Description scuda 2012-06-07 03:32:27 UTC
Surprised when spell checking that NOTHING was picked up! Tried deliberate misspellings, which spellcheck and autospellcheck failed to find. All settings in 'Options/Language Settings/Writing Aids' are set OK.

Maybe a duplicate of 'Bug 50552 - SPELL check does not mark wrong text and capitalization rules'.

Please have a look at the above-mentioned bug and try the described workaround.

Thanks manj_k. Tried the workaround for Bug 50552, which was:

That has been resolved by synchronizing/enabling the bundled extensions once
- Close LibreOffice (+ Quickstarter, if enabled).
- Select the folder 'bundled' in LibreOffice user profile; path:
- Rename the folder 'bundled' to 'bundled_old'.
- Restart LibreOffice (maybe you need to start it twice due to bug 43989).

After restarting, all of the spellchecking functions worked fine.

Please mark this bug as fixed, but will the fix be automatically applied in next released version?

(In reply to comment #2)

Thanks for testing the workaround.
So this bug is a duplicate of bug 50552 (still not fixed).

Bug 50552 may be a duplicate of 'Bug 43989 - After installation first launch
terminates after splash screen' (bugfix will be available in v3.5.5).
We will test it with v3.5.5rc1.
