Description David Vass 2015-12-15 20:49:24 UTC
I have followed your very clear help instructions for installing and checking that the spell checker ( UK English ) is installed. In every scenario the icon suggesting the spell checke is installed is present but when I type, every word is underlined with red mis-spelling lines.
When I try to pursue one of the words to the synonyms or thesaurus, no results are available.
I hope you can help.
Thank you.

The usual starting point for spellcheck problems is to delete or rename the OpenOffice user profile. Doing this sorts out a very large proportion [read: most] of OpenOffice stability problems. Details of how to do this are given in
