spelling does not work
orthography/spelling seems not to work in kmail editor version 5.33. Whenever I select "German", it turns to "Abkhazian", a language, I never heard of. See attached pic.
This occurs for me too:
- Under Settings->Configure KMail->Identities
- edit an identitiy
- go to "Advanced" tab
- The "Autocorrection lanuage" field shows "Abkhazian".
- Change to "English"
- Click "OK"
Returning back to the same setting, the field has reverted to "Abkhazian".
KMail 5.43.3 from Fedora 25 packages.
I confirm that it's buggy.
I will investigate it.
I see the same behavior:
I suspect it is selecting Abkhazian because it is the first in the list. I find it strange that languages appear for which I don't have any dictionaries installed.
The setting appears to stick now.
I installed langpacks-en
I then went to System Settings -> Region -> Language and selected English as my preferred language.
I then went to System Settings -> Region -> Spell Check and selected American English as my standard language.
The setting in KMail's identity configuration now appears to stick.
However, automatic spell check is still not happening.
