When changing the keyboard layout in Windows 7 hitting Alt+Shift, LibreOffice Writer also changes the language of the text that I enter. No matter what language is set-up for the document, style, or paragraph, it switches to the language that matches the keyboard layout. I haven't found an option to switch this feature off. Do you know where I can find it? And is there any at all?

There's a bug report together with a discussion about this issue, dating from 2009. Since it's confirmed but still open, i fear that there's still no way to disable this behaviour. – tohuwawohu Apr 28 '12 at 7:08
Thanks for the link. Looks like the developers are rather ignorant of this problem. I assume the solution is to switch to MS Office. – Wolfgang Apr 28 '12 at 13:05
