LibreOffice Writer – Supported File Formats

LibreOffice uses the Open Document Format (ODF) as its primary supported file format. ODF is a fully open and ISO standardized file format that gives you the guarantee of never losing access to your data.

One of the primary benefits of ODF files is that other open-source or proprietary software can easily implement support for them without the need for complicated licensing. When it comes to LibreOffice Writer, it’s compatible with a wide range of document formats, even including the Microsoft Word’s (.doc, .docx).

This tutorial shows the complete list of supported file formats by the LibreOffice Writer.
