Hi :)
I think just try exactly what you have described.  
1.  Just save the file
2.  close the file
3.  double-click to open it
4.  click on the spell-check button

If step 3 opens the file in anything other than LibreOffice then 
1.  close the file again
2.  right-click on the file's icon, a menu should appear
3.  in that right-click menu choose "Open with ..."
4.  Hopefully LibreOffice Writer should be in there.  If not then at the bottom there is usually 
something like "more programs".  LibreOffice's various programs/modules (Writer, Calc etc) should 
be in there.  

If that doesn't work or starts looking far too complicated then 
1.  Open LibreOffice but do
File - Close
to get back to the LO splash-screen that offers a choice of which module to open.  
2.  Instead of opening a module just drag the file's icon into the LO window

Probably the 1st set of 4 steps will do the trick.  The rest is just in case it's being awkward.  I 
have forgotten which OS you are using but they are all pretty much the same except Mac.  However, 
there are slight differences so please let us know which OS you are using to get better detail.  
Windows?  Xp, Win7?  Ubuntu, Mageia, Fedora openSUSE or some other flavour of Gnu&Linux?  OS X or 
other Mac?  It seems unlikely you are using a BSD (unless you count Mac) but if you are there might 
still be someone on this list using it although i think they tend to go off to the devs list fairly 
quickly or use their own down-stream forums/lists.  
Regards from
Tom :)

Ok using Libre version and my auto spell doesn t and even worse when 
i click on manual spell check all i get is the stupid question do i want to 
start at the top; i click yes 

I think that question is not stupid. Some people just want to start 
spellchecking at the current location. YMMV. 

but then i get the boot telling me its all 
finished and it isn t ! ? 

So whats that crap all about and how do i fix it  ? ?   H E L P  waiting . . 

Check that in Format / Characters the language is defined as you wish. 
If it is defined as [none] no wonder you get the behaviour you're meeting. 

The best way to fix the undefined language is to set the underlying 
paragraph style: 
(the paragraph being selected or the insertion point being in the faulty 
1. F11 (or Format / Styles and formatting). A new toolbar shows up. 
2. Make sure the Paragraph styles list is selected (first toolbutton 
from the left) 
2. Right-Click the selected style name 
3. Select Change 
4. In the Font page, go to Language list. Set the language to the 
desired value. 
5. Validate 

And you're set! 

Note: I'm using an FR interface. The menus and options names above are 
freely translated.
