ONLYOFFICE 7.2 comes with all the latest online version changesas well as a few “unique features” exclusive to desktop editors, including automatic light/dark mode on Windows and macOS (the feature is present on Linux builds but does not, in my testing, do what it should).

Such as? Well, the new version of Document has ligature bracket in text files; lets you easily insert the current title into a table of contents; and add a new “Titles” panel to the main toolbar (replacing the navigation panel). The conversion of .pdf, .djvu and .xps documents to .docx is also said to have improved.

The first now offers the possibility to search in integrated forms and new types of fields; the latter lets you change rows and columns for charts, highlight row numbers for filters, and add a new pivot table option to automatically adjust column widths on update .
