Description Mike Considine 2014-05-05 04:16:56 UTC
No spellcheck dictionary installed even though the following all are enabled: 

Hunspell SpellChecker
Libhyphen Hyphenator New Thesaurus

Standard (English USA)
business (All)
soffice (All)

as are "check spelling as you type" and "check grammar as you type"

When I click on auto spellcheck, literally every word is underlined and there are no alternative spellings available. Also, no thesaurus.

Spellchecking with F7 is the same status.

I've gone through all suggestions in the help menu and searched Bugzilla. I have found no information to fix this.

Please help.

By the way, it worked for the first month after downloading OpenOffice 4.0.1. I just upgraded to 4.1.0 in hopes that it would fix the problem. It made no difference.
