Description sworddragon2 2013-09-28 12:21:03 UTC
The AutoCorrection feature provides the option to disable every part one by one. Maybe it would be useful to have an option to disable the complete AutoCorrection feature at once.

You mean to disable spellcheck per document? Then there is this bug for it: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60530

For more permanent options please do:
Got to : Tools - Options - Language Settings - Writing Aids
Then in the bottom list deselect the 2 options:
- "Check spelling as you type"
- "Check grammar as you type"

Please tell if this solves your problem.

No, I'm talking about disabling AutoCorrection for the complete LibreOffice suite.

None of them disables AutoCorrection. Maybe "Check spelling as you type" should affect it too? Or maybe there could be an extra entry for AutoCorrection.

as far as I know a "disable autocorrection" option is not present in any OOo/LibO/AOO version.

so I set status to NEW, version to INHERITED FROM OOo and platform to ALL.

IMHO, the best way to do that would be to add a button "Deselect All" on the tab AutoCorrection > Options.

For writer module you can uncheck menu Format > AutoCorrection > While Typing
but it does not affect other modules. In other module than Writer this command is not available.

see also bug 36539. The current bug report is not a duplicate of bug 36539 which is about Writer only when this one is for the entire suite.

Best regards. JBF
