Eliminating extra spaces in OpenOffice

I get extra spaces that I accidentally type sometimes in my documents' sentences. Is there a way to get OpenOffice to flag them, or better yet, eliminate them?

If you want to eliminate two or more spaces anywhere in your document, that's easy to do. Choose Tools > AutoCorrect. In the Options tab, select the Ignore Double Spaces option, then click OK.
