Spell checking language

Postby hardyb » Mon Feb 03, 2014 4:52 pm

Can any one advise me how to easily change from american English dictionary to UK English dictionary? It does not seem clear to be how to do this.

I just downloaded Lyx to do some support, so i might be mistaken:

Tools (Werkzeuge) -> Options/Preferences (Optionen) -> language settings (Spracheinstellungen).
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

I have been looking in there.

Under language the UI language and default language are both English(UK)

Under spell checker there appears to be an option add personal dictioonary but I cannot see how to just switch from english us to uk

Sorry

OK thanks for the input. Turns out I should have been doing it under document settings. Sorry don't know why I missed this in the manual.
