Yes. After you have saved the file to your computer Highlight the file and click your mouse to the Select Options From here you can open the selected file with whatever program that is installed on the computer.

Can't spell check graphics Jim Smile

Open Office has the ability to do all formating you stated and a lot more.

Can Open Office open or edit pdf file? I don't know try it and find out. I don't believe it can edit the files but you never know until you try. There are several programs that will allow you to read pdf files. Check out our links for a some urls to these programs.

Can Open Office open a jpg file? Use an Imaging program, like Gimp or Paint, instead.

Any questions or ideas appreciated
thanks jim s.
