In WRITER you have the possibility to select a language from the menu TOOLS, but in CALC you unfortunately don't have this option.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open WRITER
2. Go to TOOLS -> LANGUAGE
Observation: You have the option to select the language for "For Selection", "For Paragraph" and "For all Text".
3. Open CALC
4. Go to TOOLS -> LANGUAGE
Observation: You have don't have an option to select a language. Hence, it would be good to have here also the option to select a language like "For Selection", "For the Whole Sheet" and "For all Sheets".
Operating System: Windows 8
Version: 188.8.131.52 release
language selection in calc is made through cell style.
It's possible to choose the language in [Ctrl+1] Menu/Format/Cell - Numbers tab for the cell format and Fonts tab for the cell language. And you can create a style for every language you like.
Thanks for your reply. I know this way, even if it has also still problems (see Bug 76714).
With my enhancement request I would like to further improve the UI by adding the possibility to also change the language with the menu TOOLS. I think this is important, more user-friendly, more consistent and intuitive, because if you are working with WRITER and then switch to CALC you will look vainly for the language option in the TOOLS menu. For a user it is not intuitive, that in CALC changing the language is different to WRITER.
Sounds good to me -> NEW.
Checked that those options are not available yet: LibO 4.4 RC1 on Win 8.1 32-bit.
