Word 97 recently stopped working for me. I had been creating my posts in Word 97 and then copying and pasting them in the new post feature of WordPress.com to then be published on Second Chance to Live. I down loaded and was using Open Office 2.3, but I have found that Open office 2.3 does not format like Word 97. As a result, when I copied from Open Office 2.3 and pasted the post in the new post window of Word Press to then be published on Second Chance to Live I have been experiencing spacing problems -- gaps between the paragraphs. As a result I have been looking for an alternative to Open Office 2.3. A friend recently recommended Blog Desk as an alternative. I recently downloaded the program and have done reading on the features and usability. I did not get the answers from my reading and research in the help section in Blog Desk. Consequently, I need some clarity. I really only want to use blog desk as a word processor to copy and paste from / to WordPress and publish in Second Chance to Live.
My question is as follows. (By the way I looked in the faq section and could not find the answer) Can I use blog desk exclusively as a Word Processor as described above, without Blog Desk getting involved in the publishing of my posts on Word Press? If so, how can I disable the other features on Blog Desk, so those features will not attempt to publish my posts?
Thank you for your time and kindness.
