    I do a fair amount of writing and now have to use Open Office on my Mac Mini. I did have MSWord for Mac and whilst it was a pain to use, I managed to get on with it. I can't have Word any more apparently.

    However with OO, I write and edit as I go and it looks just like Word on screen and then when I close it into Documents and then reopen it it appears in a different layout and there is no editing apart from basics. Also it is saved a an .odt file.

    In the drop down box for Save As there are several options all baffling to a non techie and I have tried a few of the MSWord prompts but still get the .odt o screen although it appears in Documents as a .doc.

    Any clues please?

    It appears that you have some very basic operational issues with Rather than have the members of this forum guess about the nature of these issues, it would be enormously helpful for you to post screenshots of your File/Save As... dialog box.
