Unhappy -- is error in OOo writer


something--something is spelling error!
how to disable this as an error?

xxxx--xxx is not supose to be an error spelling right?
how to disable the OOo writer from considering this as error?

for example:-

Christ made the sacrifices one time--enough for all time

time--enough will be spelling error!

It could have been most likely by accident in which he thought it froze when submitting it but it did in fact posted it. This one will be closed though once a mod reaches it in this forum.

It could be that you have an older version of Open Office.
The auto correct feature has a box labeled "Replace dashes" ; when that is checked on the older version of OO, it replaces it with a big long dash. At that point, spell checker gives an error. If the box is unchecked, it didn't give an error.
On another computer, I have Open Office 1.1.0 and that didn't give the error even when the "Replace dashes" box is checked.

Please do not reply to posts in which they've double posted and either another member points that out and or a mod as the thread is going to get closed.

Regards.
