I see there is a lot of information about this recurring problem - in general
However, I have not been able to find a solution
I have never used open office before - this is a new computer with windows 7 installed
THE SPELL CHECKER DOES NOT WORK IN WRITER - I suspect it needs a dictionary but the following problems occur when trying to follow all the instructions on this site
1) No check box to click when in Paragraph style in the writer application
go to next step
2) No Engilsh ( BRITISH) dictionary in the list
3) Down load the English (UK) language pack - what ever that is- the file ends up on my desk top , unpacked, but installation results in the error message incorrect o/s
So is there no English ( Uk) dictionary ?
Can I not have a spell checker if I am using Windows 7 ?
