    Müll! LO bleibt ständig damit hängen, Bereiche werden ständig neu geprüft, obwohl sie ignoriert wurden, zu umständlich! Nicht wirklich brauchbar!

  • David Regenspan 21 de out de 2022 00:51 (44 days ago)

    Using LT 5.9 on LO 7.4 under Windows 11. Works well in many respects, but it interferes with autocorrect, specifically "always correct to", which results in blank spaces. Also seems to deactivate itself when the computer comes out of sleep mode. Its spellchecker interferes with LO spellchecker and must be turned off.

    This extension operates, but part of the interface of it is impossible to observe. Additionally, some of what it corrects is correct, because the dictionary of it is inadequate.

  • John Twenty 8 de jun de 2022 10:19 (6 months ago)

    This is absolutely one of the most useful extensions out there!!

  • ooonea.eth 14 de mai de 2022 15:36 (7 months ago)

    For me the best extension there is. I also use it on iPhone, in browsers and other applications. Super recommended.

    Please see https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112723 for "passive component registration".

    Don't get me wrong: LangaugeTool does what it says on the tin. Although some of the grammar suggestions might strike (especially) native speakers a bit as "pedantic grammar police", it works well in LO.
    Having said this, the LanguageTool devs should have another thought about the many different languages now packed by default in LT. It is certainly no exaggeration to state that 99% of LT users now are forced to hold multiple languages that they don't speak, use, nor need. However, the inclusion of all mentioned languages standard makes the application very large in size, and slows down its operation.
    So why not, following the basic practice, provide the central operating core, and let *the user* decide what languages they want/ need, thus increasing both size and making LT more nimble.

    To install the Windows version Oracle Java is needed.
    After install of the extension click the configure button.
    The button will respond after a few minutes, please wait for it. This is probably due to the compilation of the Java code. After the first use, it is very responsive and great for the Dutch language.

    Doesn't work at all.

    Made a whole account just to share that after installing it, it doesn't do anything. I can right click for a drop-down, which I then cannot use. Clicking any icons or the 'options' menu does nothing.

    Incredibly frustrating and disappointing.

  • John Joe 8 de fev de 2022 11:46 (10 months ago)

    I have installed it into LibreOffice 7.3 (flatpak version). But the LT toolbar is completely unresponsive, including the "Options" button
