Hi

I am a new user to OOo and I know I am still making adjustments from MS Word...but could someone clear up a very simple (I hope) query for me.

When I F7 spellcheck, it comes up with English (USA). When I change it to English (UK), that too is fine, but when I come back to it at a later time, it has reverted back to USA.

I have been to Tools/Options/Language Settings/Writing Aids and changed the dictionary to UK for the three module. I have done the same in Languages. I haven't changed any of the user defined dictionaries.

So..can someone please help me to find where I can set Spellcheck to UK on an ongoing basis.

I would be really grateful for any help. Confused


Polly

Don't forget to search the forum before posting, this is a sticky : [Tutorial] Spell check.

Thanks to add '[Solved]' in your first post title (edit button) if it's ok.

Thank you Hagar.

And I apologise for not searching the forums...my only (feeble) excuse for not doing so is that I was very tired (and a bit frustrated) after a very long day Sad

Overall, I like OOo, but I am still finding out where there are minor incompatibilities with MSOffice (such as spreadsheet macros which didn't come across) and will have to decide whether these are big enough to prevent me coming across to OOo. /shrug

Thank you again. Smile
