It’s no secret that Microsoft office suite reigns supreme in the market, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only way to go. From open-source software to Web-based applications, there are so many alternatives to Microsoft Office. SoftMaker now also offers the full version SoftMaker Office Standard 2012 for Windows as a free download. If MS office is just out of your budget, then you can go for this sophisticated office suite.
SoftMaker Office is a complete and full-featured office that comes with a TextMaker (word processor), PlanMaker (spreadsheet), Presentations, and BasicMaker (macros for TextMaker and PlanMaker). To be useful in the real world, an office suite needs to be compatible with Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents. SoftMaker Office 2012 fills this requirement competently: It not only works seamlessly with the old Microsoft Office formats DOC, XLS, and PPT, but also faithfully reads and writes files in the new DOCX, XLSX, and PPTX formats that have been introduced with Microsoft Office 2007 and 2010. With this fast, powerful and compatible office suite, you’ll complete your writing, designing and calculating in less time!
TextMaker is everything you expect from a word processing software: it is fast, reliable and compatible – simply everything you need to manage your everyday correspondence. But TextMaker 2012 is more than just a word processor. The new object mode offers exhaustive layout capabilities for easy flyer or poster design and enables you to position graphics, text frames or drawings anywhere you want to.
In an otherwise Microsoft dominated working environment SoftMaker Office performs at its best and provides superior compatibility with Microsoft Office. Simply exchange documents with colleagues and business partners, just like you’re used to.
The spreadsheet PlanMaker is on par with Microsoft Excel and offers more than 330 calculation functions that cover areas such as finance, statistics, cost analysis and many more. Form objects, filter functions, automatic summation, grouping of large spreadsheets, syntax highlighting and the new “detective” (formula checker) help to ease the handling of complex charts.
With SoftMaker Presentations 2012 you are able to create stunning presentations that will catch your audience’s attention in no time. The program offers a variety of design templates, objects, and graphic effects thus enabling you to create a multimedia slideshow that leaves nothing to be desired.
