OP is not registered to the list so added the cc. I also "move" this to the ooo-user list
where it belongs more than the dev list. Please don't reply to the ooo-dev list.

Haseler, in addition to the links given by Rory below, you should remove the NZ version of
the dictionary extension. Then restart AOO.

 You need to delete your User Profile, as that holds configuration information which a reinstall
does _not_ replace.  Details on how to do this are at

not then working, you need to print out the tutorials and work your way sytematically through
them, checking off each item as you adjust or confirm its setting.  Spellcheck works with
minimal adjustment and configuration; when it doesn't it is frequently due to user misconfiguration.
