Open Office 1.0.1 and bold & autocorrect

Recommended Posts



Does anyone else have problems with OpenOffice not bolding text and the auto-spell not working? I have transferred from Suse 8, where I had the problem, but I still get it with Mandrake 9.

Which type of openoffice do you use, the mandrake supplied rpm or the tarballs from the openoffice.org? Did you you still keep the ~/.openoffice directory from your /home partition? That could be the reason.. what happened if you delete your .openoffice directory and rerun openoffice again?


Anyway.. for the spelling part, you may need to install all the myspell dictionary rpms asuming you are trying the English language.. All the rpms are






then set up the options -> Language Settings -> Writing Aids and enable all the checkmarks in the spellchecker.
