When I copied the ~10 Kbyte standard.dic from my old StarOffice8 into

however, words were run together: spaces between them had been omitted. Of

Has anyone else run into this, and how does one fix it? Is there a better
way to import a detailed, carefully built standard.dic from OOo or
StarOffice into LibreOffice?

1. What OS?

2. Your 'standard.dic' from OOo 3.2 is in 'WBSWG6' format?

3. You can use the macro 'OOo Dictionary Importer/Exporter' to create
a *.txt file from this standard.dic;
some details on

4. Now you can create 'standard.dic' in the current user-readable and
user-editable 'OOoUserDict1' format;
some details on

Sample 'OOoUserDict1 format'
