In Writer, the user can chose where he wants to check the spelling. Besides the normal text, it is possible to extend the spellchecking to "special regions" (special regions: refer to additional information below). It seems, that changing that option does not have any effect. Steps to reproduce: 1. Create a new document and enter some text including some words with spelling mistakes. 2. Insert a header and add some (wrong) text here, too. 3. Activate "check spelling as you type". The words with spelling mistakes should be underlined in red. 4. Activate "check special regions" in "Tools - Options - Language Settings - Writing Settings: Options". 5. Run a normal spellcheck with "Tools - Spellcheck...". Writer will check the content of the whole document, even the text in the header. 6. Deactivate "check special regions" in "Tools - Options - Language Settings - Writing Settings: Options". 7. Run a normal spellcheck with "Tools - Spellcheck...". Expected result: Writer will check the words in the main text area, the header (the special region) will not be considered. Current result: Writer behaves like in step 5 and checks the content of the whole document. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION If the option "check special regions" belongs to "check spelling as you type" too, then the red markups should disappear in Step 6. But even in this case nothing changes. OOo help on "check special regions": Specifies that special regions, such as text in headers and footers, document tables, and text frames, are checked during spellcheck. User mod briefly looked at the code and told me that the algorithm has only influence on the "check spelling as you type" in draw objects (are draw objects related to tables and headers?). Additionally, the result inside the code is always "false" independent from the checkbox state. So there is no effect at all. I did not check the behavior in other components but Writer.

No. And do not rely on the Help text ;-)

confirming, would be nice if this works for 3.1 to improve usability of spell checking for notes
