Adobe Pro Language Preferences
How do I change from US English to British English?

 12:36 pm on Feb 4, 2010 (gmt 0)

I do a lot of editing work using Adobe Acrobat Pro. One thing I find annoying is that review notes and comments are at the mercy of a US English dictionary.

How do I change settings so that it uses British English as default? 'Help' offers nothing, and I've had no luck via the Adobe Support website.

I'm assuming that you've been into your regional & language options in your OS and made sure everything is screaming UK or British in there.

I'm on Mac OS and it's set to British English. As I type this I'm looking at a Union Jack in the top right of the menu bar that confirms this.
