I am using UK English dictionary, but it keeps on changing back to US English.

How do i save it to UK English.

I have changed the settings from Tools>options>language settings but it keeps on changing back to US English

The whole document needs to be set to the language in which you want to spellcheck.

Do select all (Ctrl+A) and then go to Format>Character and change the language.

There should be no need to double post in the forums:

Beware, this way, it's a direct formatting.
Check the properties of the Default paragraph style (Language is in the Font tab). Display the Stylist (F11) and in the paragraphs styles tab (first by default), right click on the Default entry and Modify.

Don't forget to do this also in your template to get this setting for all your new documents (or create a custom template and set it as the default one, some threads about it in this forum).
