    Default Text autocompletion in libreOffice

    Hi,

    I'm translating an English text in "writer", using a copy of the original
    English file. I have switched the language of all the text to Spanish. But
    as I type, I am offered autocompletion of the text mostly with English
    words instead of Spanish.

    Do you know a way to change that?

    How have you switched the language to Spanish - by using Tools>Options>Language or by using Format>Character>Font? I haven't encountered this problem but I don't know why other than that I normally change both.

    I used Tools>Options>Language and toools/language/all text/spanish.

    The character dialog I did not see. I was looking in the style selection,
    modify "default style" and did not see language there, and IIRC it was
    there months ago. The character dialog you say has language blank - could
    be that. [...] Yes, tried a few words, that was it. Thanks!

    And today I see it in the style selection, font tab - and is set to
    Spanish. But I see the original user did not use styles at all, the style
    has a different font than the one actually used.
