Language module change in Writing aids option isn't stored, not even remembered!
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open LO
2. Tools/Options/Language Settings/Writing Aids
3. Click first Edit button for language modules
4. Change language
5. Click Close
6. repeat step 3 again
=> language hasn't changed
=> language should be changed

I could reproduce this too with LO Debian package 22.214.171.124
Confirming on Windows:
Build ID: e038dfdf05096edc0e9c38c9a686b5d23ba39352

TinderBox: Win-x86@42, Branch:master, Time: 2017-09-14_23:31:01
Locale: nl-NL (nl_NL); Calc: CL
Not sure if it should be remembered or not, though. But i'm probably missing something =)
I reproduce this behavior but I do not know if that is a bug or not.
Perhaps the language shown as starting value in the dropdown list is defined from the locale.
Best regards. JBF
Thank you for your feedback.
Anybody knows who may help here? At least to know if it's a bug or not.

The UX advise team is all-knowing :-)

Stuart, Cor: don't blame us.
Strange, on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit en-US with
Build ID: fc670f637d4271246691904fd649358ce2e7be59
CPU threads: 8; OS: Windows 6.19; UI render: GL;
TinderBox: Win-x86@62-TDF, Branch:MASTER, Time: 2017-09-07_21:52:56
Locale: en-US (en_US); Calc: CL
On TDF production TB62 build all components of the Tools -> Options -> Language Settings: Writing Aids respond to selection and selection is retained between LO sessions.
Hunspell Spell Checker
Lightproof grammar checker (Russian)
Lightproof grammar checker (English)
And on the TB42/TB39 builds, no language modules are present, so guess they're not built.

Cloph, any idea?
Just for the record, on pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I could still reproduce this.
UX wise the selection should be stored. So it's a bug.
Repro 7.4+. But I don't think that Expectation is correct.
It's not that language should be changed, it's checkbox of used feature.
Change language and turn off spellchecker. On next open, it remains turned off.
Based on my shallow understanding of this and how I understand Help, I close NAB.
Please set New if explained differently.

Bug has keyword "needsDevAdvice". So we should respect this request from design-team and wait for devolper input before closing it as NAB.
You can configure writing aids for multiple languages. For example, hyphenation on for German and off for English. The dropdown is a selection for the list below not the language definition for new documents, which is done in language > languages > default language for new documents. => NAB
