Using US english dictionary spell checker misses misspelled words. I can
have a document with multiple confirmed spelling errors and LO doesn't seem
to find a single one of them when I run spell check after the fact (for
example, an imported or "cut and paste" document). It does seem to work fine
in spell as you type mode, however.

I suspect the problem is that you need to specify a language. You can check
if you have a default language set by looking at the status line at the
bottom of the window. The third field from the left should have "English
(USA)" or what ever language you have set. If nothing is there then go to
menu item Tools/Options/Lanuage-settings/Languages and set the default
language for your documents.

You can also set language specifically for the current document in Menu item
Tools/Language and set it for what ever part of the document you want.
