for over 5 years now and have been extremely pleased with it, until yesterday. I started to
write a letter and typed in a word that, when reviewing it, was obviously mis-spelt, but there
was no red line under it telling me so. I tried another word which was another obvious mistake
and it missed that too. The AutoSpellcheck button is on my toolbar, and is highlighted as
"on", and when I click on the Spelling and Grammar button I am told that everything is O.K.
I am using English (UK) and have spent the whole weekend trying to fix the problem (forums,
questions etc) without success. Can you help me please?

Uninstalling/reinstalling does not affect the User Profile, which is where the error resides.
Delete or rename your OpenOffice User Profile and start up OpenOffice again. This cures most
spellcheck problems. Details on the User Profile are given at

If that doesn't work, come back to the Forum at
for further help.
