Description Rishabh Singla 2015-03-27 18:33:04 UTC
Created attachment 114407 [details]
Composite file with 5 screenshots

When LibreOffice Writer is launched afresh, any instance of the letter i is automatically capitalized to I [please see screenshots 1 and 2]. However, when a New OpenDocument Text.odt is created in Windows Explorer using right-click menu, and this document is double-clicked to launch LibreOffice Writer, then an instance of i is not automatically corrected to I [please see screenshots 3, 4 and 5]. This is annoying, since it makes me go back to Microsoft Word.
Comment 1 A (Andy) 2015-03-28 00:01:03 UTC
Reproducible with LO, Win 8.1
Comment 2 Matthew Francis 2015-04-05 13:04:09 UTC
Looking at the screenshots, the issue appears to be that the language of the documents where the issue occurs is set to "[None]"

Comment 4 Zeki Bildirici 2015-09-13 20:32:16 UTC
Same behaviour on KDE - Kubuntu 15.05, LO Sürüm:

Plus, the file created from desktop has the default language as Times New Roman i/o Liberation Serif (Default).

Comment 9 Dominik Lenné 2019-10-16 20:21:35 UTC
The behaviour seems to have changed now. 
OS:                w10
actual LO version:
system language:   german

create file via - explorer - context menu - new - opendocument text.
open file via double click

expected result: 
language is set to system language ("standard")

actual result:
language is set to "english(usa)"

reproducible: always.

I would like to point out that this bug is of some importance,
as this is just the way the "normal" user will create documents.
And he for sure won't search for workarounds, bug reports etc.
But will every single time change the language manually.
So, please, have a look at that.

Comment 14 Dieter 2022-08-12 06:38:58 UTC
Tested with

Version: (x64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 184fe81b8c8c30d8b5082578aee2fed2ea847c01
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 19044; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI: en-GB
Calc: CL

Actual (and for me expected) behaviour
If you create a new document from desktop document language is the one that is defined in Tools -> Options -> Language Settings -> Languages -> Default Languages for Documents
