Problem:

Why is the Optimal Trace spell check option disabled?

Resolution:

Please note only English (EN) is supported for Optimal Trace spell check.  This is noted in the release notes. The release notes for OT5.1 (when internationalization was introduced) specifically states that spell checking for non-English is not supported.  http://supportline.microfocus.com/Documentation/books/OptimalTrace/Doc/CI51/HTML/OT_Server_Release_Notes.htm

If you are using an English operating system browse to the following path on the problematic machine:
C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\Optimal Trace\Optimal Trace Enterprise Edition
 
Open the file named default.properties using notepad.
 
Scroll down until you see the text line:
"enableSpellCheck=0"
 
Replace the 0 value with 1 to show: 
"enableSpellCheck=1"
 
Save the changes to default.properties then restart Optimal Trace.
