The spellchecker doesn't check values in fields.

- Select: Insert-Field-Functions-InputField
- Insert Field
- Change Field Value to 'doocument' in document
- Select: Tools-Spellcheck-Check

- The spellcheck is complete

The Issue was replicable on Oo 1.1.1 and 1.1.4 on both Windows XP platform and 
Redhat linux 9.
The spell checker is not capable of checking input field values in any 
The follow up testing was performed for the Input list values as well and the 
problem was consistent with them too.

It never did. Thus it is no defect but a request for enhancement.
Comment 3 thomas.lange 2008-01-09 08:06:19 UTC
Note: This problem should be solved when grammar checking is working. And that
is planned for OOo 3.0. Thus setting target accordingly.
Comment 4 Martin Hollmichel 2008-06-12 09:49:24 UTC
@tl: any news for this for 3.0 ?
Comment 5 thomas.lange 2008-06-12 10:22:08 UTC
TL: Nope. No news. Spell checking still does not check field. Even if it would
allow for it the problem will be how to change the field if sth. was misspelled...

Still being occupied with grammar checking framework.
Comment 6 thomas.lange 2008-06-20 08:55:58 UTC
The API and process for spell checking needs to be changed...
Can't be fixed in time for OOo 3.0 anymore. 
Comment 7 thomas.lange 2009-01-19 14:53:32 UTC
No time left to fix this for OOo 3.1 because of other issues.
