Description jnoreiko 2005-04-09 20:12:41 UTC
Throughout the Tools -> Options dialogue system there are a number of checkboxes
marked 'For the current document only'. One example is setting the language for
the current document.

This placement of document-specific options in a dialogue box that holds
application-wide settings is confusing and counter-intuitive. (I know Microsoft
does it, but that's no excuse ;)
It also throws up contradictions. Eg, I mark the current document as being in
German. Then later on, I want to change the general preference for all documents
-- but the options dialogue shows me the setting I marked for this document.
What happens if I uncheck the box and change the language? Will I change the
global preference? Will the current document also be affected and revert to
using the default setting?

These sorts of settings should be moved to a dialog box that only affects the
current document, eg File -> Properties.
