Description Chan 2014-07-26 10:46:19 UTC
Setting at  Language setting > User Interface > Default - English (UK)
   Locale > English (UK)
   Default Language for Documents
       Western English (UK)

When using write and calc both show the same problem, it default to check spelling with English (US).  All the spelling in UK English being underline in red curvey style.  However after select Tools > Language > for selection > English (UK). The RED underline disappear. However that is not a permanent fix, it will recurre after sometime. In my use for 4 to 6 hours it appears at least 3 times.  Some time within 1o to 15 minutes. It is very irritating.

Others in spell check UK English.  Why is Timeline (combine words) not accepted and must be hypenated. Likewise for many commonly used combine words, incoming outgoing, pickup, downtime, standin, standalone, etc.

Same spell Check problem appears in Draw.

Version 4.1.2
OS: Windows 10 Home
OS: El Capitan (10.11)

I was able to replicate this bug on both Windows and OS X using the following steps:

1. set default language to English (UK) (Go to: tools > language > for selection > English (UK))

2. type words that are spelled differently in British-English (ex. colour, metre, aeroplane)

Spell checker highlights words as incorrectly spelled even though default language was set to English (UK). Notice that the default language has been reset back to English (USA) by itself.
