Description Paul F. Johnson 2006-01-22 08:12:58 EST
Description of problem:
I have English and German in the same document
(usually German - English translation). To use the German dictionary for
the German, I select the text, right mouse, select character and change
the language for the highlighted text to German (Germany).

When I press F7, the German dictionary is used (which is correct),
however, if I need to add a word, only the English dictionary is

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a language pack. Type in some words in the new language
2. Highlight the text, change the language of the text to the new language
3. Press F7 to check the spelling. Click Add to add a new word
Actual results:
Only the default language for the file is available

Expected results:
The language of the text being spell checked should be used when adding new words

You got to set this up beforehand, the default user dictionary is "all
languages". So you need to use tools->options->openoffice.org->language
settings->writing aids and "new dictionary". give it a name and select german
for it's language instead of "all". Now with F7, you can add the word to this
german-only dictionary. So the word will be not-misspelled when it's lang is set
to german, but mispelled otherwise.
