LibreOffice is trying a new look, Microsoft Office – Ribbon UI

The latest LibreOffice dev builds ship with the notebook bar feature, so if you want to, you can enable the Ribbon-like feature to see if it’s something that suits your workflow ahead of time.

Feature is only present in LibreOffice 5.3 and you can enable it with the following

  • Tools > Options > LibreOffice General > Advanced > Experimental features

Once enabled head back to the main LibreOffice app. To enable (turn on) the Notebook bar click:

  • View > Toolbar Layout > Default/Single toolbar/Sidebar/Notebookbar

Three modes available: Contextual single, Contextual groups, and Tabs.
