Description daveteekay 2019-10-30 10:30:49 UTC
I recently tried to spellcheck a book i have been writing, it performed okay for the first minute and then crashed. It did this every time i opened my file. The last time it tried to recover my file, it did eventually, but NOT the latest copy, one i had been working on an hour before. It had been saved repeatedly but now i have to start all over again. NOT HAPPY!
Going back to work in Microsoft Office 365, it has MANY glitches but as least its spellchecker works and it doesn't delete copious amounts of text.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open document
2.Hit ABC
3.wait for it to crash!

Actual Results:
Have to close the entire word document

Expected Results:
LOST the last hour of my writing, EVEN THOUGH it had been saved constantly

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
checked the entire document without fault. Oh yeah, and i couldn't change the spellchecker from English- USA.

3.6 is a very old version.
Last stable one is 6.2.8 and there's also new 6.3.2

Could you give a try on one of these?

No response here. And it was wrong report, mentioned 3 problems (spell check , crash, loss) , but without steps. So, while its frustrating for a user to have them, it's frustrating for LO to get basically useless report.
