In addition to the OK button that appears when you decide to change the UI language, it would be nice to have a restart now type button.
Valid enhancement proposition.
Best regards. JBF
I am suggesting it for the UI language dialog, but i think this restart button concept can apply to other dialogs which also require a restart.
See svtools/uiconfig/ui/restartdialog.ui and include/svtools/restartdialog.hxx
The best approach is typically to add another "reason" to the restartdialog.hxx and the .ui file and to use executeRestartDialog when you want to restart libreoffice
But ideally, of course, this should Just Work with no need to restart LibreOffice.
If i remember correctly, with Ubuntu you also have to restart the desktop session in order for a user to switch the language.
