Thank you, Allan! I was just wrestling with this yesterday. What I
ended up doing was selecting the USA spell checker. Tools -> Language
-> For all Text -> English (USA), under the assumption that the US
spell checker was better than no spell checker at all. When I saw your
note I installed hunspell-en-ca, set the language back to "English
(Canada) and can spell "color" as "colour" again!

Bye the way, almost skipped your email completely. Took a bit of
thinking to recognize that LO stood for Libre Office. I was taught to
write for the reader.
