I want to thank everyone for trying to help me with my spell check 
problem.  However, I still have the problem.  Spell check tells me that 
every word in my doc. is spelled wrong.  I still have OpenOffice on my 
computer and I was able to get into the system (it usually crashes) I 
pulled down every window in both OpenOfffice and Libreoffice and 
compared all the settings.  English (USA) is set everywhere possible in 
both systems.  Yet, spell check works perfectly in OpenOffice and won't 
work at all in Libreoffice.

So I have no choice but to uninstall Libreoffice and look for another 

Thanks again for all your help.


I haven't been following all the answers give to help you, but wanted to
throw out a couple of my own. You may have already tried these, but if not
they may help.

The problem you describe is not a normal problem. LO normally does spell
check fine so there has to be something in the install or setup that went
wrong so before you jump ship please try the following:

1. Close LO and rename you profile to something else than it is now, reboot
the computer then restart LO Writer. This should put you back to defaults.

2. If #1 didn't help then close LO, rename the profile again and uninstall
LO. Reboot your computer and then reinstall LO, checking the
language/dictionary settings (2 places) during the advanced install.
Hopefully this will give you a normally functioning LO.

Hope this helps.
