Spell-checking is not working and I don't know why.

Asked by Bill Zimmerly

I am deliberately spelling words incorrectly and no matter what I do, the spell-checker won't report them as such. This goes for both this version (3.3) and the Windows version that I'm using (3.1). It may have something to do with the .odt file itself, which was created under the Windows version.

Hi Bill

LibreOffice is, of course, not the default office suite for 10.04 LTS. As far as I know, OpenOffice.org is.

So how did you install LO? Did you install the en_US dictionary?

If you installed the package from www.libreoffice.org the language packs are a separate download.


PS If this answers your question, please mark it as Solved
