Can anyone tell me the logic in this?
If I download the English UK version, if I select Custom install, then

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

And for those of us who don't speak 2, 3 or 10 different languages, and only need *one*?

Gordon: it is a little easier to first disable the entire Dictionary category (rather than doing each language individually), then expand it and select only the desired language.

And I agree with your complaint, but there is something else that bugs me even more...

and two minutes later I posted the exact same question as the OP...
