Please check the following steps in case that the spell checker (F7) does not work properly:

1. Select your text and invoke Format=>Character. Make sure that the language for the selected text is set to "Default". In documents with text in different languages, format each paragraph or word in the language that the text is written in (e.g. select "Italian" for selected Italian text, "Spanish" for Spanish text and so on)

2. Invoke Tools=>Options=>Language and set the default language to "English" or whatever your default language should be. Also make sure that there is a green tick next to every language entry you need. This indicates that the corresponding spell check dictionary is correctly installed. If the green tick is missing for your language, please start the Setup of SoftMaker Office again and perform a complete installation. This will install al dictionaries. You will not lose any settings with that new installation.

3. Make sure that the spell checker is enabled in Tools=>Options=>Language
