Documents in ownCloud 8.1


ownCloud 8.1 delivers many improvements to ownCloud, including an update to Documents, the collaborative document editing app.

Introducing Documents

Documents allows ownCloud users to directly edit files stored in the Open Document Format, the first and most widely supported, open document standard, developed by the international standards body OASIS. Support for proprietary file formats like the widely used Microsoft Doc(x) files can be optionally provided with automatic server-side conversion through LibreOffice.

More than mere editing, Documents allows users to edit documents simultaneously with others, sharing the changes real time and allowing collaboration on documents.

Watch the video below and read on to learn about what’s new and better in Documents for ownCloud Server 8.1!

Improvements

Documents builds on the WebODF Javascript library. We synced Documents to the latest version of WebODF, which solved a number of issues and improved compatibility with more ODF document type features. The update also brings in Annotations support and some more direct formatting options to the toolbar. These include paragraph alignment and indentation buttons. Moreover, the shortcuts to copy and paste (CTRL-C and CTRL-V) now work reliably in all popular browsers, and text formatting has become more robust.

We hope you will enjoy the much improved Documents in ownCloud Server 8.1!

The article was pretty positive about the FOSS solution of… Nextcloud! I was wondering why they had not choosen ownCloud’s client as my feeling is that ownCloud is way more busy and […]
