Spell checker and dictionary issue

Amit Mazumder
Hi!

Installed OO (full) [OpenOffice 4.1.6] in my PC running on Win 10 Prof. Perhaps the ENGLISH dictionaries (US & UK) failed to load for which all words are showing incorrect (with RED underlines).

Tried uninstalling and re-installing. But that did not solve this problem. Downloaded the dictionary manually and tried to install. That’s not helping either.

Please help.
Thanks to all in advance for your gesture to help resolve the issue at the earliest please.
Regards
Amit

Try renaming 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 most spellcheck problems.

This loss of spellchecking happens usually because the computer has been powered off too hastily or the laptop lid closed before the internal buffers of the hard drive have flushed to the disks.

Hi!
By the way, the proper path for the "user" folder is
"%appdata%\Roaming\OpenOffice\4"...
Kind regards,
Jack
