[Solved] Don't have a dictionary

Postby Toller » Sun Nov 17, 2019 6:10 pm

When I type a document, it labels every word as misspelled. I was on an older version of OO, so I tried to upgrade, but it gave me an error message. So I deleted OO and installed the current version. It still labels every word as misspelled. For the moment I have turned off the spell check, but it would be nice to have. Any idea how i can fix this? Thanks.

Start by renaming your OpenOffice 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.
