Description Bob 2017-03-21 16:10:04 UTC
I just upgraded to In all previous versions I've had, a right click on a word would show a Thesaurus option. I do not get that anymore and when I goto Thesaurus via Tools or cntl F7 there is no entry shown for any word I select. I did nothing unusual in the setup, no customization, just as I've always done in the past. Although it may need a separate report, I will mention that a similar functionality was lost during the previous upgrade. This involved the disappearance of the 'change case' option on right click and the ability to put separate 'change case' icons on the toolbar.

HI Bob,

Which locale is concerned? Is there a linguistic extension installed for in the Extension Manager?
