Description kiharoa 2008-05-24 19:32:07 UTC

From the menu-bar, select "Tools|Options"
From the Options Window, select "Language Settings|Languages"
Open drop down box "Western"

This issue also affects OOo 3.0 Beta.
This issue has been confirmed under Windows Vista only.

Have changed the component category to what I think is more appropriate?  And
re-assigned issue to the owner of the component.

Confirmed issue exists on Linux, so I think it's safe to say the problem is
Platform and OS agnostic - updated categories accordingly.

Set target milestone I would like the issue fixed in.

No word from OOo devs - are there details missing?

After querying the issue-tracker... I found that I will need to supply locale
data for

Have corrected the sub-component category (for OOo 3.0 I'm guessing it should be
i18npool not localedata).

Have also re-assigned the issue to myself (I hope), until I supply the required
xml files.

It isn't possible to get this done in 3.0, because we are near before code
freeze. I change the target to 3.x.

kiharoa, please provide the needed file and send this issue to He will then decide which target is possible.

SBA: This issue has a target set but is still in state of "Unconfirmed".
Please re-check with OOo 3.0 or younger if it is (still) valid.
Then confirm it or set an appropriate resolution.
Thank you.

unfortunately it was missed to reassign the issue to er, so he didn't get a
chance to look at it.

document text, it isn't possible to choose it in the Tools|Options → Language
Settings dialog.

Thanks a lot.

Surely not a defect but an enhancement, and as long as we don't have locale data
it doesn't make sense to set a target.
