  • Edit standard ODF documents
  • Support conversions from commercial format documents to ODF documents
  • Provide a set of official document templates
  • Support CNS 11643 Standard Interchange Code
  • Provide an issue report system, establish a customer service procedure and consultation service, and consolidate issues raised by users and solutions into a searchable archive
