Description Marco A.G.Pinto 2017-04-09 12:29:07 UTC
[13:16] <marcoagpinto> just wondering if I should add Roman numbers to the GB speller (some are already in) because they appear as typos
[13:17] <marcoagpinto> for example: "Chapter XVII" will appear as typo
[13:20] <marcoagpinto> is there a way for LO to automatically ignore them?
[13:20] <marcoagpinto> possibly a future enhancement?
[13:23] <marcoagpinto> well, I will open a case in bugzilla
[13:23] <marcoagpinto> :)
[13:23] <marcoagpinto> if no solution is found, I will add 1-30

l,c,d,m not to forget. The format knows lower case and upper case numerals. 

So except from the upper case rule I'd say we better not ignore the roman numerals.

I have added Roman numerals to the GB speller and the PT speller maintainers have done the same with Portuguese (Portugal).
