Description Jean-Baptiste Faure 2013-04-15 19:36:58 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. open a new spreadsheet and activate spellchecking during typing
2. select a cell and hit ctrl+alt+C to insert a comment
3. type something with a typo in the comment field
4. click outside the comment field to validate
5. select the cell with the comment: the typo becomes red underlined
6. right click on the typo

Current behavior: no suggestion done

Expected behavior: several suggestions done to correct the typo, as it works when the erroneous word is in a cell

Spellcheck in comments works as expected in Writer.

Bug found in version 3.6.5 and

Best regards. JBF

has it ever worked in OOo/LibO ?

I tried on an old OpenOffice 3.1.1 release and spellcheck suggestion are not offered in spreadsheet comments... right clicking on typos do not show any correction suggestion.

I think that this features was never present and has been inherited from OOo.

so setting as NEW and changing the release version to first ever LibO version
