Since I started using OpenOffice Portable a few versions ago, I have noticed that the program does not remember the default language for new documents. I have installed the Canadian English dictionary using the wizard just fine, but after that I go to Tools > Options > Language Settings > Languages. I set the default language for documents to "Canadian English", everything works fine for that session. Next time I start a new document, the default is set back to US English.
I have local installations of OpenOffice on a few different machines, and in each instance, it remembers this setting. Each new document has the "correct" language.
Of course, this is certainly not the most important issue that someone will face, but if anyone has a suggestion, I would appreciate not having to change this setting every time I start a new document.
