In the same area, it's rather strange that the whole list of languages is available in the
drop-down lists that are easily accessible to users (in the Font properties tab for example)
whereas only installed dics are listed in Tools>Options>Language and Settings>Writing

The long list is either confusing (are all these languages installed?) or not convenient (I've
to move along the whole list to find the correct language). It would be more logical to have
the opposite:
- short list (only installed dics) in the "common" settings
- long list (with the check mark for installed languages) in the advanced options (Tools>Options>...)

In the forum, very often, users don't make the difference at first between a language with
a check mark (installed) and without in the list.

Just my 2 ct, sorry to be OT here. Can make a bug report if needed.
