Subject Re: Scooter's Rant of the month

Some questions:
      Which dictionary does not work? What language and country? AOO has several dictionaries.
      When you open writer, is the icon containing an ABC with a wavy line below the letters
      If you have some misspelled words in a document, what happens if you click this icon?
      What happens if you click it again?
      Tools > Options > Language Settings > Writing Aids. What is listed as the language
      What is listed in the user-defined dictionaries?
      What is checked in the Options list?
      Right click a work in an open document. Select Character from the context menu. What
do you see in the 
box under Language? Does it have an ABC and check?
