I'm still having problems getting the English spellchecker to run in a localized version of LO (see but while I was fiddling around with that today, I came across another issue. If you open the addon manager, even if you drag the window across the whole width of the screen, many items have descriptions that don't fit on the screen (see screenshot here

The solutions that spring to mind include:
- making the text wrap
- introducing a length limit
- and/or making the width of the window adjust according to the length of the longest string
- ... after a certain letter count with a hyperlink

I'm just putting these ideas out there, you know I'd love to do patches myself but my brain just doesn't want to function that way :/

Also, while showing someone how to install LO and the spellchecker, having waxed lyrical about it, I got egg on my face because the latest oxt I uploaded did not work because I had filled the name field but left the extension .oxt off. This is seriously annoying, not because I got egg on my face but if the system requires me to manually type out the extension, it should either prompt or give an error message when the user provides an unknown or missing extension (in terms of LO extensions).
