I have installed Libreoffice 3.3.1 on Windows 7, and I still have a
problem which
was there with OpenOffice:

1. Spellchecking usually does nothing. It says 'spellcheck complete'
     but it hasn't actually checked anything.
2. On a few documents, it works OK i.e. it is to do with a document
setting, but I
     can't spot any difference between the option settings in the documents.
spellcheck for which language? If you want to have anything other than en-US, you'll have to install the 
appropriate languagepack and helpfile in addition to the software package. Once you've installed all those 
packages, start LibO and go to "Tools>  Options>  Language" there you can set the UI language as 
well as the default language used in your documents. Check that everything is set to your preferred language.

I think this helps.


Spellcheck for English UK. The required dictionary IS installed - or it wouldn't work
for the documents where it does work.
I believe that the problem is that for most of my documents the 'Text Language' is not set. When I spellcheck and it doesn't do anything, I can see that behind the DB which says '"The spell check is complete. OK" is another DB titled "Spelling:[None]" which then says "Text language" and the drop-down field next to that is blank. I can't use that DB to change this setting because when I click on "OK" both DB's disappear. For the document where spellchecking works, the "Text Language" field is set to English UK. So I need to know how to change the "Text Language" field for a document where it is blank, and to
ensure that new documents also have the correct setting.
Advice welcome !
