Would it be possible to install language packs using either Snap or Flatpak version of LibreOffice? Thank you!

I'm not sure what you mean about the additional language pack, but it is possible for you to install additional dictionaries and change the default language of the documents. I just haven't tried to change the default display language.

About the fonts, in the flatpak version that I'm using couldn't access the fonts on my system, I had to manually copy the .TTF files that I wanted to the font folder of the application.

System font path: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ Flatpak font path: /var/lib/flatpak/app/org.libreoffice.LibreOffice/current/active/files/libreoffice/share/fonts/truetype

I haven't tried to use the snap version of the application so I don't know if it works the same way.

Hope it helps.

That's true in case of MS Windows where are no language packs - just help packs. But Snap and Flatpak are meant for GNU/Linux where are language packs. Please look these links, scroll down and you will see language packs. But to be honest then I would like to install help packs as well in case of Snap, Flatpak.

I am wondering this as well. I don't see where I can point the snap to also include the system font folder.
