it would be nice if one could set the default language, and change the display language.

currently the language is derived somehow from the operating system and changing it is not very obvious.

    A function for setting the language is rather a requirement. After having installed my v1.4 OpenReport is mixing languages intoeach other when creating reports, i.e. english and dutch. I had formerly v1.3 installed with default language english. I had created different projects in english. Now I am opening these project with v1.4 and get a mix of languages, i.e. english and dutch. My OS locale and regional settings are configured with dutch and netherlands. So now I am seeing english and dutch in my reports.
    I think this feature is a requrement and therefore should be promoted to a higher priority and impact.

    Hello,

    You can set the language by creating a script containing "java -Duser.language=en -Duser.country=US -Xms128m -Xmx768m -jar openproj.jar" in the same directory as OpenProj and replacing "en" and "US" by the language and country you want. See here: http://java.sun.com/javase/technologies/core/basic/intl/faq.jsp#set-default-locale
