How To Un-Break Spell Check?

Postby FrankBlissett » Tue Sep 26, 2017 12:34 am

Need some troubleshooting help. ~3 weeks ago (9/9/17), I installed an extension, "Linguist", which does word frequency counts. The extension had not been updated for several years, but it received good reviews.

Forward to today, and I notice that my spell-check is not working. Almost all words are underlined (only “I” is not so in this post). Further, I can't find the "Linguist" extension.

Any thoughts on how to get spell-check working again and what was the cause of the problem?

ps: the extension is at https://extensions.openoffice.org/en/project/Linguist
OpenOffice 4.1.3, on Windows 10

See [Solved] Spell Check Not Working (words red underlined)

After you reset the profile, you will need to re-install the Linguist extension - and any other extensions you may have.
