Description rowan 2015-12-18 13:01:02 UTC
Every single word is now underlined in red, including such words as 'every' 'single' word' 'is' now' 'underlined' 'in' red' 'including' 'such' 'words' and 'as'.

It seems the dictionary has disappeared.
This happened between logging out one day and logging in the next. As far as I'm aware I have done nothing to cause this.

How do I get the dictionary back?

Or if I can't, how can I turn spellchecker off completely so that I don't have to see everything underlined in wavy red lines?

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
