What happens when you right click on a misspelled word?
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 18.04.3 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP

There is no need to shout, and you need to give more information so we can help you better. Please read the forum survival guide.

The survival guide offers suggestions for presenting your problem so that we can help you better. We are volunteers, we want to help but we don't want to waste our time. You still don't give the kind of information we need. Like, language, does the spell checker acguzlly work (only marking misspelled words and not all words or none at all). Etc.

spell checker marks all the words not just misspelled words, but offers no replacement words...I haven't seen the survival guide offer a solution to this problem
