Description Peter CM 2014-03-08 22:00:26 UTC
I'm running OpenOffice on Windows 7 (using the US-International Keyboard). 

When I run a Spelling and Grammar check in Writer and come across a misspelled word, the module offers three correction buttons: "Correct", "Correct All", and "Always Correct". 

The "Always Correct" button doesn't appear to be documented anywhere and does not appear to actually do anything. 

(The "Correct All" button only corrects a single instance of a misspelled word, a bug I have submitted in a separate report.)

Related bug, to be filed separately:

* The error correction buttons in the actual Spelling and Grammar module are labeled "Correct", "Correct All", and "Always Correct". The help module and online documentation (still?) refer to them as "Change" and "Change All".

Peter: please keep in mind that Apache OpenOffice and LibreOffice are 2 different softwares. Could you give a try to LibreOffice 4.2.3?

That button is functional, but gives no feedback. It could be improved if it was working as Change All after adding the Autocorrect entry.

Actually, what the "Always Correct" button does is to add the selected correction pair to the AutoCorrect table. If AutoCorrect is turned off, or if you're not actively typing the misspelling, it doesn't get corrected. The "Always Correct" button should probably be relabeled to something like "Add to AutoCorrect" or if space is short, "+→AutoCorrect" or just "AutoCorrect". (Someone told me the button is more accurately labeled "AutoCorrect" in the German-language interface.)
