Notes has a great feature, allowing part of a text to be tagged with a different language.
Many of my customers (including myself) write e.g. mails switching languages (per email, or even inside 1 email).
Especially now in Notes 8, we have instant spell checking, these are the steps the user has to use to switch language:
- select the text
- open the text properties
- select the correct language (out of a very long list)
- close the text properties
Note that the Language selector in the Statusbar does no longer exist in 8 standard, but even this 'popup' language bar is a hassle, because of the long list of choices.
Would it not be great to have a formula command to switch on the fly:
This way I can create a (toolbar) button for a user to switch instantaneously.
PS it would be nice to be able to set this language tag for a NotesRichText in LotusScript too.

I vote for the toolbar button, not the formula command.
