Description Shane 2015-08-28 12:22:44 UTC
Spell checker is not recognising any words at all - it shows errors for all words including "the", "and" and everything else. This happens regardless of the language I choose, such as UK English or US English.

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

Thanks for the prompt response. That worked exactly as it should - does a full word check now. Thank you.
