Spell Check is only working in English

  • Hi there,

    I have added and activated french and spanish to my language settings but unfortunately the spell check only works in English which is the main language of Windows.

    I already unistalled Opera, and reinstalled.
    I have also restored Opera.
    I removed and added again languages.

    Nothing helps !!! I have spent hours on this and I start to desesperate.

    I really need this working.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

  • Generic French can be selected here. For Spanish it seems that only some of them will work.

  • Thank you @leocg for your response.
    Unfortunately this is in my opinion not the issue. I have been able to install languages bt Opera is using only English for spellcheck.

  • Even you selecting those languages to be used in the spell checker?

  • Recently I started a topic in this forum about this problem: zero reactions.

    In the meantime I found out:

    If you choose German (Germany) and French (France): no spell check possible. Grey does not move to blue.

    But with German (German) and French (French) it works.

    Yes, I selected English and French in in the spell checker. But French is ignored. Even if French is the language for my Opera interface.

    French is the language of Opera
    English is the language of my Windows 10.

    @lapsang I noticed this also. But this is not the issue. I've selected French and I can activate it (in blue). But unfortunately it does not work.
