I am running LibreOffice (Version on MacOs X and would like to change the spellcheck language for all slides. How can I set this for the whole document.

The common advice that I found online suggests to go to Tools->Options->language settings. This dialog does not seem to exist though ...

Seems like it is a bug see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/980467. I think the only workaround is to mark the text on the slides individually and select "format" -> character and there select the language you want.

Hope this is fixed soon.

It's a while ago, but I think that is what I ended up doing. –  Lucas Mar 20 '13 at 13:10
