I use Powerpoint 2010 on Windows 7. My keyboard layout is German, but I write my presentations in English.
Now I created a presentation with Default Language set to English, and I want it to use English for proofing. When I create a new slide/textbox/... the language is indeed English. However as soon as I start typing, the language changes to German. This happens because my system-wide keyboard layout is set to German. If keyboard layout is changed to English, everything is alright.
Now I want to stop Powerpoint from changing its proofing language to match my keyboard language. I tried changing the
LangTuneUp key to Off or Prohibited in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\LanguageResourcesas indicated here, but it didn't help. Any other ideas?
P.S. Oh how I hate it when application-developers try to be clever.
