I've read numerous posts for spell checker and tried numerous solutions. Finally I uninstalled, reinstalled and deleted my user profile. I reinstalled with 4.1.3 and also installed the English language pack. I am still unable to get the spell checker to work initally on a new document and I think the reason for this is there is no default language for the document. The workaround is to use tools/language/for all text and select English USA.
Then I close the document and open a new document. Then go to tools/options/language settings/language and the default language is german. i set this to English USA and select okay. Then I close the document, open a new document and the default language has been set back to German.
So how do I set the default language from German to English USA and get it to stay for any future new documents that I create. I am using windows explorer new option to create a new opendocument text in the folder where i want it to reside?
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
