The title says it all. I when I create a document from the start menu or create new document via Libre office the dictionary works fine (I set up a template and set it to default), but when I create a new document by right clicking in a window and selecting new open document etc the template is not used and I have to set the language every time. Any help is appreciated.

OS: Windows 7 LibreOffice: Version

I tried what that guide said but it does not work. I go to Tools > Options > Language settings > Languages and then select the default language from the list of available dictionaries but this does not change the language for anything at all. I have to go to Tools > Language > For all Text and select the language there or it has no effect. and again when I open a new document i have to do it again.
