Thread: Libreoffice spell check suggestions not visible

  1. #1

    Default Libreoffice spell check suggestions not visible

    Libreoffice spell check suggestions not visible, they are installed & working; but the suggestions are white text on a white background, so no one can read them. I've tried changing themes, both local & global.

    Wow, I hardly ever use that function. Just tried it, it's just the same here. Both, German or English, same version of Libreoffice.

    A bug report seems appropriate.

    Note that I never use that, either.

    Also able to replicate the issue and have been been playing around with this myself.

    Reported a bug upstream: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/....cgi?id=142148

    After which I discovered that "libreoffice-qt5" is implicated in this issue, temporarily remove that package and the spell check suggestions are visible.

    Same here with default German language and dictionaries – plus English and French dictionaries …
    • With the addition that, without the Qt5 LibreOffice package, Writer first complained and then crashed – without a core dump – on exiting my F7 Spell Checker test document …

    For anyone following this...

    In response to the bug report at the document foundation:

    https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/....cgi?id=142148

    it's indicated this is likely an openSUSE specific issue, so I've now opened a bug report at the (openSUSE) bugzilla:

    https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1185792

    Following an update (on a Tumbleweed install which also exhibited the same bug) of libreoffice to:

    Version: 7.1.3.2 / LibreOffice Community
    Build ID: 10(Build:2)
    CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 5.12; UI render: default; VCL: kf5
    Locale: en-GB (en_GB.UTF-8); UI: en-GB
    Calc: threaded

    This issue appears resolved.

    Not for Leap 15.2 right now.
    LibreOffice 7.1.3.2 is available for Leap from experimental repos.
