Subject: Can't get Spanish distionary to stay selected
Date: Sat, 11 Feb 2012 17:38:04 -0800
In LibreOffice 3.4. I've tried everything, read all the forums.
Downloaded the recommended Spanish oxt file from Extensions. Extension
Manager shows it as installed. But when I try to set it as the
dictionary for my document, the only place it stays checked for is
Selection. I have Spanish (Mexican) set as my default language. When I
try to establish Spanish as my SpellChecking language in Writing Aids,
it does not stay selected. It appears in the selection box, then I
click Close, but when I open the Writing Aids dialog again, it has
reverted to English.
AND, the spell checker doesn't check anyway -- just asks Start at top?
then says everything is fine. In a document full of misspellings and
Spell checking works based upon paragraph and character styles. You
have set Spanish (Mexican) as your language meaning that the Default
paragraph style in the Font tab has this selected as the dictionary used
to check spelling.
If you want to use Spanish, you need to create a new paragraph
style with Spanish selected as the language in the Font tab. Then apply
the Spanish style to all the paragraphs containing Spanish. For
paragraphs containing Spanish (Mexican), apply the Default paragraph
More information on styles are found in the Getting Started with
Writer chapter of the Getting Started Guide and the styles chapters in
the Writer Guide.
