Make sure that you have "Hunspell" option selected in Edit > Preferences > General tab > Spell checker and restart.
I had the same problem and Igor's comment works. Although it is really weird that the spell checker only works with Hunspell and not OpenOffice!?
Hi! I was trying to add a spell check dictionary, but discovered that I don't have proper menu items! In tutorial video they have additional menu items regarding spell check dictionary, but I don't have them! See screenshot.
Have anybody met the same problem?
