Description José Miguel 2020-08-03 08:50:55 UTC
We have created a new spelling dictionary for the Ido language. It is an international auxiliary language (

However, we cannot add the dictionary because the name of the language does not appear in the list of possible languages in the Options menu of LibreOffice.

The ISO 639-1 code es [io]. The ISO 639-2 code is [ido]. I suppose it should be written as io-IO, because there are no differences between countries.

Thank you,

José Miguel.

Fwiw, if a dictionary is defined (e.g. in the dictionaries.xcu file's Locales property) for languages/locales that are not present as builtin then those are listed on top of the languages list surrounded by {} braces, for example {io}. This only in the text / font / character attribution, the default document language under Tools->Options lists only languages/locales with locale data.

However, the locale 'io-IO' would be wrong as the ISO 3166 country code 'IO' designates the British Indian Ocean Territory, see

Just use the plain language code 'io' instead.

I don't think we need yet another predefined entry in the language list for this.
