"Check capitalisation" does not work on old documents

Asked by manolo on 2011-04-04

Hi to all.

The "Check capitalisation" option does not work when running Tools-> Spelling and Grammar on both the Ubuntu and the Vista version of OpenOffice.org although the corresponding flag is activated.
I tried to:
1) check/uncheck the corresponding flag
2) rename the user profile directory in order to make OpenOffice.org create a new profile

After creating the new profile, the capitalisation automatically works for the brand new documents and for the new phrases inserted into old documents. So, at the moment, it is not possible to correct automatically the already written text by running Tools-> Spelling and Grammar.

Do you have any suggestion, please?

Ubuntu 10.10
OpenOffice.org 3.2.1
OOO320m19 (Build:9505)
ooo-build, Ubuntu package 1:3.2.1-7ubuntu1.1

Log a bug is a natural step

manolo, thank you for asking this and helping make Ubuntu better. However, there are no new official OpenOffice.org releases in Ubuntu packaging anymore => Won't Fix

Please test for this problem in LibreOffice. If using Lucid or Maverick feel free to type at the Terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade && sudo apt-get -y install libreoffice

For more on LibreOffice installation, please see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibreOffice .

Can you help with this problem?
