Collabora App

Setup

The Collabora App can be used to provide rich document editing functionality for files hosting inside NextCloud.

  • Install NextCloud from the App Store. For this example, we assume NextCloud was installed at nextcloud.smartserver.space.

  • Install Collabora from the App Store

  • In the Collabora setup UI, provide the domain of the NextCloud installation.

  • Enable the Collabora Online app in NextCloud. This app is under the Office & text category in the NextCloud app store. Once installed, go to NextCloud Settings and select the Collabora Office item on the left pane. Enter the domain of the collabora installation.

  • You should now be able to view and edit rich text documents right inside NextCloud.

Spell check

The empty document templates that are provided by default in Nextcloud are German documents. For this reason, it might appear that the spell-checker is flagging a lot of spelling errors.

The language of a document can be changed by clicking the menu bar icon on the far right (three horizontal lines). Then Tools -> Language -> For all text.
