Google's free office suite doesn't offer the advanced tools you'll find in desktop software like LibreOffice (there are no pivot tables, for example, and there's no database tool) but everything. LibreOffice is a free, open-source, actively maintained and frequently updated office productivity suite that is compatible with Microsoft Office applications, including Microsoft Word. You can save your LibreOffice Writer documents in.doc or.docx format, and then either opens correctly in Microsoft Word. I've been using Microsoft office forever, and recently just switched to LibreOffice. I am not at all used to the layout and look of it. Is there a way for me to get it to look and feel more like Microsoft Office, specifically LibreWriter to look like Microsoft Word? 7.0.5 This version is slightly older and does not have the latest features, but it has been tested for longer. For business deployments, we strongly recommend support from certified partners which also offer long-term support versions of LibreOffice. LibreOffice is the free power-packed Open Source personal productivity suite for Windows, macOS and Linux, that gives you six feature-rich applications for all your document production and data processing needs. This package installs LibreOffice Fresh which is the stable version of LibreOffice with the most recent bleeding-edge features.

LibreOffice 5.3 hides a work-in-progress (and entirely optional) Microsoft Office-style ‘Ribbon’ interface — but we’re going to show you how to enable it.
But first a bit of background .It seems that LibreOffice’s devs have been working on an alternative UI for some time. The feature has been lurking behind the scenes in nightly builds of open-source office suite a little while, but as LibreOffice isn’t something I use regularly (much less poke around in) I didn’t know any alternative UIs were coming until today.
Reader James H. mailed us about it, writing: “It appears that LibreOffice will finally join the 21st century and offer an optional Ribbon like interface starting with the 5.3 release scheduled for January”.
According to its wiki page, the LibreOffice.notebookbar seeks to provide office users with an alternative (and, on Ubuntu Unity desktops at least, entirely optional/opt-in) interface. While it superficially resembles Microsoft’s Ribbon interface it is not an exact clone.
The Ribbon-esque feature “unifies all the different toolbars and groups them in tabs. It will allow more flexible layout than the toolbars, since Glade will be used to lay out the controls.”
The latest LibreOffice dev builds ship with the notebook bar feature, so if you want to, you can enable the Ribbon-like feature to see if it’s something that suits your workflow ahead of time.
Enable LibreOffice ‘Ribbon’ Interface
Again, this feature is only present in LibreOffice 5.3. If you’re running a stable series version, or any development build prior to this, you’ll need to upgrade to a newer, but less stable, development build or be patient!
But if you’re rocking a pre-release version you can try it out. How to enable the ‘LibreOffice Ribbon’? First, click through to enable the ‘notebook bar’ feature under:
Tools > Options > LibreOffice General > Advanced > Experimental features
Once enabled head back to the main LibreOffice app. To enable (turn on) the Notebook bar click:
- View > Toolbar Layout > Default/Single toolbar/Sidebar/Notebookbar
Make Libreoffice Look Like Microsoft Office
There are 3 separate modes available: Contextual single, Contextual groups, and Tabs. You can switch between modes to find the one best for you through the
View > Notebookbar menu option.
