Microsoft Office

Specifies the settings for importing and exporting Microsoft Office and other documents.


Choose - Load/Save - Microsoft Office.

Embedded Objects

The Embedded Objects section specifies how to import and export Microsoft Office or other OLE objects.

These settings are valid when no Microsoft or other OLE server exists (for example, in UNIX) or when there is no LibreOffice OLE server ready for editing the OLE objects.

若針對內嵌式物件啟用 OLE 伺服器,則會使用 OLE 伺服器處理物件。

若未針對 MathType 物件啟用任何 OLE 伺服器,則內嵌式 MathType 物件會轉換成 LibreOffice Math 物件。在此轉換中,內嵌式 MathType 物件不可超過 MathType 3.1 規格。

[L] and [S] Columns

The [L] and [S] checkbox displays the entries for the pair of OLE objects that can be converted when loading into LibreOffice [L] and/or when saving into a Microsoft format [S].

Mark the box in the [L] column in front of the entry if a Microsoft or other OLE object is to be converted into the specified LibreOffice OLE object when a Microsoft or other document is loaded into LibreOffice.

若想在將文件以 Microsoft 檔案格式將一個 LibreOffice OLE 物件轉換成已命名的 Microsoft OLE 物件,則選取這個條目前 [S] 欄的欄位。

Character Highlighting

Microsoft Office has two character attributes similar to LibreOffice character highlighting. Use this control to select the attribute, highlighting or shading, that LibreOffice should use when exporting LibreOffice character highlighting to Microsoft Office file formats.

Highlighting exports the closest match between a LibreOffice highlighting color and one of the 16 Microsoft highlighting colors, using the Office character attribute that makes it easy for Office users to edit with the highlighting tool in Office applications. This is the default setting in LibreOffice 5.0 to 6.4.

Shading exports all RGB colors to the other Office character attribute. This preserves color fidelity between LibreOffice and Microsoft Office documents, but Office users must edit this character attribute with a tool that is not commonly used or easy to find in Office applications. This is the default setting since LibreOffice 7.0.


The "compatibility" filter in the Character Highlighting Color dialog provides the Microsoft Office highlighting colors. Use those colors and choose Export as: Highlighting if you want both color fidelity and ease of editing for Office users.

Lock files

Mark this checkbox to generate a Microsoft Office lock file in addition to LibreOffice own lock file. Lock files signal to applications that a resource or file should not be used until the lock is released.


LibreOffice can read lock files generated by Microsoft Office.
