Issues with installing under all versions of MS Windows

Spell Checking <g>

Postby glazich » Sat Oct 28, 2017 10:33 pm

Greetings, all!

I recently installed OpenOffice 4.1.4 on a laptop running Windows 10. Everything is running fine except that the Spell Checker flags *every* word as needing a spell check! I've checked the dictionaries and settings and can't find anything amiss. What can I do to correct this?

Rename your OO user profile.

As your Forum .sig says you are using Windows s 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.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.6 on Xubuntu 18.04 (mostly 64 bit version) and infrequently on Win2K/XP
