Did you enable the dictionaries?
Comment 2 tommy27 2014-05-22 18:58:45 UTC
which language do you have issues with?
Comment 3 Joseph Keenan 2014-05-22 21:01:13 UTC
Have the dict for English US up and running. But the spell checker module seems to randomly not load when starting the program.

I might get a few (one or two) start ups in the Writer with the spell check working and the next day will start the program, load up a previously edited document or new document and the spell checker (all options the same) just doesn't work.

No change of options, just a close and opening of the program.
