Hi!

https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/v ... 74&t=16512

I followed the process in the above troubleshooting until the end, but still my open office puts a red line under my Finnish text. I'm using Voikko v. 2.2.20100929 as dictionary.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi and welcome to the forum!

I remember this one that may help: Finnish language module?.

Thank you but no, it doesn't really help, sorry!

Do you have any tips on what I could try to make it work?

Does it work with another language?
Can you upload a sample file (see How to attach a document here) so that we try with the Finnish dictionary?

Yes, it works with English.

I don't quite know what you mean by sample file? What should I put in it?

On that document I get the red lines under the Finnish text as well as the English text with mistakes.

Sorry, no Finnish spell checking in OpenOffice until a native speaker starts to maintain a Finnish dictionary extension.

Yes, but there is Voikko (http://voikko.puimula.org/) which they say is a Finnish dictionary extension for OpenOffice specifically. I have installed it but it doesn't seem to work, that's what I was asking about.

The only place where they mention OpenOffice is here: http://voikko.puimula.org/releases.html in an old release note of 2012

Replace OpenOffice with http://libreoffice.org/
