I was dismayed to discover recently (and surprised that I never noticed
before) that Libre Office disregards the difference between, say, á and
a in spelling checks, and in find and replace. (Dismayed also to
imagine that someone thinks this is a good idea.)
I wonder if anyone knows how (or whether) I could fix this. Or perhaps
it’s not in Libre Office at all but in Hunspell, or otherwise deep down
in the system. I’ve done some searching but can’t find any relevant
In case it matters, I’m using Libre Office 22.214.171.124 on Ubuntu Mate 18.04.
Many thanks for any help.
Well, there's a Hunspell's feature triggered by ICONV replacement table
but caveats exists.
ICONV á a
Hunspell - and LO as it uses Hunepll - will treat aáa the same as aaa
and it will not flag it as misspelled.
Letter á should be added into TRY section of Hunspell dictionary file
and words with á should make to wordlist so (possibly misspelled) aaa
could be corrected to aáa.
You can't get perfect recognition as that mean that every word in your
language should be added accented to your dictionary and that's
unbearable in terms of maintaining dictionary.
What you could to is add that ICONV replacement table into you
dictionary so accented words get ignored and aáa would not be flagged,
but for aáb you'll still get suggestion aaa when what you really wont is
If words in your language in writing are not generally accented, than
you need to find a workaround. Accented letter is still a different
letter then regular (a ~ á) and Hunspell can't tell if it's a accent or
a letter. In Croatian c ~ č ~ ć and non of last two are accented and are
legit (potential) spelling mistakes.
Don't know if this helped.
