This article describes known issues for running NeoOffice on OS X 10.11 El Capitan and macOS 10.12 Sierra. Follow us on Twitter @NeoOffice to get notified when we fix any El Capitan or Sierra issues.

[edit] Problems after upgrading to El Capitan or Sierra?

  • NeoOffice Classic Edition:
    • Install NeoOffice 2015.12 Classic Edition if you are running an older version of NeoOffice

Note: only Oracle's JDK will work. Neither Apple's Java nor Oracle's Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) will work.
    • If the NeoOffice download or installation fails, we recommend that you try these steps.
  • NeoOffice Mac App Store:
    • Ensure that Apple's App Store application has installed NeoOffice 2015.12 by launching Apple's App Store application and doing these steps
    • If NeoOffice does not launch or NeoOffice Viewer launches, we recommend that you try these steps.

[edit] Step 2 - If NeoOffice crashes or does not save, try these steps

The following steps will force NeoOffice to create new user preference files with default values:

  • NeoOffice Classic Edition:
    • In the Finder, select the Go > Go to Folder menu item, copy the following path into the dialog that appears, and press the Go button:
      ~/Library/Preferences/NeoOffice-3.0
    • Drag the selected NeoOffice-3.0 folder to the Trash
  • NeoOffice Mac App Store:
    • In the Finder, select the Go > Go to Folder menu item, copy the following path into the dialog that appears, and press the Go button:
      ~/Library/Containers/org.neooffice.NeoOfficeSecureEdition/Data/Library/Preferences/NeoOfficeSecureEdition
    • Drag the selected NeoOfficeSecureEdition folder to the Trash
  • Launch NeoOffice

[edit] Step 3 - If NeoOffice still has problems, try these steps

  • Quit NeoOffice
  • In the Finder, go to the /Applications/Utilities folder and launch the Terminal application
  • Copy the following commands into the Terminal window and press the Return key:
    defaults delete org.neooffice.NeoOffice
