    Default Libre office Spell Checker not working

    I have installed Leap 42.1 and noticed LibreOffice 5 does not check for spelling errors for UK English. Can someone advise what I could look at or check to get this working?
    The packages installed are:
    Code:

    UK spell checker works in LibreOffice 5 on Leap 42.1 when default spell checker is altered from US spell check to UK spell check in languages.
    Spell check UK checked against a short list of 5 US/UK variants all USA varients offerd to correct to uk

    Thank you for your responses.

    My installation started from Leap 42.1 Beta and upgraded to RC and then to Gold Master. In addition to this a switched to the LibreOffice repo when installing the GM.

    Even after deleting the LibreOffice setup files, reverting to the OSS repo and creating a new user the spell checker did not work.

    I was unable to determine the reasons for it not working because I simply carried out a clean install of Leap 42.1 after which it simply worked.

    Thank you.
