Easier Spell Checker Language Select

    General discussion

  • Hi there,
    I'm loving Windows Live Writer. It's simple and easy to use.

    What I'm missing is a way to change the spellchecker language in a simple and easy way.
    I'm writing in german and english so I always go the options dialog and change the language for currently opened post.

    Assigning language to a blog
    It would be great if there would be an option assigned to the blog which says what's the language of the blog. So when writing in "Blog-De" the spellchecker would automatically work with german and using "Blog-En" the english checker would run.

    Assigning language to a blog post
    I'm writing in one blog with two languages - ok - no discussion if writing in two languages in one blog is really useful.
    But in my case it would really help if I could assign a language to a blog post.

    How I'm using Live Writer
    I use WLW as a note taking application for possible blog posts - some are just ideas, others are getting finished over time while collecting all information needed. So I have a lot of drafts in there and continue writing over time. So I often have to switch between the languages.
