Multiple language support in OpenOffice 2 - Cannot change default document language
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:16 EST
Description of problem:
I find it is no longer possible to change the default document language - it is
hard wired to the interface language.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Worked in openoffice.org-*-1.9.125-1.1.0.fc4.i386.rpm
Tools -> Options...
Language Settings -> Languages
In the lower part of the pane, there is "Default languages"
The label "Western" and associated drop-down is now grayed out. The value is
taken from the Interface Language in the same pane. So if I change the user
interface to "Italiano" and restart OO, I then see the document default language
as "Italiano" - but I cannot change it back to English, even just for the
current document, as is the expected behavior. I have verified this with just
the Italian and German language packs installed.
A French user reports the same problem on the users mailing list.
it takes the settings from the locale, it should be possible to override for the
current document though, and that will be enabled in the next update
