ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors Portable, Powerful like Microsoft Office, free like LibreOffice!
"The main advantage of the Onlyoffice desktop applications is that they can be synchronized with online documents. And if I edit them offline the changes will appear in my portal version." —marinefirs (a user), (Dec 1, 2016)
"ONLYOFFICE is an interesting alternative for Microsoft Office or LibreOffice. The program has users covered who want to edit documents on a local system, and users who want an Office 365 like environment but more control over it. The latter requires some sort of server the local solution runs on though." —Martin Brinkmann, (November 7, 2016 )
" is suitable to individuals who require powerful but simple document editors. I recommend it to anyone looking for powerful tools for their use." —Adrianstar (a user), (Nov 15, 2016)

Portability Notes

  • ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors do not have portable mode. It stores its settings in Windows registry and data folders while running.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.
  • You can help by sending request to the official developer to add "portable mode" to their future release.
