Hi there,

I am trying to check the orthography of a file but it does not work.

However, syntax correction does work.

EXAMPLE:
Sentence: I are here.
Result: Does not correct anything. = NOT GOOD

Sentence: I are heree.
Result: Suggests to replace “heree” to “here”. = GOOD, BUT DOES NOT CONSIDER "are" AS AN ERROR.

MY VERSION:
OpenOffice.org 3.2.1
OOO320m19 (Build:9505)
ooo-build 2010-07-18

So how can I make GOOO Open Office do orthographic spell check?

Thanks for your help,
Rene

It looks like the grammar checking must be installed as an extension.
