After upgrading a user to 8.5.2 from 7.0.2 (server running Domino 8.5.2 FP2 as well), when spell checking an email, "Skip All" is grayed out; the other 50 some odd users are not experiencing this issue. I have setup the user on a totally different workstation and the results are the same; "Skip All" is grayed out

What are the settings in the user's notes.ini file for SPELL_XXX ? Could you post them here please?

You might try to set
SPELL_RESET_DEFAULT=1

I added SPELL_RESET_DEFAULT=1 to the notes.ini file on the users workstation, opened Lotus Notes, tested spell checking, still grayed out. Re-opened the notes.ini, the "=1" had been changed to "=0"

Mine (without your typos ;-) :

SPELL_RESET_DEFAULT=0
SPELL_LANG=1033
SPELL_PREFERENCES=0
Preference_fr=,,,1033,,,,af:en:fr,,,
Region=fr

Can you maybe compare two notes.ini files, i.e. one working and one that fails?

In hindsight, it could be a more serious problem than I assumed.

Does it relate to this page:

so a solution could be to force the old spell checker to be used until this has been resolved.

SPELL_FORCE_LEGACY=1

I added SPELL-FORCE-LEGACy=1 to the notes.ini; "skip all" is still unavailable

you should spellcheck your ini...


i.e. if you put in dashes (-) instead of underscores (_) then Notes will not change...

Sorry, bad typing, it happens when you do not press the shift key, it was SPELL_FORCE_LEGACY=1 that I used

   Hi there trainer_arw,,,

For these users who are having the " Skip All " Problem , Could you please check if there is any commen thing between them . e.g. their Templates are not updated to StdR85Mail or the ODS is still not updated to 51 ... This could be the cause since you have tried them on different PCs and the same problem still exist .


Best Wishes

Which suggests that you didn't install the (separately available) spelling dictionary for UK English.

Your setting:
SPELL_LANG=2057

My (working) setting, see above:
SPELL_LANG=1033

Kind of staring you in the eye, wouldn't you say?
