Any of you Linux-enabled translators have a handle on whether Open Office in its Norwegian version now incorporates a spell-checker, thesaurus and other goodies? My current version 1.1.3. (?) sure doesn't.

Just a note of thanks to Robert and Marc.

Both Bokmål and Nynorsk are there on my English version.

You may need to install the spelling dictionaries separately. Download from
