Word Perfect 12 Spell Checker error

When I go to use the spell check feature in Word Perfect 12, I receive the message "no error string for this error".  Also, as I type, all the words are underlined in red.  When I hit the no error string for this error box I have to keep hitting it  and eventually I will get through the letter but usually the program gets an error and I have to reboot.

Also I am also getting the message "unable to initialize, make sure user word list is available" when typing anything after a period (.) such as Mr. and Mrs. comes out Mr. And Mrs.

Please help as I type a lot during the day and rely alot on spell check.

Thank you

The simplest fix is to uninstall and resintall the software to fix the problem. Try that first.
And always make backup copies of your documents outside of your computer (CD or USB hard drive) to make sure you have saved your most important work.

Have the latest service packs for WordPerfect been downloaded and installed from Corel's website?

Check that Tools, Language is set to the Language that is included in the version of WordPerfect you have bought.  Make sure this code is present in the Document Style.  To check this, go into Format, Styles, DocumentStyle, Edit - and make sure you have [Lang: UK] or whatever you are using, in there (if it just says [Lang] move your cursor to the left of the code.  If it isn't in there, or is incorrect, then you can enter it using the Tools, Language, Settings menu which is accessible from the Style panel.
A workaround for the Mr and Mrs problem can be corrected by going into Tools, QuickCorrect, Format As You Go tab and knocking off the tick in the box marked Capitalize next letter...
