I know how hard it is trying to migrate from an industry standard piece of software to the next best thing. Software I've used over the years has either been bought out (and subsequently gone downhill), restarted from scratch (Apple Final Cut Pro) or become subscription only like Adobe products - try finding a decent Adobe After Effects alternative!!

Unfortunately a free MS Office clone doesn't and never will exist. A lot of the features of MS Office will be exclusive to that software only and quite possibly copyrighted. You either have to put up with 'all that rigmarole' as you put it or just accept LibreOffice's differences/limitations.

You have sort of answered your own question. If you know how to code from scratch then it's possible to write html pages using Writer. On the other hand, there are many programs that are built for web coding which would offer a host of time saving features.

2015-09-15 13:42:16 +0200 asked a question Anyone finding LibreOffice slow on OSX?

I'm using LibreOffice Version: on a late 2011 Macbook Pro with OSX version 10.9.5 and 8GB ram.

I have just downloaded LibreOffice and have experimented inserting images in Writer. This causes it to become painfully slow and the cpu load for LibreOffice jumps up to 80%. It is slow to scroll up and down, moving the cursor and typing text. Seems OK before adding images although not as responsive as OpenOffice. This is a shame because the way OpenOffice handles inserting and manipulating images is really awful and LibreOffice seems so much better. I don't have the latest OS or 16GB of ram but I would expect the Mac I do have would be adequate - it certainly is for the latest version of OpenOffice. Anyone else experiencing sluggish behaviour using LibreOffice on OSX?
