Description msowka 2005-04-05 20:54:40 UTC
Is this is an ENHANCEMENT OR A DEFECT... cause as far as I can tell previous
versions of the 2.0 code-line had this great feature where if I marked some text
with a character style "Source Text" those sections of my document would be
omitted by the spell checker. It was god-sent for my thesis that contains a lot
of code...

... starting some new chapters in the latest build 690m87 the "Source Text"
styled characters (whole paragraphs) are now checked for spelling, BOOOOOHOOOO.

It would be very easy to modify the language setting of your "Source text"
character style to [None]. This way, YOU, not OOO, control whether text
formatted as "Source Text" should be spell checked or not. And that is the way
it should be, in my opinion.

Ok, yes... that's my bad, I didn't realize that was the way to do it. Wouldn't
You say that it would be more intuitive to have a "ignore spelling" check box
"like in  Word"(TM) ;).

Or, at least make character styles like Source Text & Variable set to [None]
language by default. I think this should be done as an easy, short term fix as
most people that are clever enough to use these character styles won't have to
hunt down the [None] in the language setting... I think I'm pretty handy with
OOo but didn't find it myself ;).

Thanks for looking into it,
