Thanks, I am not on the Documentation list.

Chapter 3, Page 22-23

I missed that, but I was going through the full book of 0200WG3-WriterGuide.odt.

What I want to describe to the IT people and the Language teachers is how the students can use LibreOffice to type up and spell check their assignments. They may have English and Spanish/French/German, which ever language they are studying, in the same document. I wanted to show them that they can easily do the spell checking in several languages in the same document. As far as I can tell, you cannot do this in MSO.

I want the local schools to have LibreOffice as an option for their computers, and have the students be able to download a copy for their home computers. I would love to have the language teachers tell their students about LibreOffice, but I need to somehow get the message to the students about LibreOffice as their option over having to deal with MSO. How may of these students will be asking for new computers so they would have LibreOffice for free instead of buying a copy of MSO for that new computer. It is too late to start a campaign for those students going to college this summer/fall.

On the page
we need to get more info there about using the package for grades 7-12, not just college level students. There should be more info, like the multi-language option for the student taking language classes. New York requires two years of non-English language classes to be able to graduate.

I think this info, with screenshots, is in Chapter 3, Working with Text, in the
Writer Guide, but I could be misremembering the chapter. It definitely is in the
Writer Guide somewhere, because I remember writing it!

Tom, I believe he  is asking about the way to mark certain passages as one
language or another,  which is not automatic. Once the passages are marked, the
spelling checker knows  which language to use and does so automatically.

. for marketing it to  schools

Does anyone know where in the  documentation where the "Language>For

option is  explained?

I am looking to write up a sheet that   explains spell checking a document

English and either Spanish,  French, or  German, text included.  I cannot

this  info anywhere.

I want to  use that information as  a marketing point for the local school
districts to use   LibreOffice in their computer labs for students working

papers  for their  language classes.

I would rather use  the text and images already created,  than making up

  information myself.  I lost much of my writing skills  with my last  two
strokes.  Since I use to work for one of the local  school  districts before

had the stroke, I know that having  such an ability would be a  good feature

market to the IT  people and somehow get the information into the  hands of

  language teachers.

So If anyone has seen where this  feature  is explained, I need to know.
