Subject Re: Has anyone managed to get the spellchecking working
Date Sat, 27 Oct 2012 16:36:23 GMT
When I started with 3.4 I also  had a problem with spell check. There 
didn't seem to be any dictionaries or  synonyms included. As a writer I need 
both. When I checked my work, I found that  words that were spelled correctly 
had a red underline. What I had to do is build  a spell checker by myself. The 
only suggestion I have for you is to go to the  word(s) that have the 
underlines and right click. When you do that you will find  (sometimes) a word or 
two that has no semblance to the word that you are looking  for. Below, 
almost at the bottom of the list you will find "Add." click on the  add and it 
will ask you if you want to put the word into the  dictionary. Say yes and 
replace the word with your correctly spelled word.  In this way the word is 
then incorporated into your new dictionary. Hope this  has been of help.

In fact, AOO as delivered with the official packages  doesn't need such 
extra step, it should work out of the box. I don't really  trust the work done 
by distros that explode the initial packages in other  sub-packages, that's 
why I prefer the standard way through a 100% application  method.
