What's new in SoftMaker Office 2018? – Part 3

Dear SoftMaker customers,

In the third part of our series we are talking about PlanMaker 2018, our powerful spreadsheet application. In particular, we will focus on a feature that at first glance doesn’t seem too new—“tables.” You’re probably wondering what’s so special about tables in a spreadsheet. This and much more can be found in the following article.


Dear SoftMaker customers:

The second part of our series deals with the new file formats in SoftMaker Office 2018. As you may already know, our new Office suite uses the Microsoft formats DOCX, XLSX and PPTX natively. In this article you will find out why we have decided to take this step and how you as a user benefit from it.

We’ll also introduce a handy feature that you might know from your web browser. Have fun reading!
