Thanks for the good software. I'm glad I donate.
Happens after reboot of program.
Happens after uninstall of older or newer versions of LO.
Happens after safe mode restart
HARDWARE - Imac 2011 OSX 10.10.2 Yosemite. Has happened on my 2009 iMac and OSX 10.6.8 as I recall but less so.
Lang pref set to English (USA)
In an existing doc, Tools > Spell check dialogue pauses and populates the box with English (USA). After first use, lang dictionary defaults to French. If I continue clicking to spell check, then it cycles to German, Dutch or Italian and then back to English. No definite pattern here of how many goofs before gets back to English. Only one English then cycles thru these other dictionaries.
In the past this only happened occasionally. Today, happening exclusively, every time, for the first time
Forums suggest no way exists to delete unwanted foreign dictionaries.
spell checker disabled making LO mostly useless for writing.
Restarting in safe mode and deleting user profile created no change in the problem.
User Profile Reset: yes. Tried today. The safe mode screen does NOT display RESTART until several choices in. Not good.

@Bruce: hmm, I have my LibreOffice lang preferences set to French, and my my macOS keyboard language set to French too.
If I open a new Writer document, type some text in English, and then try to assign the en-US dictionary via the Spellchecker tool, the dropdown menu repeatedly gets set back to French. This would be both a bug and a regression, although possibly not the same thing as you are seeing ?
So I reset the lang prefs within LO to en-US, for everything (UI, spellcheck and default language for documents), and restarted LO.
When I went to check spelling of my test document in English, the spellchecker dialog displayed French as the language. I can then set this dropdown to en-US, but the spellchecker still considers the text to be in French and suggests French language corrections. If I close the dialog after setting to en-US and then re-open the spellchecker, the default spellchecking language is set back to French.

Can anybody reproduce this problem with 6.0.3, and give *exact* reproduction instructions please, and attach the document being handled.
Any update here?
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated yesterday with French UI, here are the steps I did:
- clean profile
- open Writer with a brand new doc
- type a sentence in English
- open Tools/Spelling
=> French language is put by default
- click correct
=> French language is still put by default
- click close button
=> dialog closes obviously
- open Tools/Spelling (again)
=> French language is still put by default
Did I miss something?
Following Tor's comment, let's put this one to NEEDINFO then.
Julienl this bug is indicated as being macOS-specific, so testing on Debian seems pointless?

Indeed, it has been confirmed only on Mac. Let's put it back to NEW.

Bruce: can you help with this? Please test with 6.4.x
Dear Bruce Dickson,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
Tested on macOS 13.2.1 with LO 18.104.22.168 and 7.6 alpha0+ could no reproduce.
All language settings in LO are in en-US, but my keyboard is German. I have dictionaries for both.
Spell check sticks to the document language, en-US.
Alex and Bruce, there is no repro since 5.3. Can you please check that this can be closed as "works for me"?
I still see an issue with :
Version: 22.214.171.124 (AARCH64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: fcbaee479e84c6cd81291587d2ee68cba099e129
CPU threads: 8; OS: Mac OS X 13.3; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: osx
Locale: fr-FR (fr_FR.UTF-8); UI: fr-FR
See the screenshot for the LO language configuration, and next to it, the spellchecker dialog.
The macOS language and keyboard are set to FR.
The text (which can't be seen beneath the dialog windows, is all in French.
The language indicator at the bottom of the page is saying that the default paragraph language is French.
And yet, the spellchecker is reporting that no "Aucune" dictionary is installed and active, and that the only choice available in the dropdown menu one of many forms of Arabic.
The test text reads as follows:
"Ceci est un test de vérification de langue pour du texte en français, puis je ferai le même test avec un texte en anglais."
For me, the issue is still there.

The test text I typed in shows up as French in the Character menu when I select it with the mouse, but the spellchecker still fails to recognize the text as French and fails to load the French dictionary.
Alex, can you please test again a 7.5.3 pre-release as there were a few spellcheck fixes since 7.5.1.
