The PDF export facility that has been integrated into the last few incremental releases of OpenOffice has now been upgraded. The tool now gives the user more control in choosing how they want the resulting PDF file to be presented — for example, opening on a specific page, or opening in thumbnail view.
In the Calc spreadsheet application, a new 'Solver' tool has been added that can help users deal with complex equations.
In the picture above, the tool is shown running on the native Mac OS X version of OpenOffice.org.
As with much of the new version of OpenOffice, the chart function — used across several of the applications within the suite — has been given a visual revamp.
Icons across the suite have been overhauled to give them a fresher look.
