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'

setting, but I

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 !

Please have a look at:
