From your screenshots it is obvious that OpenOffice Writer shows not the same font as TextMaker. The TextMaker screenshot says the document is in Courier New, and that's what I see there. In the OpenOffice screenshot the font looks better, but it is not Courier New as I know it. As I'm not really adept either in Linux or in OpenOffice, I have no idea whether OpenOffice substitutes a different screen font for Courier New, but that's how it looks. Could you please check the normal paragraph style and character style you use in OpenOffice?

The font is courier new and the paragraph style is centered.......... Does the normal textmaker for linux shows the files better than mine??..........Would a reinstall be a better option for improving my softmaker office??

The font that OpenOffice shows is definitely not Courier New. TextMaker is showing Courier New correctly (the document is formatted in Courier New, so it should render in Courier New).

Whether Courier New is a nice font or not is a completely different question, but here TextMaker behaves correctly and OpenOffice does not.

open office shows the file in every font in a clearer manner..... Can u email me a file that works well in your softmaker and I'll try to open it in my softmaker then we can know if there is a problem with my softmaker.. I have private messaged u my email id..
