Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 488796
OOo-writer does not check spelling in all installed languages
Last modified: 2009-03-05 15:01:23 EST
Description of problem:
Under language settings, there used to be a box to make openoffice check the spelling in all installed languages. This has disappeared since a few months.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Try to have OOo-writer check the spelling in a multi-language file: all non-English words will be flagged as errors, even though these other languages are installed.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write a multilanguage file
2. Check the spelling, or just observe the red underlines under all non-English words
3. Once be able to check the document in English, but not in the other languages, hence there could be errors
It is not possible, as it used to be, to check the spelling in all installed languages
The spell checkeing should use all available dictionaries for all installed languages, given that one has selected this option in the setup.
"Remove Check in all languages from Options list box"
it was done deliberately (http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=98867)
The "right" way has always been to mark the words as their correct language so they get checked against the matching dictionary. I don't know though what the rationale is for removing the "I don't care, and check everything in all dictionaries anyway" option. Either way, its not a specific Fedora bug.
