    I was going to also suggest the free online version of Microsoft Word. You can access it via the logon page for OneDrive. Once you are logged in, under New at the top will be a drop down to make a Microsoft Word file.

    I would give this a try and see if you get the functionality you need. It's compatible with nearly everybody and it's Microsoft Word which most people are familiar with.

    Will it open my OpenOffice files?

    Depends upon how you saved them, if using .odt maybe but they could have been saved as .doc or .docx by OpenOffice, a choice that could be made. Same for LibreOffice. I just checked my Word 15 [part of Office 2013 suite] and it shows .odt as a format it can open.

    Open Office? Just disable any spell checking etc, no red lines then
    Options
    Language Settings
    Writing Aids
    You can disable checking of anything there

    Use the Ignore all dictionary
    And untick the check options you don't require.

    I downloaded LibreOffice and so far it's working perfectly. Thanks to all for your kind assistance.
