Wrong standards for Swedish

Postby jan-olof » Fri Oct 23, 2015 10:16 pm

Dialog language is right but document language is wrong (en-GB)
Mesurement is USA instead of Metric.
Wrong quotation mark, see image: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/108 ... tation.png

Using Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon edition

The same errors appear in the third beta too.

You can change the quotation marks in TextMaker in Tools=>Options=>Language. SoftMaker Office uses the measurements set in your system. Please make sure to use the metric system in your Linux.

Yes, of course I can change some settings but they should be correct from the start. The quotation marks cannot be changed as far as I can see (only to English, German or French). They are correct in LibreOffice.

The settings have to be set for each user and separately in both TextMaker, PlanMaker and Presentations. Is there any place where they can be set for all three applications and for all users?

No, you have to setup each program individually.

The support of Swedish smart quotes is on the agenda for the future but unfortunately not yet implemented.

This appears not to be the case, SMO uses US values, for various settings set differently in my system
eg. I have set the parameters below, but SMO still uses US values for them.
LC_PAPER=nl_NL.UTF-8
LC_MEASUREMENT=nl_NL.UTF-8
LC_TIME=nl_NL.UTF-8

It would be nice if SMO would use the environment parameters to set the defaults.
