Hi!

Win7/X64. OOO320m19 (Build:9505).

When I try to spell checking a document, I cannot Add new element to the list.
I cannot create my own dictionary, when I restart the OO, it is forget them.

Please help me, I don't have, only OO to write documents, and I very need the spell checking!

Thanks:
dd

Try Tutorial Spell check and Language configuration. You can also try this Troubleshooter. You can also reset your user profile. That solves many problems.

If your problem has been solved, please edit the first post in this thread and add [Solved] to the title bar.

Thanks for your hints. Unfortunately they don't seem to solve my problem.
The spelling checker does work om my machine. It's the right language and I get the red wavy lines under misspelled (or suspect) words.
My problem is only that I can't add the suspect but correct words to the dictionary. Which means that nothing happens when I click the "ADD" button in the spellchecker menu (activated by pressing <F7>).

I'm out of my depth. You can register at the new forum (see my signature for the link) and ask the question there. It's a more active forum than this one.

So:

1.)
All icons, menus, everything is OK with spell checking.
Except two things:
a.) use my own dictionary
b.) extend the main dictionary with an unknown word

The version b what is problematic.
The spell checking's meaning is to correct the wrong words. But unknown words not spellable.
For example: Castaneda, nagual, tonal, etc.

The "Hozzáadás" (extend, add) button is not working for me. Sometimes disabled, sometimes it is don't do anything.

If I create a new dictionary, and I exit from OO, after the restart this dict is disappears.


2.)
I tried everything. These things are working with XP, but with Win7/X64 don't.
I used these functions with XP in another machine.
I use OOO320m19 (Build:9505), a hungarian (FSF) version.
This version well working in XP.

3.)
I deleted the user profile, uninstalled the OO, restart, install, restart, but the effect is same.
So some other problem is here.
The prev. version of OO installed in C:\OO, this version is installed to normal dir, c:\Program Files (x86).

So the problem is not vanished just nobody knows the solution as I see... Sad
