Description Peter 2012-08-25 07:56:56 UTC
Libre Office was getting really usuable - now spelling does not check.  
I previously was able to use Australian English without problem.

The previous version was ok I think.

Guys say if something won't work, so we can all save band width.

This was a known issue with From the release notes:


"If you update from an earlier version, spellchecking might be broken. In this case, the following workaround helps:

    On Linux, in a terminal window enter "rm -r ~/.config/libreoffice/3/user/extensions"
    On Mac OS X, in a Terminal window enter "rm -r ~/Library/Application\ Support/LibreOffice/3/user/extensions"
    On Windows, in a Command Prompt window enter "rmdir /q /s %appdata%\LibreOffice\3\user\extensions"
    After that, please restart LibreOffice twice."

Does this fix your issue?

I think this one is more or less a DUP of "Bug 53006 - Autocorrection TWo
INitial CApitals does not work because of bundled extensions problem", root of
the problem is incorrect update for "bundled extensions"

please feel free to reopen this Bug if you find evidence that we have an
independent issue here. Indicator might be that renaming of folder "bundled"
under "extensions" in User Profile
does not heal your problem.
