If you are looking for a free alternative to Google Docs for your group document editing needs, Substance is a great option for you. The web-based writer is much like Microsoft Word, only a little simpler. It’s easy to use and navigate for users of all levels. Best of all, because it is open source, it’s one hundred percent free!
You can invite an unlimited number of other users to edit the document with you. Users can subscribe to a document to be alerted whenever a change is made. This way, you will always be in the loop with what your collaborators are doing to the document. If you are working with a large document, they will have a convenient table of contents feature.
You can also export any file created in the application to other formats. These formats include PDF, ODT, RDF, EPUB, HTML, Markdown and more. You can also use the tools in the application in other applications because the code is open source.
