  • When opening OpenOffice or LibreOffice documents, NeoOffice would display the wrong fonts for light and semi-bold text. For light text, NeoOffice would use the correct font but with the font's regular variant. For semi-bold text, NeoOffice would also use the correct font but with the font's bold variant.

3.4.1 Patch-22: This patch fixes the following bugs:

  • When pressing and holding a vowel key, NeoOffice would repeatedly enter the unaccented character even after OS X displayed a list of accented characters.
  • NeoOffice would draw native progress bars significantly slower on OS X El Capitan than on older OS X versions.
  • NeoOffice would display the Find dialog with a larger than normal height.
  • NeoOffice would hang when opening an .odb file from an icon in the OS X Dock.
  • When printing envelopes, NeoOffice would incorrectly rotate the envelope 90 degrees.

3.4.1 Patch-21: This patch fixes the following bugs:

  • In compressed and stretched horizontal text, NeoOffice would compress or stretch the text less than the text's Scale width setting.
  • In compressed and stretched vertical text, NeoOffice would compress or stretch Chinese, Japanese, and Korean characters horizontally instead of vertically.

  • NeoOffice would sometimes hang when opening .odb files.
  • When using an 800 x 600 or smaller monitor, NeoOffice would cut off the buttons at the bottom of tall dialogs

  • NeoOffice would ignore most keystrokes when typing many common Indic language words.
  • Any color settings for changes in Writer documents that were set to By author or [None] would be unset when quitting NeoOffice.
  • NeoOffice would crash when opening LibreOffice HTML files that contain images.

3.4.1 Patch-18: This patch fixes the following bugs:

  • After starting a slide show from a presentation document that is in full screen mode, exiting the slide show would disable the OS X menubar until the presentation document was closed.
  • When opening a document while in full screen mode that contains linked but not embedded images or OLE objects, NeoOffice would shrink the newly opened full screen mode window.
  • When saving certain documents that contain embedded images or OLE objects, NeoOffice would would fail to save one or more of the embedded images or OLE objects.
  • NeoOffice would crash when opening certain Microsoft Word .doc documents.

3.4.1 Patch-17: The new changes included in this patch are listed below:

  • NeoOffice no longer crashes when opening some Hangul WP 97 .hwp documents.
  • NeoOffice no longer crashes when opening some older Microsoft Word .doc documents.
  • NeoOffice now asks the user for permission before updating links in a document. In previous versions of NeoOffice, NeoOffice would silently update links in some documents.
  • Opening a new window while in full screen mode no longer causes NeoOffice to hang.
  • Typing text in a full screen mode window no longer fails.

3.4.1 Patch-16: The new changes included in this patch are listed below:

  • When opening, editing, or saving lengthy, 100+ page Writer documents with tables, NeoOffice now recalculates page breaks and table cell sizes in the background in small chunks over the course of a few minutes. By deferring the recalculation, you no longer need to wait for the recalculation to finish before you can continue editing your documents.
  • When printing, exporting to PDF, or previewing lengthy, 100+ page Writer documents with tables, NeoOffice now displays a dialog if recalculating page breaks and table cell sizes takes more than 30 seconds. This dialog gives you the option to cancel the recalculation. If you cancel the recalculation, NeoOffice uses rough guesses to set page breaks and table cells and immediately proceeds to printing, exporting to PDF, or previewing your document.

3.4.1 Patch-15: The new changes included in this patch are listed below:

  • NeoOffice no longer pauses after several swipes. NeoOffice's swipe event handling code would sometimes pause for a moment if the user swiped several times in a row.

  • When swiping or moving the scroll wheel rapidly, the page or row number tooltip no longer flickers rapidly. The flickering tooltip was caused by NeoOffice's underlying OpenOffice code closing and reopening the tooltip after each swipe or scrolling event.

  • When clicking on cells in .ods files that were originally created in LibreOffice, NeoOffice would fail to select any cells in protected sheets.
  • NeoOffice would draw punctuation characters in Japanese vertical text in the wrong position and with horizontal font glyphs.
  • When querying for null values in spreadsheet data sources, empty cells would be treated as if they were not null.
  • When sending a mail merge to a file instead of to the printer, NeoOffice would fail to create the mail merge file.

  • When running NeoOffice on OS X Yosemite and exporting a document to PDF, all text in the document that uses a Type 1 font would not be displayed in the exported PDF.
