AbiWord Plug-ins

AbiWord can be enhanced in various ways by plug-ins. This means that functions which are very important to a few users, but not to most, can be made available without making the program enormously large. There are already a large number of plug-ins available, and this section of the help details those distributed from the AbiSource web site.

There is an AbiWord plug-in matrix at the wiki, or community-edited documentation page, and while it is not well maintained, it may give a decent idea as to what can be accomplished with plug-ins, and what you can expect.  See http://www.abisource.com/twiki/bin/view/Abiword/PluginMatrix for that.

Note that the most commonly used (and easily installed) plugins are often packaged as bundles for your convenience. One bundle is comprised of import and export plugins, which read and write various file and component formats, and the other bundle is comprised of tools and utilities that perform various helpful tasks from within AbiWord.  These plugins are highly recommended.
