changing language of new files


I've looked all over and changed language settings, but I can't seem to change the German setting in New Files to English so I can print labels. Anyone know how? Thanks...

Maybe if you shed some light on what application
or window manager or even distro you're talking about?


Cheers,

Sorry...I'm working with Open Office 1.1.2 in Linux Knoppix 3.4. Is that what you need? Thanks so much for helping a total novice who's trying to break free of Microsoft!

Rrrrright :)

In a document in swriter the language is tied to
"character" in the documents right-click pop-up
menu. Highlight any text, select character from the
pop-up and change the language to English. If
that's not being offered you may have to download
the English version of Knoppix instead (if this is
a German knoppix, that is ... if it's not that maybe
something Mr Knopper overlooked in the nationalised
customisations).


Cheers,
Tink

Tink,

Thanks for your prompt response. You're great! I do have the English version, and have changed all the language settings I can find. The character selection was in English already. It seems that most of the top-bar options in Open Office are in English except for a few odd ones, including all of the File/New selection options. Strange...
