Unable to spell check in Spanish

Post by astroboy » Tue Dec 25, 2012 9:04 pm

I installed Spanish hunspell dictionary from http://www.softmaker.net/down/hunspell/ ... -spain.sox

Now I'm able to successfully spell check in FreeOffice TextMaker and FreeOffice PlanMaker, but not in FreeOffice Presentations.

Even though I already configured the spell check in Presentations (Tools -> Options -> Language -> "Spanish Traditional" -which is the Spanish one shown with a check mark at the left-) every typed word is marked in red with "Use background spell-checking" activated. Trying Tools -> Check Spelling is not useful either, it will mark each word, but without suggestions.

If I select English as the language to spell check, it works in Presentations as it should be...

Why Spanish is not working as a spell-checker on Presentations? :o

I can confirm that problem and informed the developers. I will report here as soon as we have a solution.

I can also confirm the bug reported in http://www.softmaker.com/forum/viewtopi ... 14&t=12604. FreeOffice does not spell check words with accented characters nor with the character 'ñ'.

So, I refrain from my prevoius statement of being able of "successfully spell check in FreeOffice TextMaker and FreeOffice PlanMaker"

The problem with the spell checker has been solved. It should no longer occur in the next version of FreeOffice.
