The Portable OOo 3 beta 2 English version spell check seems broken. Is that from the OOo site like that or is that a PA language tweak issue or was I suppose to set something up verses a default download/install?
All English words are marked as misspelled? Maybe the US dictionary is bad on new or existing documents, and no suggestions are offered.
Anyway, if you select the UK dictionary instead of the default US dictionary, things get much better, maybe perfect, at least where the two agree on spelling (color vs colour).
I trust that if PA goofed during whatever language tweaking is going on, they'll fix it. And if OOo goofed in making up their original downloads, someone already caught it?
BTW, I downloaded the English dictionary from the PA site and "installed it." That didn't seem to change anything, but I might have messed it up (where to I look to see if some file is where it belongs for the dictionary install). I didn't try uninstalling the existing dictionaries first (the Extension Manager has padlock symbols.
