The Locale setting in LibreOffice > Options > Language Settings > Languages does not automatically match the Region setting in OS X > System Settings > Language & Region.
For example: In OS X (v. 10.9.3), language is set to English and region to Sweden, however in LibreOffice, both User interface and Locale setting are set to English (USA).
I'm not sure. But for me the local setting shows germany in LO 4.3beta2.
Could you check if the issue persists with that version for you? http://www.libreoffice.org/download/pre-releases/
If so, please set the bug back to UNCONFIRMED. Should it be solved set it to WORKSOFORME.
Same problem with 188.8.131.52.beta2, but now I understand what's wrong:
After changing my system's language to Swedish (region setting remained Sweden), LibreOffice's locale setting changed to Swedish (Sweden). Then I changed the region setting to England (this time the language remained Swedish), but even after reboot, LibreOffice's locale setting remained Swedish (Sweden).
So it seems that LibreOffice obtains its locale setting from OS X's language instead of OS X's region setting.
Imo this is NOTABUG.
LO checks OS X's language setting (the language the user if familiar with) and uses that. What's wrong with that? I'm not sure I see the use case for having langauge1 in OS X system and Language2 in LO.
Can you elaborate on that?
There are many languages out there that are not supported by Apple and LibreOffice, e.g. Icelandic or Faeroese. Therefore people usually set the system language to English, but set spell checker and regional formats (number, time, date, currency) according to the local language.
So if LibreOffice differentiate between UI language and locale setting, why not using OS X's UI locale setting by default?
ok, thanks for the info. sounds like a legit use case. setting to NEW
please retest with LibO 184.108.40.206 and tell if issue is still present
