Re: [libreoffice-users] Spell check not working

I had this problem and fixed it after someone on this list directed me to something like ">> spell checking not working in LBO 3.4.3
>> http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/spell-checking-not-working-in-LBO-3-4-3-tt3299202.html#a3302339";.

Specifically, I found "path: ...\LibreOffice\3\user\extensions\bundled" ("C:\Users\sgraves\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\3\user\extensions\bundled" in my case). I renamed "bundled" to "bundled.err". Then I restarted LibreOffice. After that, I was able to get what I wanted with LibreOffice Writer following the documentation to Tools -> Options -> Langauge Settings" and Tools -> Language, ... . It took some experimentation, but I (mostly) got what I wanted.

NOTE: Windows (Vista and 7, at least) sometimes hides the AppData folder, even when it seems to say it's not. In Windows Explorer, type C:\Users\yourUserID\AppData", and it should appear [with "yourUserID" replaced by your user ID].

Hope this helps.

please have a look at the bug report (only 91 comments) ... ;)

I think it's principally a Windows bug, especially Win7.
Registering/synchronizing the bundled dictionary extensions is broken,
the user profile (of a previous LibO installation) doesn't get the new
values of the upgraded LibO version.
Mostly *all* language modules are unavailable in 'Tools> Options>
Language Settings> Writing Aids...'.

I've tried a short (by that time still incomplete) summary (based on
WinXP) in comment #24.
With Win7 that seems to be worse.

For what OS and what conditions does this "bug" happen? I did not get this
when I downloaded/installed LO 3.4.3 yesterday on a "clean install" Compaq
Win XP system. But I also add Language Tool and Linguist, plus other
default extension before I start using LO. So that may help the issue.

I installed LO 3.4.3 (OOO340m1 Build 302) a few weeks ago and I've
just noticed that the spell check (both AutoSpellCheck and
Tools->Spelling and Grammar...) don't work.

For AutoSpellCheck, mispelled words are not underlined.

For Spelling and Grammar I just immediately get a message saying "The
spell check is complete".

I installed LibO_3.4.3_Win_x86_helppack_en-GB and I've re-run the
installer with the repair option but no improvement. (English (UK) is
my default language for documents).

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this isn't working?

I have had previous versions installed if that might be conflicting?

Running on Windows XP SP3.
I suppose:
Bug 37195 - Dictionary access lost after LibO upgrade
