Re: [tdf-discuss] trouble with writer after instaling 3.5.1

Hi Everyone,

I am not a geek, so I will probably stick out like a sore thumb.  I am a
retiree who is trying his hand a writing.
My use of lib re-office is pretty much limited to the writer.  Yesterday I
received notification of an update available and downloaded 3.5.1 for
windows in  English for U.S.   After installing the update I noticed that
the writer was now
defaulting to English UK.  I thought that I might have not selected
properly, so I downloaded again and installed the
updates again, with the  same results.  I next removed the program form my
computer and downloaded again, and
re-installed, again with the same results.  This defaulting to UK English
had happened a while back  with open office, and it was a bear to work with
when trying to write as the program kept trying to use the UK English, and
correcting it was a chore.  Is there something that I am missing?  Or is
there an easy fix for this?  I have removed the program and re-installed

Well, this is a change from what I usually get - it has always been a
struggle to
change from US to UK English for me!

Have you tried going to Tools > Language > For all Text > More...  There you
can change the Default language for Western documents.  Look in the drop
down list of languages.  If English (USA) has ABC with a tick against it
all you have to do is to change to that and click OK.  (If the other
settings are UK, you may want to change them as well).

However, if there is no ABC and a tick against English (USA) it means you
need to go and get the version for English (USA) from here.

If that still does not work, then report back, as something is amiss with

(also a retiree)
