Best free alternative to Word for Windows 10?
PostPosted: Fri 08 Sep, 2017  Reply with quote

Been looking around and found link to a list online

Looking at openoffice and libreoffice mainly because I have heard of them before.

My main concern is formatting being messed up when converting between Word and alternative (and sometimes back again).

I've heard great things about OpenOffice, though I haven't used it enough to tell you if it will be messed up when converting between Word / Alternatives.

Both Microsoft (Office) and Google (Docs) have online versions of their programs. They're both pretty great, offering Excel / Spreadsheets as well as their normal Document programs. Personally, I prefer Microsoft's Word Online, because it has most all the features installed Word does.

Word online you have to pay for it, I believe. Noticed in my search that you can get microsoft office free if you have a valid student email.
I have tried googledocs with Word but messes up formatt. There is also an ability to edit actual Word documents (as Word) but you hve to convert to download .. cue mess. nuu
