Spell check does not suggest an accented version of a mis-spelling as a correction.

Using Writer under Maui. This also applies to a Windows version.

‘protege’ is identified as mis-spelt, and ‘protégé’ isn’t, but ‘protégé’ is not suggested as a correction.

Is this a known bug? I can’t readily find where bugs are recorded for Libre Office.

Can’t answer your primary question; but get help link on LibreOffice main site gives direct link to Bugzilla’s new issue entry page. There you may search for existing issues, and also when you type your new issue’s title, it searches and suggests you possible duplicates.
