Re: Content and Style

I use Notepad++ to do the creative part of writing and each part is a separate file.

At some stage you have to use Word format for Publishers and Agents.

I proof read on a Kindle via HTML import to Mobi Creator and make notes on the Kindle.

Office 2003 is last decent version.

Select desired compatibility mode in Libre Office and save as .doc. There are now incompatible .docx versions. Tell the Word users to save as .doc not .docx and compatibility for Office 2003 or similar. Or even Office 97!
