Apart from Microsoft Word, name another similar doc. writer that is suitable for writing ebooks
I have tried Open Office, but have noticed that you can only write and save in pdf. This is not a problem, but when you download to kindle it doesn't save the page breaks and bunches it all together. Is there another free one like Open Office that works perfectly?
Microsoft Works. I use this software for everything I do, and have for years. It's very flexible and user friendly. Give it a try!
A large number of alternative word processors can be found through a search on the Web. They were a product from a previous time when WP and Word were the mainstream but not what writers wanted. They've come a long way but remain business focussed. There are even a few free ones out there that are quite good. I remember using one created by a software developer in the UK who really wanted to become a fiction writer and his creation was born from that.
For the most part these programs differ from Word in available formats. Other than specific screen writing software I continue to use Word, because I'm an IT professional with the skills to easily work with what I have. For screen writing, the compliment of integrated software from Write Brothers and such just can't be beat. Having functions like breakdown pages generate automatically is something I can't do without.
Try Sigil. You can download it for free and I think you'll find the Help file is useful. It's been a while since I used it but I recall it would allow you to create kindle files as well as epub and others.
You might want to get a newer version of Open Office. The last time I used it, there were multiple different formats it could save, including .doc. I always used that feature because I knew, eventually, I would get MS word back and I wanted the files to be compatible.

I got accepted to a few websites that I can now write articles for. One of those places is Constant Content. Thankfully, I got approved after taking a short grammar test and submitting a 250 word sample (which IMO is short). Quite frankly, I was scared I got one of questions wrong because I said...

Question about Microsoft WordIs there any way to take something that has been copied and pasted and turn it from ALL CAPITAL LETTERS LIKE THIS to regular lower case text without having to rewrite it? Or, maybe to go the other way and turn all the little letters into big letters? Thanks in advance!

I learned to use WordPerfect when it was part of Novell PerfectOffice and I still have the 3.5” floppies to provide it. I can go even further back to when MS DOS was the operating system and there was no GUI. Since that time I was introduced to Microsoft Office and as they say—the rest...
