Spell Checker is not working

Postby vickvega » Thu Feb 28, 2008 4:08 pm

Hi All,

I am a newbie to forums so please bear with.

I love the open protocal philosophy so i switched form Word to Open Office. However, i noticed that the spell check does not work. I have tried to toggle with the spell check icon, aswell as the spell check option in the Tools drop down menu. Neither are fixing the spell check.

Any Advice?

Right click on the red underlined words to see choices for correcting the spelling.

The spell check is not catching misspelled words, so no words have the red underlining? Make sure the dictionaries are installed** and the language for the text is set to the right language.

**When selecting the language in Format->Character, you should see a checkmark next to the selected language.
