No spelling in OE

  Madrat 23:45 11 Nov 2009

Just got a new note book running XP and after setting up I have noticed I have no spell check in OE. It should be there but for the life of me I cant find any way to turn it on.

If you do not Have Microsoft Word on the Computer OE will not Spell Check as it uses Word to do it. However you can get a free one off the net to do it

es just found that out. All the programs seam to have a US dictionary and no option for UK

Check Regional Settings are British English also Keyboard

It has works installed and that has UK spell check.
So I don't understand why there isn't any in OE.

As woodchip says you need MS WORD to get the spellcheck. It doesn't work with WORKS.
