The LibreOffice suite comprises programs to do word processing, spreadsheets, slideshows, diagrams and drawings, maintain databases, and compose math formulae. It is the default office application suite in many distributions of Linux.

LibreOffice supports many third-party extensions. As of June 2013, the LibreOffice Extension Repository lists more than 190 extensions.

Cite and write for libre office

Hello. I am very sorry that I will not be able to come to the meeting regarding Libre office.
I have a problem that I am hoping someone at LUV can help me with.
I really need a Cite and write add-on like EndNote that I can use with Ubuntu and libre office. The closes I have come is Mendeley. Unfortunately Mendeley will still not work due to some issues with plugins.
The latest version of ubuntu and libreoffice are very good but the cite and write issue is the last hurdle I need to overcome before I can draw the curtains on windows for ever

Regards Colin
