How do I change the default language? I'm using Calc and it's stuck in Italian (I think I set Italian as the language when I was writing an essay a while ago) and the currency is stuck in Euro. Even if I go in Format>Cells>Numbers or Font and change the language, it will switch back instantly. I even downloaded the new version of LibreOffice and I'm still having the same problem. Every time I click on a cell and press the currency button it goes to Euro. Help :(

Have you tried looking in Tools |Options | Language Settings | Language ? (If you use a Mac that is probably LibreOffice | Preferences | Language Settings | Language)

I'm a fool and I missed the + sign on Languages. Thank you!

that's just the placebo, the moment you select a paragraph, and select the default language it reverts to the UI or the one you installed
