Description Milan 2016-12-19 22:44:35 UTC
In the AutoCorrect in Options cannot been set a language different from Locale Settings (Tools -> Options -> Language Settings -> Languages -> Locale Setting), therefore English/Czech quotes (which are not the same) do not work properly. In the AutoCorrect settings is particular Locale Settings language greyed and cannot be changed.
I have documents with texts in two languages and need the AutoCorrect working correctly in the particular texts and languages by simply putting a cursor in the text.
This bug was confirmed to me by other users of LO too.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set language of the Character different from the one set in Locale.
2. Go to Format, AutoCorrect, AutoCorrect Options, Options.
3. The Language is grey and cannot be changed - and doesn't change even if the cursor is placed into a text in different language.


Actual Results:  
In the text, AutoCorrect changes quotes according to the locale settings regardless the language set in Character.

Expected Results:
AutoCorrect language should be set simply by putting a cursor in the particular text.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes.

As you talk about quotes, I guess you mean Localized options tab specifically.

I confirm the problem.

The problem was solved partly. The English/Czech quotes now work properly simply by putting a cursor in the particular text.
Nevertheless, a language different from Locale Settings still cannot be set in AutoCorrect Options.
