Alternative Office Suite compatible with Microsoft Office
Release Date: 12-07-12
As Microsoft Office is the most widely used Office productivity suite, when choosing alternative office suites, it's important to consider their compatibility with MS document formats and the consistency of document layouts.
Here in this article we will focus on Kingsoft Office, which is an office suite alternative to Microsoft Office. Let's see whether Kingsoft Office is compatible with Microsoft Office, and if the document layout in both office suites are consistent.
Kingsoft Office has three components, Writer, Spreadsheets and Presentation, similar to MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
File Compatibility and Interoperability with Microsoft Office
Input file formats: PowerPoint (97/2000/2003/2007/2010) .ppt, .pptx, .pps, .pot, .dps and .dpt formats
Output file formats: PowerPoint (97/2000/2003) .ppt, .pps, .pot, .dps and .dpt format.
Although Kingsoft Office can not save documents as *.docx, *.pptx or *.xlsx, it can open files in these formats and display exactly the same document layout as in MS Office.
Consistency of Document Layout
Open a 157-page word document (in *.docx format) with Kingsoft Writer and Microsoft Word 2007:
The number of pages are totally the same, which means the page margin, line spacing, character spacing, picture and all the content in the document are displayed according to the same parameters.
When we tried to open the same document with other word processors, like OpenOffice.org Writer, the number of pages changed to 184. In this respect we can clearly see that different word processors usually apply different layout standard. However, Kingsoft Writer keeps the same with MS Word.
Similar with Spreadsheets / Presentation, when we open *.xls / *.xlsx / *.ppt / *.pptx files created with Microsoft Excel / PowerPoint with corresponding Kingsoft programs, the layout and functions are successfully inherited and displayed.
Conclusion: By installing Kingsoft Office, when you send or receive documents, you don't need to worry about file compatibility and layout issues. You can open Microsoft Office documents with Kingsoft Office, and others can open your documents created with Kingsoft Office with their MS Office.
