Hi Manfred,

Thanks again for your kind help. So, as per your suggestions:

 You might try to re-synchronize the 'bundled dictionaries':

 - Close LibreOffice (+ Quickstarter, if enabled)
 - Go to '...\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Application
 - Rename the folder 'bundled' to (e.g.) 'bundled_old'
 - Restart LibO.

A new folder 'bundled' will be created in the user profile.
All bundled dictionaries should be available.

I followed the above and exactly what you expected would happen ended up
happening. Unfortunately, my spell checker remained broken. Still no fat
check mark.

(1) Checking the program folder 'extensions'
[Path: ...\Program_Files\LibreOffice 3.5\share\extensions]
- Folder 'dict-en' is available (with the file 'en_US.dic' [among

Both the folder and the file are present.

(2) Your LibreOffice 3.5.2 installation: default or customized


(3) Does the problem occur--right from start--with
- a renamed LibreOffice user profile

I exited LO, deleted the C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application
Data\LibreOffice folder, and restarted. The folder was re-created, but the
spell checker remained broken.

- another / a new user (OS level)?

I created a new user -- an administrator -- and logged out. I logged in as
the new user and started LO. Spell check was still broken in the same way.


Thanks again for your help. Would you have any other ideas? I'd be
enthusiastic to hear them!
