Some of many new features

The 4.2.0 release of Collabora Online will include many fixes and a lot of new features in terms of design, functionality and usability. The sidebar will see major updates and improve working with documents both from desktop and mobile devices. The list of new functions is long. Here are just a few of the new features already included in the snapshot we would like to point your attention to.

Features

  • Table manipulation in sidebar

In Collabora Online 4.2 you will be able to access many of the options to manipulate tables in writer documents from a new “Table” panel in the sidebar. You are able to insert and delete columns and rows, merge and distribute cells, adjust height and width.

  • Handling of hyperlinks

Version 4.2 of Collabora Online brings nice enhancements when working with hyperlinks. Whenever the cursor is located next to or on a link, you will be notified by a dialogue. You can access the linked URL directly from that pop-up window with a single click.

  • Chart properties in the sidebar

Many chart properties can now be modified from the sidebar. The chart type and various other elements from the chart wizard can now be selected and adjusted there.

  • Quick / Bottom toolbar

The bottom toolbar has been re-designed. It does now look more appealing, features a new icon design, and enables quick access to the language selection and  zoom magnitudes.

  • Colour pickers

The colour picker has been added for various properties both in dialogs and in the sidebar.

  • Rich table of contents handling

The dialog with settings for the table of contents is available online now, giving you full control over all the important details while working online.

  • Powerful new function wizard

The powerful functions wizard now is available for spreadsheets online. Start it, fill in the arguments, investigate the formula’s structure and let the magic happen.

  • Conditional formatting

Conditional formatting online has been extended enormously. Apart from the direct menu choice, the full options of the dialog now allows you to add (almost) any formatting condition.
