2017-02-27 14:41:49 +0200 commented question Images created in MSO Word replaced by a small icon titled - Image1, image2 etc. Clicking it results tabs titled: Type Options Wrap Image "Crop Borders Area Transparency Macro. Selecting the "Image" tab shows a box with the image in it.

Posting the question in this location was an error on my part. Is it possible to remove the recent image question? The previous question regarding spelling should be marked as solved but I don't know how to do that either.

2017-02-27 14:35:28 +0200 asked a question Images imbedded in word docs are replaced by icons.

When opening Word documents created in MS Office, images have been replaced by a small icon in the upper left corner titled Image1, image2 and so on. This could be a result of changing from MS Office to Libreoffice? Clicking on it brings up a list of tabs titled: "Type" "Options" "Wrap" "Image" "Crop" "Borders" "Area" "Transparency" "Macro." Selecting the "Image" tab shows a box with the image in it and some tools such as > Flip, vertically, horizontally, On all pages, on left pages and so on. How do I restore the images to these doc's? Thanks

Here is the re-post of my question as requested.

I am a new user who has poured over the questions and answers with no success.

LO version 5.2.3.3 MS Windows 10 with current updates. The spell checker never worked except once there appeared a squiggly line under a word but it wouldn't give me a suggestion and has never done it again. Typing a sentence with obvious errors then selecting "Tools/Spelling and Grammar" results the message: "Spellcheck is complete". Selecting Tools/Language - gets a check mark for English (USA) and no others.

Looking in: "Tools->Options ..., Language Settings->Writing Aids" Items with checks are the following:

Lightproof grammar checker English.

Standard all English. en US english USA. Technical all. IgnoreAllList all.

Check spelling as you type. Check uppercase words. Check special regions. Minimum number . . . . . 5 Characters before . . . . 2 Characters after. . . . . . 2 Hyphenate special regions.

Regarding: "in tools - Options - Language settings - Languages - Default Languages for Documents." The defaults are set for English USA.

This problem was solved - is there something I'm supposed to do to close it?

2016-11-30 21:02:54 +0200 commented answer Spell check doesn't work

Since 11/5/2016 And now with the spell check working I am a happy camper. .

Problem solved.

Early on in this session I was advised that changing the user profile was not necessary. Well guess what? It was - and it seems to have fixed my spellcheck problem. Thank you very much for your time and interest in solving this.

I deleted the previous version of LO and installed a new one - nothing has changed. Both downloads were from www.Libreoffice.org/download

2016-11-27 15:12:14 +0200 commented answer Spell check doesn't work

When I go to >Options - Language Settings - Writing Aids< the only module shown is "Lightproof grammar checker (English)

Hunspell is not there under Writing aids or anywhere elsse.Lacking any further instructions on how to install Hunspell into the list I guess that I am to select Edit - get more dictionaries online but find I am unable to find Hunspell. Please tell how to find and install Hunspell . . . .Thanks.

Spelling doesn't correct files created by LO or MSO. I can't find "Hunspell" or instructions regarding it - so can't see if it's ticked. Maybe somebody will tell me?

You say "Repost as a question" then say "You can't have more than one specific question in one thread." That only serves to further confuse me. My second posting was not a question but was an attempt to supply more information as I was told. (???) Doesn't the information I posted answer your questions? Also how do I turn on "Hunspell spell checker"?

Spell check doesn't work. I get a check mark for English USA but not Paragraph or for all text. The spell checker still doesn't work although when I start a sentence with a lower case letter it corrects it.

I don't know what my problem was but it went away and files in Dropbox are accessed just fine Jim

My LibreOffice doesn't seem to be able to access Word and Excel files located in DropBox. Am I asking the impossible? Thanks, Jim
