Chapter 3: Working with Text
Using language tools



OK - I was already familiar with this, and I think I am following the
recommendations correctly.
But I do notice another symptom which may be relevant.
The document you refer to here shows that when you select a particular
language from the
Tools/Language menu, it adds a tick to the selection, implying that it will
remember that setting
for the future. On my system, this only works for the first menu item 'For
selection'. With the next two menu items ('For paragraph' and 'For all
text') the tick doesn't appear - it's as if it won't allow me to
set the language.

Tools > Language > For Selection
shows the language attribute of the selected text at the cursor
position (with a check mark).
There you can change the language attribute for the selection.

With Tools > Language > For Paragraph / For all Text
you can change the language attribute (at the cursor position) for the
paragraph or for all text.
There are no check marks.

The language attribute at the cursor position is shown in the status bar.
Please set the cursor in a part of your text, where spell check isn't available.
What language is shown in the status bar?

Open the Styles and Formatting window (F11).
What language attribute is shown in the Font tab for the "Default"
paragraph style
(Right click > Modify)?

Set the cursor in a part of your text, where spell check isn't available.
What paragraph style is highlighted in the Styles and Formatting window?
What language attribute is there shown in the Font tab?

Tools > Language > For all Text > (select) English (UK) -
does it work?

Tools > Language > For all Text > (select) Reset to Default Language -
does it work?

You might think that suggests that I don't have the
English UK dictionary installed,
but I do, and for a few documents it works OK.
Something is broken, and has been for some months (when I first noticed this
problem in OpenOffice), and hasn't changed with replacing OO with LO.

Could you upload (somewhere - not to the mailing list) a sample
document with broken spell check?
