Description Peter Gückel 2009-03-05 14:12:36 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):

How reproducible:
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
Actual results:
It is not possible, as it used to be, to check the spelling in all installed languages

Expected results:
The spell checkeing should use all available dictionaries for all installed languages, given that one has selected this option in the setup.

See http://specs.openoffice.org/appwide/linguistic/Spelling_and_Grammar.odt
"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.
