Poco Configuring FAQ - Every word is showing as mis-spelled

Q: When I open a new email to write I get a message that the dictionary needs editing. No matter what I do it doesn't seem to use the dictionary and every word I type is underlined in red as if misspelled. What do I do?
I was trying to run it with just the Amer-add on, once I check both British/English version and the AmerAd-on everything was fine!

"AmerAdd" is a supplemental dictionary containing only those words where the American spelling is different from the British. You can also configure the spell checking so that it will reject British spellings.
