I find Artha is very useful as a dictionary and thesaurus. However, I believe it has a very noticeable, annoying, but not hurtful, bug. I tried very hard to sign up for their bug reporting service, but gave up. Perhaps someone who is already signed up will log in and tell them that the expression "Very rare" is GROSSLY overused! Thanx. --doug

Artha for Windows or Linux? I have it on Linux desktop, but used it once or twice. I have the Windows version but never used it on my Vista or XP laptops.

My English dictionaries have a thesaurus with about 140,000 word and phrases that can be looked up. They do not have a definition listed for the words in the spell-checking dictionary part, but the largest ones are over 638,000 words in the word list.

You can find them at my portal

OR the LO extension site.

I have Artha on both Windows and Linux, but I use Linux mostly. I do use the definitions, and I probably use definitions as often as spelling verification, or more so. But practically every word you look up comes up "very rare"--which, of course,
most of them are not.

When I'm using LO, of course the spell checker is turned on--I wouldn't know how to turn it off, and I only wish I knew how to add words to it--like my name. To be honest, when I use Windows, I prefer WordPerfect, which I believe is superior in usability and performance to either of the 'Offices and to MS Word, which you people slavishly imitate.
