Writer gets a completely refreshed set of color palettes, page borders, table designs and document themes. What will you create with it?
Over the last couple of years, we’ve been hard at work reimagining what Writer can do to improve your document creation experience. And today, we’re doing that again with the way you design your documents.
Meet Writer Designer’s Update 2018.
Handcrafted page borders
What better way to celebrate design than with some slick, pixel-perfected page borders? Create beautiful looking reports. Give your invitations, flyers, and other promotional materials a touch of elegance.
And to rekindle that designer in you, we’ve also added a whole set of granular customization options for page and paragraph borders with distance from text, distance from corners, and even corner radius.
And there’s more. Here’s everything new with page borders in Writer.
Play with tables
Tables are getting a major overhaul as well. Along with the new preset designs, we’re also making sure our designs adapt well to your choice of colors.
And then there’s the usability update. We’ve made it easier for you to drag and drop, insert, delete, or even select rows and columns in a table. Here’s how the new visual cues work:
We’re also introducing a few other changes in the form of table-to-text, text-to-table, split-table, and more. Read the complete list of updates to tables in Writer.
Refreshing the color palette
And now over to the most important aspect of document design—colors. We’re replacing all the existing color palettes in Writer with new brighter, bolder ones. 26 new palettes come with accent colors handpicked by our designers. This also opened up an incredible opportunity for us to play around with our preset document themes as well. Here’s a quick look at some of our new themes:

This is great, we can make a better documents, easy, fast and full of beauty. ¡Thank you Zoho!
That was the goal. We're really happy you find it helpful. Thank you, Miguel! =]
Thank you :)
Glad you liked it. Happy writing! :)
Why do paragraph styles ignore before and after spaces? I tried setting before and after space then choosing update style to reflect the selected paragraph and it took on formatting at the character and line levels but not spacing for paragraph. thanks
Hello, Tahiya! Paragraph styles do not ignore before and after spaces by default. We're interested to learn more about why it isn't happening for you correctly. A customer support representative from our team will contact you very shortly. Thanks for writing to us.=]
Thank you, Robert! :)
Love the new design, well done guys
Thank you so much, George! The team is happy to know you liked the update. =]
