When I create a new field the default language is always German. How can I set it that it is always English?
Was the file created on a system where the default system language is/was German?
I'm pretty sure that's not a modifiable setting and it's stored when the file is created.
The only thing I can think of that's close is the File > File Options > Spelling tab settings, but I thought that only affected field entry, not language.
Not sure what you mean exactly. The default language in the storage dialog you illustrate is a dropdown list which you can alter. As far as I can tell it is a field by field setting—you can have one field set to German, another to English, etc, although I don't know what effect that has.
He's stating that every new field he creates is defaulted to German, not to English as he would like. He's able to change it but would prefer the default to be English.
Fair enough, but i know of no way to change that. Do you?
Nope, as I noted above I believe it's stored in the backend file schema when the file is created, with no way to change it.
Thank you every body that helps. Hope I can fix it by cloneing it. Could that work?
Cloning the file would also clone any schema settings from the original file, so I would assume that would NOT work.
Thanks for that point. So there is no solution, except changing it all the time.
Or starting with a new file and importing everything from the old file.
