I haven't got a copy of OpenOffice on any of my machines at the moment having moved on to the offshoot LibreOffice which is developing much faster. Here's some questions;

Do these grey marks print? Are they evident on other documents you open at the same time? If so I'm thinking aloud the lines that the document has the option to show non printing paragraph marks and formatting. On the toolbars look for the Backward "P" symbol likened by some to a musical clef. That toggles these on/off.

Yes when printed they do show.The grey marks on;y show on certain documents that I get,Maybe the person sending them has a format setup.Don't know what office software he's using,It is a bit of a pain in the bum really deleting all those grey lines. Thanks for reply.

Do you mean Rich Text Format (.RTF) or Word Document (.doc)

Which version of OpenOffice are you working with. I'll load it onto a spare machine and try to fathom it out.

''Do you mean Rich Text'' Yes that's what it is,I notice your name Taff are you a welshman?,I am. Thanks.

Yes I am Welsh. But let's not go there for a moment.

Give me the OpenOffice version you are working with. And then I will load it up on a spare machine and sort it for you.
