I know that. Thats the way to access a document while keeping it on
the server: only a tile
or a window.

And is it possible to explain why these (nextcloud ea) only get bitmaps.
That's not something like a text, which you can edit and send back.
Are you sure bitmaps are used.
For example how can you change the font in a bitmap. It's a image
format, not a text format.

Yes that a document stays on the server is great. No edit conflicts
are there only
when the server supports "locking" of a part/tile/window of the document.
(like: others can view your tile at most, but cannot edit, and two
tiles of different users can not overlap)

Huh? I do not understand what you say. What existing running server.
You mean libreoffice, but then running as server?
