Ability to preselec dictionaries and languages supported and available to clients

With Notes Client v12 and higher the new Install option Dictionary is available.

As we all highly wellcome for the spellcheck option lots of languages are available.

In case you want to mark the text within a document to be checked with a special language you can show the language toolbar, mark the whole text or only a part of it and select the language you'd like to use with the spellchecker to check.

Unfortunately the language toolbar shows ALL available languages in an alphabetical list by default. Once you have found and marked the text, you'd like to use for spellchecking, it will be moved to the top of the list, separated by a barline.

But you need to scroll the list for every new language.

I was wondering if it is possible to "predifine" the languages to be primarily used within our company and hide all the others behind a [more...] button.

Let's asume you're located in Germany and using German and English for the most of your communication. Maybe some French as well.

Wouldn't it be nice, from an admin point of view, to have a notes.ini or desktop setting to predefine these primarily used languages in your company?

f.e. Spellcheck_Default_Languages=DE_de, EN_us, tbc...

If set, bring these Langs to the top of the list (like they have been used before) and hide all the others.

In case a User now needs f.e. Japanese as well, the user should be able to select Japanese from the list (behind the [more...] button). This should also add JP to the notes.ini Setting or create a Spellcheck_custom_Languages=JP entry.

Finally spellchecker and language selection toolbar should show and/or check text based on this list.
