Abi Word is a excellent replacement for MS word.
You should download the OCAL with PNG thumbnails.
The zip file is 131MB, unzip it and start abi word.
go insert --- Picture, go to the directory you unzip
OCAL and click the preview picture. Select the image
you want.

Their is a down side to this. You see the images are
PNG thumbnails so they are small, if you need them
to be bigger. Download and install Inkscape for your
platform. Open the SVG file and export it as a larger PNG
file. hope this helps
