I have just installed LibreOffice 4.0.4 on Windows XP. The Dutch spelling dos not work in Writer. Every word is marked as an error and the suggestions for correction do not make any sense.
The dictionary is in the extensions directory and the language is marked with the blue abc check mark in the settings menu.
I have uninstalled and deleted all previous versions of LibreOffice (and OpenOffice).
Spell check in English does seem to work. However, the spell check reports it is using the US dictionary in stead of the UK dictionary, which is the one in my extensions directory. I don’t know what that means, but it might give a clue as to what is going on.
How can I get the spell check to work?
