I want to install a swedish dictionary extension to use for spelling control
Down loaded Swedish dictionary from https://extensions.openoffice.org/en/pr ... openoffice
Extension manager will not recognise this file and says it does not exist although it clearly does.
Any advice?

Hi and welcome to the forum!

LibreOffice may offer a better compatibility.

That extension downloaded and installed for me with no problem. Probably the OP has a corrupt download - I'd suggest he tried again.

My Swedish spellcheck does not work since several versions of Openoffice. Now I have 4.1.9 on Windows 10. The Swedish spell check worked before. Now, the spellchecker recognise alleatory 1 word of 10.
Please help if you can. Thanks!

Try to reset your OpenOffice user profile and reinstall the extension. I tried some time ago the Swedish extension and it installed fine also.
Else, try LibreOffice.

For permanent change.
