Description Mike Kaganski 2019-10-01 10:13:17 UTC
Starting from, setting a language to a frame in slide master, and creating a new slide based on that master, gives a frame with initial language.

1. Create a new blank presentation
2. Open Master Slides sidebar; right-click on the only one master displayed in "Used in This Presentation" (Default), and choose "Edit Master..."
3. In the opened master, right-click at the border of the main frame (where a sample outline is displayed), and choose "Character..."
4. In Character dialog, open Font tab, and choose Language to anything different (if Arabic/Asian scripts are enabled, it's enough to only change Western script language) -> OK
5. Menu View->Normal
6. Menu Slide->New Slide (Ctrl+M)
7. Check the language of the frame of the newly created slide (using procedure from steps 3-4)

Expected: the language should be same as set at step 4
Actual: the language is same as before step 4
