open office spellcheck is english USA

i can alter the spellcheck language to english UK but it always seems to revert to USA how can one change this?

Perhaps you have been changing Language via Windows Control Panel, rather than by Open Office>Tools>Options ....

Or maybe even Vice-Versa .....

Tools - Options - Languages - then under default languages for documents make sure English UK is selected with the abc thing to the left of it.

tried that settings but no use and it is open office and not pc settings


  Woolwell 22:21 29 Sep 10

That was for Open Office.

Also open language and check what is set there.

This is what I meant by Open Office>Tools>Options ...

That's what I described at my 20:39 post.

Have you checked under Language and then writing aids and edit these to ensure English UK is ticked ?

i am not thick as appears suggested and i tried all of those

checked under writing aids as suggested and is ok, but in settings the user interface has USA as default and it does not appear changeable.
