There are two similar questions posted 1 and 2 which are not sufficient enough for solving my problem. I tried using solution suggested in the '2'nd link given above and then I encountered a new problem. In my case though everything else goes fine, I can not do the following thing -

sorry but I can not upload "english (uk)" in menu - tools - options - language settings - writing aids - Hunspell SpellChecker - edit - language english (UK). It is shown as "indian" like this -

But when I make changes in the option (that is in options - language - selecting UK english (which shows abc in front of it) though this appears -

After doing this I click on close, nothing changes... the old problem persist and that problem is I can not have dictionary set to UK english. What to do?

You may find the HELP function (languages;spelling and formatting) and, of course the downloadable LibO Writer Manual (Chapter2 Setting up Writer) useful in setting up LibO.

I have the English / French and Spanish dictionaries installed on my Linux Mint 17 system with LibO 4.3 and 4.4. I have the default of English (UK) selected. Details may vary with Windows etc.

If I wish to change the language for a document, I choose TOOLS > OPTIONS > LANGUAGE SETTINGS and choose the language and select FOR THE CURRENT DOCUMENT ONLY. The dictionary I wish to select must already be available on the system.

If I wish to check spelling for a second language I choose TOOLS > LANGUAGES > and then choose SELECTION / PARAGRAPH / FOR ALL TEXT. For example FRENCH (SWITZERLAND) LibO can only check one language at a time.

If I need to use another language dictionary I would need to download the dictionary first. For example TOOLS > LANGUAGES > MORE LANGUAGES ONLINE. And then restart LibO to activate the dictionary. I have used this technique for other European languages. I hope this may help a little... Peter
