Yes when I go to extras preferences language English (United Kingdom) with a green tick to the left is shown as the default language.
The documents I am opening are from Open Office (ods files) all previously created, edited and spellchecked as English (UK), which is the default for OO on my computer.
Yet When I open it in TM it tells me the document language is English (United States).
Does this mean I have to Format - Character - then scroll right down to English (United Kingdom) for EVERY document imported from Open Office? Do I have to do Edit - Select All first?
Incidentally I saved it using Textmaker - it opened in Open Office as language English (UK).
However when I saved it again and reopened it in Textmaker, the same problem occured.
EVEN if I save it in Textmaker and then reopen it, I have to do Format - Character - select United Kingdom as it has reset itself to United States.
Can you mail such an OpenOffice-created file to forum(at)softmaker.de referencing this thread?
On another subject, every time TM opens I get an alert from my firewall that it has a screenlogger trying to get screen content. Why is this?
I don't have the faintest idea what your firewall is trying to tell you here. Not that I would place any trust in those "personal firewalls"...
