Description clemty 2014-10-25 17:04:41 UTC
The "Format" -> "Character" dialog shows all supported languages in the Language dropdown list; most users will only use very few of these. Selecting a language could be made easier by having a checkbox "Filter list" which restricts the languages shown in the list to the following:

- all languages used in the present document
- OS display language (keyboard locale?)
- LibreOffice display language
- (all languages with spellcheck dictionary installed?)
- (all languages installed in the e.g. Windows "input languages" bar?)

I am not sure whether such a filter is practical (question to the Design and Developer teams), but if yes, it could also list the last used languages in the local LO installation.
