Using the most recent version of Libreoffice, the spell check function in Writer is not working in documents in which I'm using multiple languages. For example, I frequently create documents in which I alternate between Sanskrit (Devanagari-QWERTY keyboard) and English. I am only interested in having the English spell-checked, but this is not working, either when auto-checking as I type or when initiating it from the Tools menu. I have reviewed and applied most of the answers in this forum, (including making sure the language settings are aligned), and nothing has helped yet. Spell check works fine in single-langauge documents. Any solutions?

I have never seen anything that suggests more than one language can be spell-checked. Further, it is difficult to know how it could (how is it going to distinguish between more than one language in a document?).
