How to enable British English spell checker from French version?

I'm trying to enable both French and British English spell checkers. If I set the whole interface in British English, I see these two dictionaries in Tools > Languages. However, if I put the interface in French (my preference), I only see the French language in the dictionary.

So the British English dictionary is definitely installed, but how can I add it to the Tools > Languages menu?

LibreOffice don't change languaje

Submitted by guijarrelson on October 27, 2016 - 3:52am

As LibreOffice v5.2.1 standard version, presents problems with the configuration of the GUI lang.

I configured to Spanish lang in the GUI option, LibreOffice restarts well showing that lang but, if you closes the app completely and reopen it, you will see the English lang.

It could be a problem in the lang setting save in the file?


Sehr lange Ladezeit

Auf meinem Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro S (SSD) dauert der Start der aktuellen Version 5.2.1 ca 30 Sekunden!!
Auf meinem simplen Dienstrechner nur wenige Sekunden (HD)!
Woran kann das liegen.
Habe schon einmal komplett deinstalliert und neu installiert.
Als ich eben die Version nachsehen wollte, stürzte das Programm ab. Es ist dann eben auch ein Fehlerbericht raus gegangen.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen

kann leider kein Englisch

Viewing Base files on an Android device

Submitted by Rudolph Pretorius on October 2, 2016 - 1:30pm

I'm new to Libre Office and I really don't know if im posting this in the right place !
If not, please bear with me and point me in the right direction.

I have a very old Database, written in dBase in the days of DOS. It was called PC File.
Keeping it going is becoming increasingly difficult. Now I've discovered Libre Office and Open Office and both of them open the database perfectly.
Is there a way that I can work on that database on my Windows 7 PC, then transfer the data to an Android device to be able to read it there ?

When we take this file and using jod converter and libre office we try and convert it to a pdf we get the following exception. We are using libre portable What does error code 283 mean, the folder has all the write permission needed. This is on a windows server.
