Having trouble changing Powerpoint 2007 default language to English UK on XP machine. It keeps spell checking in English US and I cannot get UK to stick. Excel and Word are both OK, I just can't change PPT. What I've tried so far
1\ Checked I have admin rights (This is work pc) and I do. (Right click on 'Start'>'Open all users' opens OK, it wouldn't if I didn't have admin rights, also checked properties of my user and I am a member of administrators group)
2\ Start>All Programs>MS Office>MS Office Tools>MS Office 2007 Language Settings>Primary editing language is set as English UK. Enabled editing language has UK and US. I can remove US and OK it, but it just re-appears again next time I open this back up. It won't stay removed although there is no error message.
3\ Control panel>Regional & Language Options>Languages tab>Text service & input language details - everything is set as English UK with no sign of English US
4\ In Powerpoint - Office Button>Powerpoint Options>Proofing>Auto Correct - shows as English US, but no option there to change language to UK
5\ In Powerpoint - Office Button>Powerpoint Options>Custom Dictionaries - Only English UK visible in dictionary language and dictionary list, no sign of US
6\ In Word - Review tab>Set Language - UK as default but cannot remove US, both are ticked for spelling but Word is using UK. I've also unchecked 'Detect language automatically'
Any other suggestions folks, I've run out of ideas and Google is not being my friend so far
But curiously, mine remains in US and the word I've just checked is minimise. It obviously wants to spell it with a z and tells me my version is not in the dictionary. I have been and added it to my custom dictionary but it still doesn't accept it. PPT doesn't even appear to be listening to my custom dictionary.
