Dictionary

Ed Hartwick
Support,

I have been using Openoffice for many years now but recently have had
issues with the dictionary. All documents I open up the words therein are
all underlined. They are not even in the dictionary. Words such as never,
the, get, and a, etc. I downloaded the 4.1.6 version hoping it would
correct the problem.It didn 't so I downloaded the English Canadian
Dictionary and it didn't help either. Can you please help as I checked the
forums and there was nothing there on dictionary issues?

Ed

There are dozens of postings re spellcheck/dictionaries on the Forums.

Rename your OO user profile.

If you are using Windows close OpenOffice and the Quickstarter. Open File
Explorer. Copy and paste %appdata%\OpenOffice\4 in the File Explorer (sometimes called Windows Explorer)
Address Bar and press Enter. Rename the "user" folder - "user.old" is a good choice. Start OpenOffice.

This cures almost all spellcheck problems.
