How to install an extension?

Once the extension has been downloaded, you need to install it using the Extension Manager:

Note: this dialog allows you to select (check boxes) the extension type to display: Bundled with LibreOffice, Installed for all users, Installed for current user.

  • Click the Add button.
  • Select the extension in the directory where it has been downloaded and click Open.
  • Depending on the extensions, there could be a license to validate. Scroll down to the bottom to activate the Accept button.
  • The extension is installing and appears in the Extension Manager.
  • Click Close.
  • Close all the LibreOffice files and the quickstarter if it is running.
  • Restart LibreOffice.

=> For some extensions, a new menu entry has been added to the Tools ▸ Add-ons menu.

To install an extension for all users, use the unopkg command with --shared option.
