Postby Elwood M. Walker » Sat Oct 11, 2014 4:26 am

Hello,

I have this little problem. My language spelling does not work. It is originally in Turkish no matter how much I choose English, from every section, it does not recognize the language neither English or any language.

Need some help, i tried, selected, set everything english but still does not work.


Thank you.

Hi,

Do you have the English dictionary installed and enabled ? If not, use the Extension Manager (Tools > Extension Manager) to download, install and enable the "English dictionaries for Apache OpenOffice". Setting the language tells AOO which dictionary to use, but that dictionary must be available before SpellCheck can check spelling in the language.

Thanks,
SteveJ
