Community Assistance

Questions, answers, mailing lists, live chat and more

LibreOffice Community does not include any technical support from The Document Foundation, the non-profit behind the software. Businesses, organisations and end users who need dedicated support contracts should visit our Professional Support page. However, here are some resources to get help from other LibreOffice users...


Have a question about LibreOffice? Get an answer here! This is the English version – some other Native Language Projects have Ask sites as well.

IRC (live chat)

Join us on IRC at Libera.Chat. The #libreoffice channel is for user help and general discussion. (If you're a coder and want to get involved in development, join #libreoffice-dev.)
