High-contrast icons in LibreOffice
A short time ago I augmented the details on disabling the high-contrast icons (what the article refers to as "Windows 95" or "Windows 98" style icons), since for me, it wasn't enough to just disable the automatic high-constrast detection.
I found this out courtesy of the following entries in the LibreOffice Bugzilla; while I am sure anyone else here could find them just as easily, I wanted to note them here for the information of other contributors:
- Bug 67859 - High contrast mode enabled by auto-detection is awkward to disable
- Bug 67860 - Auto detection of high contrast mode is easy to trigger
Finnish spell checking section
I added a section but am not sure if it is the right place for it. What do you think?

- If it's only spell checking you could move it as a subsection of LibreOffice#Spell checking and just rename it "Finnish". If it's more than just spell checking, you may leave it there but rename it to LibreOffice#Finnish aids or similar. -- Kynikos (talk) 01:34, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
This might be a bug and should then probably be filed somewhere else, but is related to the section on troubleshooting. My issue was this: Most, but not all, text in the menus and in the user interface was in an unreadable font - in English but with wrong symbols. Changing the system fonts as recommended in various places did not help. It turned out I had the language pack libreoffice-am (Amharic) installed by mistake. Removing this gave me back the intelligible menus. Version: 126.96.36.199
language aids improvement
since mythes, hyphen and hunspell package are based on not much up-to-date language database (at least some of them e.g. Italian ones) I suggest to use LO extension which provides the same features but up-to-date e.g. for Italian language the plio.org association provides its own extension (http://extensions.libreoffice.org/extension-center/italian-dictionary-thesaurus-hyphenation-patterns) for this reason (IMHO) we should at least quote this possibility, this way of enabling language aids. --nTia89 (talk) 07:55, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
