Is the Spelling and Grammar menu doing grammar checking?

William Colen
Hello!
A CoGrOO 3.0.0 user installed the extension in BrOffice.org 3 (OOO300m9
build 9358) and reported problems while executing the Spelling and Grammar
menu.
I could reproduce it in BrOffice.org. The CoGrOO logs are OK, the problem
looks like to be in the OOo itself.

I tried the same using the OpenOffice.org itself, with another grammar
checker (like LanguageTool) them I notice that in the US OpenOffice.org,
the Spelling and Grammar menu is not doing grammar checking!

Maybe for some reason the BrOffice included a bugged version of the Spelling
and Grammar menu. Is that possible?

I installed LanguageTool in my BrOffice and executed it in a text similar to
the one my user sent. I had similar problems.

Should I open an issue in the bug track?

Thank you,
William

Hi,

without telling us *what* problems you are experiencing it sounds as if
you're telling the doctor: "I'm sick, what medicine will you give me?".
Please be specific :)

Note that the Spelling and Grammar checking dialog box has a special
check box for enabling grammar checking in the dialog - because the
support of grammar checking in the dialog is buggy. You should simply
use the automatic checking by enabling automatic spell checking.

Regards,
Marcin

Sorry you are right :)

There was at least two problems:

1. In a plain text, when the Spelling and Grammar checking dialog box found
a grammar error, it was not moving to the next sentence after pressing
Ignore.
2. In a formatted text (with titles and numbered lists) it was freezing the
OOo. I can't say way, the CoGrOO logs are OK at that point, and also the
next error was a spelling error.

In both cases if I disable the check box in the dialog, the behavior was OK
(only available in BrOffice release).

My concern is how a feature that is not available in the US release because
it was buggy is available in Brazilian release.



Thank you!

William

Both bugs are known and scheduled to be fixed for 3.0.1, as far as I
remember. Dialog box is still unusable in 3.0.0.

http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=91668

The second one seems connected to the above bug, but feel free to submit
the bug. Use "GCF:" in the summary, and assign it to tl, component:
lingucomponent.

Anyway, grammar checking is working fine until you simply try to use the
dialog box. You should use the built-in dialog box in LanguageTool (I
don't know about CoGrOO).

It is available because you clicked the check box. Simply clear the
check box (it's not checked by default).

Marcin
