Having just installed LibreOffice 3.3 Beta and trying Writer, all
seems fine at first, except that tabbed space at the start of lines
has been filled in with a wiggly line.
Also, a couple of phrases have been underlined with the same wiggly
line (e.g. "walking tour").

The wiggly line indicates the automatic spellcheck (if it is red) or the
automatic grammar check (if it is blue).


How does one switch such marking off (and why it it there)?

Those checks are done automatically - you can switch it off, if you select
"no language" for your text. (Mark all your text, go to Format > Character
and there is a drop down list, where you can choose "no language").

No sense in doing that when you can just toggle the Auto-spellcheck
(toolbar button)...

I don't use the grammar checker, but I imagine it has a similar way to
toggle the Auto-check?


Best regards,
