly recommend:

1. Writer's Tools

This is definitely one of my favorite extensions. Fully loaded with useful utilities, Writer's Tools is truly a must-have for professional and even for non-professional writers. Some of its impressive features are:Multi-format Backup tool saves the currently opened Writer document in the Word, RTF, and TXT formats.

* Email Backup tool can be used to quickly send a backup copy of the currently opened document to a specified email address.

* Lookup Tool lets you look up the currently selected word in several online references, including Cambridge Dictionaries, WordNet, and Google Define.

* Post to Microblog tool can be used to send messages to the and Twitter microblogging services.
