Spell-Checker does not work

Post by ozuser »

"Please check with Format > Character the language of your text. If it is
"No language", spell checking will not work."

The box has a language ......... CHECK

"Please click on ribbon command File | Options | Language | Check option
"check spelling as you type" and then select red colour if not already
selected. > Press OK to implement this setting."

I can confirm that this has been implemented ............ CHECK

Hunspell dictionary is listed in the Language window .......CHECK

Yet I still can't get any recognition of spelling errors!

The only other thing I can think of is that I recently downloaded FreeOffice 2021 and deleted FreeOffice 2018.

Please let us know which language is selected there?

Please check and confirm if "English (United Kingdom)" is listed there or not?

Dear reader,
We have an answer with the help of SuperTech
I need to download a Hunspell dictionary in the language I require from the SoftMaker FreeOffice website (and remember where you download it on your PC)
https://www.freeoffice.com/en/download/dictionaries

Then go back into your TextMaker doc.
At the top of the page under Tools > Options > Click on Hunspell dictionaries tab > Click on Add Hunspell dictionary
A window opens, locate the Hunspell dictionary you downloaded
Click on it > Click the Open tab and you should now see it uploaded in the TextMaker Dictionaries window

As I am only using this one language, I have also made sure it matches the Language setting in the following -
TextMaker doc. at the top of the page Format > Character > Language
TextMaker doc. at the top of the page Tools > Options > Default language
