Can anyone tell me the logic in this?
If I download the English UK version, if I select Custom install, then
ALL the language packs are disabled apart from English, yet all the

dictionaries there are and disable them one by one (unless anyone can
tell me a better way!).
Surely logic says that if all the language packs are disabled by default
other than the one for the relevant download, then all the dictionaries
should be as well?

There is no need to enable or disable anything. You can write (and spell check) English text with Russian figures in a Chinese GUI. GUI language, numeric default locale and default text language are completely independent from each other. Each snippet of text, each table cell, field, input box and what else can be used in its own language context.

Andreas, I think what Gordon was trying to find out runs just opposite to what you elaborate on. He seems to not understand why downloading ALL Dictionaries cannot be disabled at install time (as he apparently has no use for any) when he choses a specific language (in his case the English UK) version of the suite.
