Description J22Gim 2018-01-10 16:19:49 UTC
Description:
Sometimes I open a random document to edit and I don't see other dictionary than English (default). Some other times, I have more dictionaries (which I installed without error messages). I don't know what could be the cause, and I can not reproduce it always. So I wanted to ask you guys what should I look for or what kind of information should I retrieve when it happens so it helps to debug.
Thanks!

Actual Results:  
Only the English (default) dictionary is available to choose.

Expected Results:
All installed dictionaries are available to choose from.


Reproducible: Sometimes


User Profile Reset: No

Thank you for reporting the bug. To be certain the reported issue is not
related to corruption in the user profile, could you please reset your
Libreoffice profile ( https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile ) and re-test?

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the issue is still present

Yes, it happens exactly the same after reseting the user profile.

I also noted that sometimes Writer "remembers" that there is a dictionary installed just after I start typing in language other than the default (US English)

In some other ocassions, Writer doesnt seem to show the installed dictionary as option (neither in Tools->Language in the menu or in the "state bar" at the bottom of the document). The dictionary appear as installed in the Extension Manager at all times.

If you can write reproducible steps, this can be tested.
If not, there's no point in having it open with some random issue.
Comment 4 J22Gim 2018-01-24 12:20:48 UTC
Try with the following attachment. It's very weird:

1. open the test file
2. put the cursor on the SECOND LINE.
3. check the language options (both by clicking the bottom bar or in Tools -> Options
4. I see two English options: English (UK) and English (USA)
5. Now put the cursor on the FIRST LINE.
6. Now I see three options! English (UK), English (USA) and... Frisian!!!!

Created attachment 139328 [details]
Test file

Depending on when the cursor is located at, you get different language options.
Cursor @ Line 2: English (UK) and English (USA).
Cursor @ Line 1: English (UK), English (USA) and Frisian.

Regarding the file: why would a 2-lines-of-text ODT file weight 1.1MB? Does it include the dictionaries?

Could you explain how you created it ?
Comment 8 J22Gim 2018-01-25 13:44:11 UTC
Another test:
1. Open Writer and create a new file
2. write the following two lines:
001 fris
002 

3. If my cursor is on the 1st line, the language options are English (USA) and ... Norwegian! ("Norwegian, Nynorsk")
4. But if my cursor is on the 2nd line, I only see English (USA) as language option!!

--------------------------

Xisco Faulí, I can't remember how that one was created. But in the example below it is a new fresh simple ODT file.

--------------------------
Maybe Writer is trying to automatically detect the language based on the word? but is that how it should work, even if I obviously don't have any Norwegian dictionary add-in installed?
