Draw file with screen shot and explanations
Non of the installed languages is available for selection. Thus spellchecker cannot be used.
- English (default)
Non of the selected languages is offered for choice.
Languages offered are not installed:
- Hangul (Korean)
Steps to reproduce:
1 – Open Calc
2 – Type text in German
3 – Tools / Languages => non of the installed languages is offered
Non of the installed languages is available for selection.
Selection of installed languages is available for selection to do spell checking.
Similar (or same) problem is observed in Draw but not yet reported in other applications.
In LibO 126.96.36.199 the same problem is observed
Operating System: Windows XP
Version: 188.8.131.52 release
An enhancement request.
Thanks for looking already into this report. However, as there is no workaround (at least I haven't found one yet), may I suggest to flag this as bug and not as an enhancement? Spell checking is not possible with German or Dutch text.Only English works.
You can assign a language via Format/Cells menu. It won't probably work until the application is restarted, but that is fdo#60062.
Thanks for the hint with Format / Cells however this window does not contain and tab for language settings.
Selecting a cell and Tools / Languages is also not possible because non of the installed languages show up; only Korean and Chinese
Additionally I just made test with Draw. It is not possible to use the spell checker for German and Dutch. Thus the same situation as in Calc.
I am sorry but for me this is not an enhancement but a rather serious bug.
Curiosity made me checking also the situation with Impress. It is the same as for Calc and Draw.
In Writer, I reported this earlier, German works, I can select the language but Dutch is not recognized, instead Afrikaans is shown. Dutch is installed and Afrikaans not.
Language lists in those menus are built in a way not related to spelling.
@Urmas - I understand your comment 6 the way that the menu of languages which appears when opening Tools / Languages is independet of
- the languages installed
- the language used?
Addtionally I do not agree with the fact that "spell checking is not possible with German or Dutch text" is an enhancement request but a bug.
Such considerations are pushing people away from a great tool called LibO.At least I will have a first look at AOO when I need to spell check in German or Dutch.
I still see the bug in Version: 184.108.40.206
Build ID: bc356b2f991740509f321d70e4512a6a54c5f243
and asked a question with detailed description in AskLibO: http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/42885/dictionairies-dont-work-in-calc/
I would really be happy if this problem could be solved and I expect that very many other users would like this fix very much.
