How do you set the default spell checker language for new documents?

Does anybody know how you set the default spell checker language for new documents? I found that you can set it per-document in the document settings, but I can’t find a way of setting the default for new documents I create in LucidCharts.

Hi @yngndrw 

To change the spell checker language for a specific document, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open the document for which you want to change the spell checker language.
  2. Go to the "Edit" menu at the top of the document editor (see screenshot below).
  3. Select "Change spell check Language" and choose the desired language from the list of available languages.

This method allows you to set the spell checker language on a per-document basis, but you'll need to repeat the process for each new document you create.

I hope this helps.

Hello Ria,

Thank you for you response. I’m aware that it can be set on a per-document basis, but I was really hoping that it could be set on a per-account basis - It seems like a bit of a gap in the functionality if they don’t support this as a user’s language is not likely to change between documents in the majority of cases.
