If you use some default template for a component, you've got to open the template for editing (File>Templates>Edit...) and apply the language setting together with option "current document only". This setting affects the "font language" in all text formatting dialogs having a "Font" tab.

I think right now the problem could be the use of many languages in a single document and getting the language option menu in the "Spelling and Grammar" icon/option to have more space for more language listings - is what is needed. I added German to my dictionaries and it did not show up in that specific menu list. Setting the default language for a specific paragraph, etc., did show German though.

Yes, having styles and templates set up for making a new document have a specific default language may be a good idea, but the basic user would not know how to do this. I have been using LO since 3.3.0 and have not got into creating "styles" or changed my default document, or even created any new templates.

I thing I might have to buy a printed copy of the Writer book, if I was to start dealing with all the other things that Writer can do that I have not been doing so far. I would rather read a printer book than read it on my desktop or laptop. I do not have a tablet.
