the spell checker doesn't work.

And still it does not check.

Try placing the cursor where you know there's an error, and go to:
- Format > Character > Font
Is a language selected from the "Language" drop-down list? Is there a
tick next to that language?
If it doesn't have a language set, or if there is no dictionary is
installed for the selected language (no tick) it won't be checking the
spelling for at least that section of text.
- Tools > Language > For all Text > English (or any other language
with a dictionary installed)
This will mark all text in the document to be checked in that
language. Does the spell checker work then?
Using those menus, and Tools > Language > For Paragraph you can set
different languages for different paragraphs or sections of text,
which is useful if languages are mixed in one document.
Hope that helps.
If it still does not work, try adding a post-install English dictionary
via the Extension Manager. Sometimes this fixes "something" in the
installed package. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. But
it is worth a shot.
Try either link shown below. They point to the same file. This Is a
very large American English dictionary that was meant to add more words
to the spell checking system and more returns for the thesaurus option.
It also has a hyphenation resource to help with that option.
