Hello
I Run The Open Office Suite Since 1999 And Generally Its As Good As Ms Effort, But I Have One Serious Problem With Ver 2.4 :-

If I Open A Word Doc And Enter Txt Then The Speller In Writer Highlights An Error, If I Right Click For Suggestions And Correction The Pc Goes Into A Long Burst Of Disk Thrashing And The App Becomes Non Responsive, Then Eventually It Clears Its Throat And Continues As If Nothing Happened (no Spelling Either)

I Did Try The Oop Forums And Even Mailed The Guy Attributed With Writing The Spell Checker But Never Even Got A Reply, So Please Cast Some Light On The Matter For Me. Nb: If I Select Spelling From The Menu Manualy It Will Work And Whilst Calc Had The Same Problem In Ver 2.3 Its Fixed In 2.4.

Maybe try a reinstall? Also you might want to check for maybe spell checker addons.

You could also check and see if there's a way to stop each word in a sentence starting with a capital letter - or does that only happen in TSG?
Joking aside, using capitals for every word does make it difficult to read, particularly with the lack of puntuation.
