Sorry I was unclear. I meant that you should rename (or delete) the user
folder that contains the profile. This will trigger the creation of a new
folder. OpenOffice has to be shut down to rename the folder.

Deleting the profile fixed the
spell check problem (thank you).
Did not fix Pi for me though.
I use Word to convert file to PDF and it fixed that problem.
For the product symbol, I wonder if it is taken from a Windows font that has changed with
windows 10.
I checked, when I use %PI it shoes Pi correctly
I noticed that the extra blank space before and after formulas was removed (thank you).
However, the formulas are offset below the line level, making it look odd.
Hum, ‘parameterization’ is missing from the dictionary – I’ll live
