PDF, EPUB, DjVu — very good! May be U can add FB2 & MOBI support &… it will be offline publish system for authors… :slight_smile:

The UI font looks kinda terrible (Solus OS), while the non-snap version looks fine:

Hi! Thanks a lot for testing.

Yeah, we’ll definitely think it over.

It works well on Manjaro.

Is there any chance OnlyOffice Desktop-Editors will be coming to Snap’s competing format of Flatpack too?
The reason I am asking is that ChromeOS-based Cloudready is becoming available with Flatpack support. So Cloudready users will be able to run Gimp, Libreoffice etc. I think Onlyoffice could be a brilliant adddition there.

We are seriously considering this opportunity at the moment. There are quite many requests.

I would like to ask why not using the onlyoffice namespace, the current snap name is quite absurdly long to me.

This snap name (onlyoffice-desktopeditors) is used since there are multiple ONLYOFFICE solutions and it is needed to distinguish them from each other.
