Italian spellcheck

Postby sansisto » Mon Jan 08, 2018 8:42 pm

The other day, I was happily using my Italian spellcheck. Yesterday, when I opened OO, my Italian spellcheck was gone. I've been trying to download it again, but it just doesn't work. Although everywhere you'd want to see the name of a language says Italian, it doesn't work. And I think my English spellcheck is gone now, too.

Can someone please help me? Can someone tell me how to download these two spellchecks without having them disappear without warning again someday? (This isn't the first time this has happened to me and you can understand if I'm getting a little tired of it.)

Thank you.

Have you tried to reset your OpenOffice user profile?

If no change, then follow this topic: [Troubleshooting] Spell check in OpenOffice.

Please add [Solved] at the beginning of the title in your first post (top of the topic) with the edit button if your issue has been fixed.

Neither of these two things did anything to help me.
I tried again to download the Italian spellcheck 4.1.3, since the 4.1.5 doesn't work at all.
Now I've got the Italian OO, that shows me stuff like Documento di testo and Foglio elettronico. And I still don't have an Italian spellcheck.
I DON'T WANT AN ITALIAN OO. I WANT AN ENGLISH OO WITH AN ITALIAN SPELLCHECK AND AN ENGLISH SPELLCHECK.
Why do I have this problem twice a year? How can I fix it forever??????

When you reset your OpenOffice user profile were you prompted for your name and initials on next start of OpenOffice?

You've downloaded the install file in Italian.
Either reinstall the English one (preferred method IMHO) or download the English language pack, install it and change the interface language in the Tools>Options>Language Settings>Languages (well, in Italian of course).

Have found this extension for Italian that should be fine: https://extensions.openoffice.org/en/pr ... n-patterns

I just tried it again. I downloaded the English OO. I got the English OO with the English spellcheck. Then I tried to download the Italian spellcheck.

I clicked on Download language pack, Italian. Now I've got the Italian OO with the English spell check and no Italian spellcheck.

What is going on? What is wrong with OO? I'm getting tired of this. How many times do I have to go through this???

Hagar Delest--I just tried your link. I got as far as seeing three choices: Disable, Remove, and Add. I don't want to disable it. I don't want to remove it. If I click on Add, it asks me for the name of the file. What file? What name? What you gave me to use is not something to download the Italian spellcheck, is it?

I suggest that you open Help in Writer, select Index and search for spellcheck;default languages. Read the sections "Adding More Text Languages" and "Adding More UI Languages". It sounds like you're downloading a language pack for the UI language instead of a dictionary for Spellcheck.

Of course. You should install an extension like the one I linked. It is a .oxt file that will install the dictionary.
You can remove the Italian language pack.
