I have been using OpenOffice Writer for several years and have used it on the machine in question for almost two years. Tonight, the AutoCorrect function stopped working. Also, SpellCheck does not recognize anything as a misspelling. Both of these problems started tonight. Any suggestions?

It is possible that you accidentally deactivated these functions. To activate/deactivate spell check function you can go to Tool > Spelling and Grammar or just simply press F7 from your keyboard. You should also see the Spelling and grammar and Spell Check icons on your toolbar. If you don't see them, right click on your toolbar and choose Customize toolbar then just search for these options on the list, select them then hit OK.
