Description Mike Kaganski 2019-10-01 08:24:56 UTC
With "Ignore system input languages" (under Options->Language Settings->Languages) unchecked, when user switches keyboard layout (e.g. between English and Russian), in Writer the language of entered text changes accordingly (e.g., on Windows; there's a known problem on Linux - bug 108151, which is unrelated). On the other hand, the change doesn't happen in Impress, and the language is kept as it was defined to the text (originating from default language for the document, or from font settings of character properties). This triggers misdetections or unoperational spelling check.

Having en-US set as document default language (and having both en-US and ru-RU dictionaries installed), and typing some English word like "English ", then changing the layout to Russian and typing "русский" would produce spelling error on the latter word, considered to be English.

Tested with Version: (x64)
Build ID: 98b30e735bda24bc04ab42594c85f7fd8be07b9c
CPU threads: 12; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: GL; VCL: win; 
Locale: ru-RU (ru_RU); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded (but is definitely an old problem inherited from OOo).

> I believe you and set to NEW

I don't believe myself ;-P - my reports are invalid quite often... no problem if it waits UNCONFIRMED a little longer waiting for someone with Windows box to test.

The option is also ignored in Calc (see the attachment Description and suggestions to #tdf134628). Apparently it was done only for Writer when it was requested in a bug report for that module.

Dear Mike Kaganski,

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.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

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';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
