(I sent a previous email, but I don't think it was clear.)
Hello ~ I used Open Office 3.4.1 on my Mac OS X version 10.6.8
I just bought a Mac OS Sierra, version 10.12.5
I would like to download Open Office onto this computer.
Please tell me which Open Office to choose.
Thank you very much for your help.
All the Best,
The latest version of Apache OpenOffice will work on your Mac.
Also from the release notes known issues athttps://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OOOUSERS/AOO+4.1.3+Release+Notes#AOO4.1.3ReleaseNotes-KnownIssues
For macOS users:
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.3 will be flagged by the Gatekeeper facility in Mac OS X. This is a feature to help guard against malware on recent Mac OS X systems.
For Mac OS X up to 10.11 "El Capitan": There is a procedure laid out at the following link to allow applications not installed from the Mac App store to run. See the Mac support article.
For Mac OS X 10.12 "Sierra": In Finder, Control-click or right click the icon of the app. Select Open from the top of contextual menu that appears. Click Open in the dialog box. If prompted, enter an administrator name and password.This is needed just the first time you launch Apache OpenOffice.
Due to a known bug in Oracle Java installations of Apache OpenOffice on OSX that do not have the legacy Apple Java 6 installed will not be able to recognize Oracle Java 7, 8, and possibly 9. The work around until the Java bug is fixed is to install the legacy version of Apple Java from the following link: Legacy Apple Java 6. This will allow the portions of AOO that require Java to run properly.
As a courtesy I have sent a copy of this reply to you as well as to the mailing list. Do Not reply to me personally but just to the list at <[hidden email]> - replies to my personal email address will be ignored.
