[Feature Request] Change spelling / spell check dictionary #129
It's unlikely that we'll add this because the automatic detection works really well for most people once the dictionaries are downloaded - here's a bit more info: https://foundry376.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001882532-Setting-the-spell-check-language

@bengotow I think this should be reconsidered (i.e. remove the won't fix label).
I know for sure that language detection algorithms tend to fail for languages with a very similar vocabulary, but with different spellings (en-GB, en-US, en-AU and many more variations). With a short e-mail, the language detection algorithm will simply not have enough context to properly detect the language.
Personally, I would make this a minor issue, to be considered for a future release.
