    Since LanguageTool version 5.1.3 the update mechanism via Extension Manager does not work for me anymore. It might happen that other users are also stuck with this version now.

    I would love to use this product which seems great BUT I have a large document of 400,000 words and every build I have tried to use would result in Writer crashing to desktop after 1 to 5 minutes. No warnings or errors - just instant closing of Writer. Memory use goes to around 3 to 4 Gb during the checking of the document and then the crash occurs. Windows 10 64 with 32 Gb RAM. Would also crash in Win 7 64.

    An update: as per the "our checklist" above, having a Mac I installed Java for OS X as suggested there (https://languagetooler.freshdesk.com/en/support/solutions/articles/44002037684-mac-specfic-issues), but only version 5.3 works without error messages.

    • D Oct 5, 2021, 3:09 PM (21 days ago)

      Update from myself. Unfortunately the error messages continue also with version 5.3

  • D Sep 29, 2021, 1:48 PM (27 days ago)

    New error message, I hope that the developers can help!

    Can confirm what’s been said so far.
    With
    - MacOS Big Sur 11.4
    - Oracle JDK 12.0.2
    the last working Language Tool Version is 4.x.

    With 5.x, LT just sits there in the menu. You can click on anything you like and it doesn’t do a thing. No error messages, no nothing.

    • J. Martin Sep 26, 2021, 3:13 AM (31 days ago)

      Sorry, forgot the LibreOffice version:
      - LibreOffice 7.2.1.2

  • adi maty Aug 19, 2021, 10:23 PM (2 months ago)

    i think this is a virus cause edge did not let me download it saying it can harm my computer.i unistalled while trying to update it and after my computer works smoothly.so i dont nees anymore this addon

  • M ark Jun 4, 2021, 4:30 PM (5 months ago)

    At first, I couldn't get it to work at all. I didn't get any error message whatsoever (such as: wrong Java, wrong LibreOffice version, problem installing LT etc). Installing a different version of Java didn't help. After removing and re-installing LT, I was able to make it work.
