Description Edward D Kukla Jr 2017-08-01 18:47:50 UTC
After opening an Microsoft RTF file with LO Writer, Spellcheck failed to indicate misspelled words, even if "F7 & Check document from beginning" were used. Spell check was compromised even after shutdown and restart.

I found out that if a single RTF was opened, then all other documents opened after did not have spellcheck functioning.

Partially resolved by re-configuring the Spellcheck. Spellcheck will work if activated, but misspelled words are not indicated even in ODF files previously created by LO.

Possible the LO configuration is corrupted by opening the RTF file?

Microsoft WordPad files saved as RTF opened in LO -> LO Spellcheck fails

This file was created in Microsoft 7 WordPad, saved as RTF file. When this RTF file is opened in LibreOffice (version below) on either Linux or Microsoft, the LO Spellcheck fails to function on this file, even after saved as an ODF file format. 

NOTE: Spellcheck will fail on all other files, as noted by no "wavy red line" indicator of miss-spelled words, and F7 -> Whole document failing to find obvious miss-spelled words.
