I have installed the "After the Deadline" extension for LibreOffice 3.6.3, but it does not pick up any grammatical errors, either as a wavy blue line while I type, or with a complete spell check of the document. How can I get this to work?

I had the same problem and thought it could be because of absent Java settings in LibreOffice. It was.

Take a look in Tools->Options->(Advanced/Java), and be sure that some type of Java is selected (either Oracle or OpenJRE).

Select Tools -> Options -> Language Settings -> Writing Aids. Click the Edit... button under the Available language modules section. Make sure the After the Deadline option is selected under the Grammar section.

Unfortunately for me I don't have "After the Deadline" item there despite correctly installed and seemingly active After the Deadline plugin. Something else can go wrong. Otherwise good spot. – Espinosa Dec 4 '13 at 23:00
