SoftMaker Office 2021: An alternative to Microsoft Office with native PDF and PDF/A export
SoftMaker Office 2021 includes three alternative Microsoft Office compatible applications: a word processor (Microsoft Word), spreadsheet editor (Microsoft Excel) and presentation creation utility (Microsoft PowerPoint). SoftMaker Office 2021 includes native PDF export support and does not require any third-party add-ons to create PDF output from any of the three applications. The font embedding, image compression, page layout and permissions (encryption) are supported. Archive your content in PDF/A format for the long-term preservation of your documents.
