Description dclemente 2009-03-20 12:34:36 UTC
At the bottom bar you can see a label which displays the language for the
currently selected text. If you click, you can change the language. Now you see
for instance these options:

- Catalan
- English (USA)
- None (Do not check spelling)
- More

When you click "More", you expect to see a list of additional languages appear.
Instead, it appears the "Text properties" dialog, and concretely in the *last
used tab*, which may be for instance "Background". This shocks the user since it
has nothing to do with language.

I suggest:

1. The user should be directed to the "Font" tab of the new dialog

2. In addition, maybe the "Font" tab is not the right place to hold the language
setting. The tab could be named "Font and language" instead, or even a new tab
"Language" be used just to hold the language settings. Then the "More" option
would take the user to a completely related dialog.

This has been reported to me by other users who couldn't find any language
related settings in that dialog.
