Defines the default languages and some other locale settings for documents.
Select the language used for the user interface, for example menus, dialogue boxes, help files. You must have installed at least one additional language pack or a multi-language version of LibreOffice.
The "Default" entry selects the language of the user interface for the operating system. If this language is not available in the LibreOffice installation, the language of the LibreOffice installation is the default language.
Specifies the locale setting of the country setting. This influences settings for numbering, currency and units of measure.
The "Default" entry selects the locale which name is reported by the operating system.
A change in this field is immediately applicable. However, some formats that were formatted by default change only if the document is newly loaded.
Specifies to use the decimal separator key that is set in your system when you press the respective key on the number pad.
If this check box is marked, the character shown after "Same as locale setting" is inserted when you press the key on the number pad. If this check box is not marked, the character that your keyboard driver software provides is inserted.
Specifies the default currency that is used for the currency format and the currency fields. If you change the locale setting, the default currency changes automatically.
The default entry applies to the currency format that is assigned to the selected locale setting.
A change in Default currency field will be transmitted to all open documents and will lead to corresponding changes in the dialogue boxes and icons that control the currency format in these documents.
Specifies the date acceptance patterns for the current locale. Calc spreadsheet and Writer table cell input needs to match locale dependent date acceptance patterns before it is recognised as a valid date. Default locale dependent date acceptance patterns are generated during build time, but it is possible to add more or modify them in this edit box.
Additionally to the date acceptance patterns defined here, every locale accepts input in an ISO 8601 Y-M-D pattern, and since LibreOffice 3.5 that also leads to the YYYY-MM-DD format being applied.
Syntax: Y means year, M means month, and D means day, regardless of localisation.
Specifies the languages for spelling, thesaurus and hyphenation.
Specifies the language used for the spelling check function in western alphabets.
Specifies the language used for the spelling check function in Asian alphabets.
Specifies the language for the complex text layout spelling check.
Specifies that the settings for default languages are valid only for the current document.
Activates Asian languages support. You can now modify the corresponding Asian language settings in LibreOffice.
If you want to write in Chinese, Japanese or Korean, you can activate the support for these languages in the user interface.
Activates complex text layout support. You can now modify the settings corresponding to complex text layout in LibreOffice.
Indicates whether changes to the system input language/keyboard will be ignored. If ignored, when new text is typed that text will follow the language of the document or current paragraph, not the current system language.
