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.

     I have had a document that contained English, German, and Spanish
in one paragraph. By creating a character style for each language, I was
able to correctly spell check all three languages. Three paragraphs in
three different languages requires one paragraph style for each

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 don't mean to sound harsh at all, but if you want LO or OOo to
more than the basics you need to learn how to use styles. Begin with the
Writer chapter in the Getting Started with LO and then graduate to the
Writer Guide.

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. sells printed copies of the Writer Guide. The direct link:
