[Upstream] [hardy] OpenOffice auto correct notification is a persistant annoyance.

Bug #192784 reported by Kevin on 2008-02-18
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
openoffice.org (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: openoffice.org

Short version: Love the autocorrect in OO 2.3.0, don't like the autocorrect notification icon.

Longer version:
OpenOffice 2.3.0 autocorrect notification (light bulb & life preserver ring) comes up all the time, doesn't disappear after a word or two of typing and there isn't an easy option to turn off the notifications, not the autocorrect. Even more aggravating is that I spend most of my typing time in OpenOffice at the bottom of the page where the notification comes up and it won't go away even if I type right up to it and under the icon. Please make this go away.

This bothers me a lot as well. Is there a solution for version 3.0?
