Description Robert Gonzalez MX 2014-07-21 19:47:27 UTC
Problem description: 
When opening a writer document in spanish or english, the whole text is marked as spelling error and if you right click the word it doesn't show spelling alternatives. if you activate the thesaurus with ctrl F7, it doesn't work either. I have opened previous documents and created new ones that in LO worked ok.
I have rewieved the default paragraph style and it has the correct language setting.

Steps to reproduce:
1. create a new document
2. edit the paragraph default style to set the language to english or spanish
2. write some text in english or spanish without error
3. see how Writer marks the words with red as if was wrong.
4. try with the context menu to obtain alternatives and see that there aren't.

Current behavior:
all the words are marked as mispelled

Expected behavior:
It should only mark the wrong words and give alternatives to correct. This feature was working well in

Operating System: Windows 8
Version: rc
Last worked in: release

i have attached a file with images of text in english, spanish and french, that demostrates the marking of the text. The original text file has the default paragrph style set to the correct language.

What folder is LO installed into on your system?
What is your username?
Is that a built-it or 3rd party dictionary?

hello. I installed in a test folder called test43 at root of C:\, the dictionaries are the ones bundled with the instalation, the user profile is in the same folder according to the instructions on the wiki. I have done the same with the previous betas and RC.
