At least in German, the autocorrection by default is absolute bullshit (sorry). When I am typing quickly, the result is absolute nonsens because of the many wrong automatic corrections!
It was impossible to switch it off easily. I tried:
- deactivate Extras/Automatische Rechtschreibprüfung
- deactivate Extras/Autokorrektur/Während der Eingabe
None of the above prevented libre office writer to correct words in my input lines. Why?? I can write on my own, I do not want to be corrected. Thank you! :-)
Type german text in german LibreOffice Writer and there will be a lot of wrong corrections that maybe make sense SOMETIMES but it is absolutely annoying to undo all of these wrong corrections. It prevents absolutely from quick typing!!!
As said, many wrong autocorrections without any confirmation of mine
User Profile Reset: No
No autocorrections by default, only after user choses a menu or whatsoever to make the software correct one!
You can disable auto correction by deselect:
Tools > Auto Correct > When Typing.
Auto correct works in many other languages such as English etc, I don't think it is worth disabling by default?
Actually for me it really does not matter as I use Simplified Chinese and this feature never work in Chinese language.

Peter, it should indeed solve your problem to deactivate the option in Extras => Autokorrektur => Während der Eingabe. If you only want to disable WordComplete you should try Exras => AutoKorrektur => AutoKorrektur Optionen => Wortergänzung => disable "Wortergänzung aktivieren"
Does this solve your problem? If not, you can use https://ask.libreoffice.org/ for further help.
Your proposal to disable autocorrect by default is a duplicate of bug 59754 and this idea has been rejected.
