Do you see the blue check mark in the general setting panel?
No -> : Make sure you have closed OOo, the Quickstarter (OOo icon in system tray) and restarted OOo.
NB: in some rare cases, you have to untick, then retick the Hunspell Spellchecker option (Tools > Options > Language Settings > Writing Aids) before closing and restarting the application.
Huh? Where is this?
Do you see the correct language (with the blue check mark) for Default paragraph style?
NO, did this and no blue check mark.
Is the spell checking button highlighted in the toolbar?
Yes, go to next post.
Is the language the correct one?
Where is the styles button? I don't see it and there is no option to clear formatting. The bottom of my document looks like the screen shot, but my thesaurus and spell checker are still not working.
Let's test the attached file: you should see the red wavy lines in certain places
No, it did not work. No wavy red lines, at all and when I clicked on the spell check button, it did not spell check it.
Have you restarted OOo?
What does this mean? I am not in open office, and what is a splash screen? What is Quickstarter? Where is the download for the dictionary?
I am now on my third hour of trying to fix this issue. I bought my Open office, the version is 3.3, My OS is windows 7, I did a system restore to before I did the update to 3.4. I am NOT a programmer! I need this to work, I start classes on July 2, and I MUST have this working! I am about to pull my hair out PLEASE HELP.
