Description Gary 2020-08-07 19:43:58 UTC
Description:
I have Auto Spellcheck on, but the squiggly underlines sometimes show up, sometimes do not.  Today when they did not show up, I opened another doc where they did show up.  Then went back to the original file and they were now showing up.  This intermittent showing of misspelled underlines has been going on since I started using Writer.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.misspell a word
2.
3.

Actual Results:
sometimes red squiggly line will show up, sometimes it will not display.

Expected Results:
red squiggly lines under misspelled words when Auto Spellcheck turned on.


Reproducible: Sometimes

I received an email from bugzilla-daemon today (Aug. 22).  It says "QA Administrators changed bug 135543".   And in a small table, under the heading Added, it says "QA: needs comment".

I do not understand what, if anything, is being asked of me. Is there a question you wish me to answer?

Also, I tried to reply to the email, which (as you know) does not work.  Please label emails that cannot be replied to as such.  Thanks

I received an email from bugzilla-daemon today (Sept. 15).  It says "BogdanB changed bug 135543".   And in a small table, under the 'Added' column, it says  "96000".

I do not understand whether you are asking me for more information, reporting new information to me, or both.

Hi, Gary, please provide an example.

For example what language do you use in your document.

Give us an example of wrong word.

Or attache here a document with some words where you find those problems, and the steps we need to folow in order to see the problem.

From Gary:

"Thanks for explaining in plain english what you need.   As I explained before, this is an intermittent problem.  Auto. spell check works most of the time, but perhaps 10% of the time, it's not working.  The first document I opened today to give you an example, and "celiac" was underlined - even though it's not mis-spelled.  But I know that the built-in dictionary might be missing this word.  Anyway, I added a string of words a few lines below (which I highlighted  only to make it easy to find them), and none of them are underlining - even "celiac".  So this is a rare case where the underlining happens on some mis-spelled words, and doesn't happen on others.   See screenshot below."
