Description tuharsky 2006-02-23 12:45:43 UTC
Sometimes user deals with multilingual text. For example, part of the text is
written in english, part in slovak, part in german..

User wants to run spellchecker among those parts, but of course, each part with
the particular dictionary that is aplicable for the language the part is written.

Currently, it's quite complicated to change dictionary. One must go thru
settings, etc..

Howabout the feature that already exists in M$ Word. In the "Tools -> Language"
part of menu, new entry should appear, such as "select language".

Thanks for your suggestion. native-lang is not the right component for this, so
I will reassign it to another one. 
Thanks for submitting.

I can also say, that I worked on 4 systems this weekend, all of them are Debian
Sarge, all of them have IceWM installed.

1 and 2, GNOME works flawlessly, whereas IceWM has ugly bold font with OOo202.

3 is strange -the OOo has totally incorrect font (all diacritics gone) under
IceWM. The machine dosen't have GNOME installed and because of little disk
space, no way to try. I can not say this moment, how the older version of OOo20
behaves -I'll try ASAP (might be, until end of week)

4 is strange too -OOo under IceWM works well! I'll not be with the machine this
week anymore.

I took just packages snapshots from the machines, if somebody is of interest (I
haven't watch them for now)
