While many people still use Microsoft Office, which is undeniably a robust office suite, it has its drawbacks. For example, it is relatively bulky and costly; both aspects that make WPS Office Free Edition stand out. The program creators have used an innovative Sponsored Access design that enables users to take advantage of all its features without paying anything. It is a full office suite that handles word documents, spreadsheets and presentations.
Using WPS Office Free Edition
Writer presented us with the formatting tools that we were already familiar with, which enabled us to create attractive documents. The application included hundreds of documents templates and more than 230 fonts. We could also insert many other features to our documents, including tables, custom charts and images, which we could edit directly within the application.
Writer allowed us to handle such file types as TXT, DOCX, DOC, DOTX, DOT and HTM. We could share documents with others without worrying about compatibility issues. The program featured a unique tabbed view that let us see and work on multiple documents simultaneously.
The application had section navigation and paragraph layout tools that made it relatively easy to use. For example, we adjusted the layout of each paragraph simply dragging the mouse, and we could change things like indentation, spacing and location. The section navigation tool allowed us to quickly jump from one section to another.
Although Microsoft Word can also save documents as PDF, you must install an add-on to do this. On the other hand, Writer integrates a Save-to-PDF tool, and the software has a built-in PDF reader that you can use to open the documents directly.
Most of the features already described were also available in the presentation and spreadsheet applications, and each application had other features that were unique to it. For instance, spreadsheets could have over a million rows and included functions for solving and forecasting data-driven problems. The application also automatically highlighted duplicates. The presentation application allowed us to insert images on multiple slides simultaneously and easily collaborate with others.
WPS Office 2016 Free Edition is a powerful office suite that includes the essential tools as well as extra features. It is also fast and supports more than 50 keyboard shortcuts. The program’s user interface is available in seven different languages.
