Thesaurus Fails After Upgrade to Apache OpenOffice 3.4
Why does the Thesaurus cease to function after I upgrade to OOo 3.4?
The problem is in the English language extension that is included in the EN-us version of AOO. The extension has a number of variants; Canadian, Australian and others. One of the variants is causing a conflict with the US dictionary. The solution is to remove all the English dictionaries except English spelling any hyphenation dictionaries & thesaurus 2010.08.16.
To Remove Dictionaries
- Open AOO
- From the Menu Toolbar select Tools > Extension Manager
- Select the dictionary to delete
- Click the Delete Button
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 until English spelling any hyphenation dictionaries & thesaurus 2010.08.16 is the only English dictionary.
- Close Extension Manager
- Close and restart AOO
