How to find out the version number information for LibreOffice?

To get the LibreOffice version number :

  • Select the Help ▸ About LibreOffice menu.
  • The number shows in the dialog box.
  • The numbering begins from the 3.3.0 of OpenOffice.org, version from which LibreOffice was created.
  • The 4th number of the tag is the RC number.
  • The build number matches the number of public versions that have existed including development, betas and RCs.

Short form of this question (FAQ): Which LO and OS Version?

"Version Information"

In the newer versions of LibreOffice, you can read out both the LO = LibreOffice version number and the OS = operating system used, provided that LibreOffice can be started.

Similar to this example:

Version: 7.1.3.2 (x64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 47f78053abe362b9384784d31a6e56f8511eb1c1
CPU threads: 8; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 19042; UI render: default; VCL: win
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI: de-DE
Calc: CL

You don't have to type this data, you can simply copy it.

Select Help ▸ About LibreOffice from the menu.

In the dialog that follows, click on the button next to "Version Information".

Your information will be saved to the clipboard and you can paste it somewhere else as you wish using "Paste".
