[Solved] Tools>Language question

Postby AAbulafia » Thu Mar 25, 2010 11:34 pm

I have a question regarding the default options on the meny. First maybe I should say that I use Writer with Swedish as the default option (but I translate all meny options here to English).

Under Tools>Language there are three options. For selection, For paragraph and For all text. When I hold the cursor over any of these a meny is shown:
English (US)
Swedish
None
More

(As stated above the second option Swedish is the default language). My question is this: I most often I use UK-spelling and would like that the first option shown should be English (UK) instead of English (US). Can I change so that the Writer does this?

Hi,

create a paragraph style "Text body en_uk" [Font > Language > English (UK)]
and you'll get that option ... →

* EDIT: 26 Mar 2010 00:50
* ... and create a new template [with the added style(s)] and set it as default – see →

Best would be to use styles – see →
