Description Miles 2018-12-22 21:18:55 UTC
Description:
---this question was posted to Libreoffice site---
Hi, I'm currently using Libreoffice 6.1.4 and periodically (especially after a Windows 10 Preview Update) my auto spell doesn't seem to be functioning. I type a word incorrectly and I'm not getting the red squiggly line under it to indicated the spelling is incorrect. Too, I was also noticing that words I know are in the dictionary were coming up with a red squiggly line (when, apparently, auto spell was working). As I said, it happens then seems to correct itself. Right now, I've put my manuscript on hold since it isn't working. Anyone able to help? Thanks much in advance.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.anytime I type
2.create a new .odt document and everything is fine
3.doesn't work on an already established document (as I said, it periodically doesn't work.

Actual Results:
After seeing that a new document doesn't seem effected by this problem, I cut and paste my original manuscript to a new document and saved it under the same name.  

Expected Results:
Problem still exists in that original documents.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No



Additional Info:
I've also had to rebuild some of REPLACE words...they were wiped out after the cut and paste but I can deal with this.
