Simplify the settings dialogue for LibreOffice 6.2

Release Details

  • LibreOffice 6.2.3 for Windows, MacOS and Linux does not allow the extension script to restore the last displayed option for the dialogue; therefore the dialogue always defaults to the first available option.
  • By disabling the festival option if the festival program is not installed, the dialogue defaults to External Program, the most commonly used option on Windows and MacOS.
  • Windows and MacOS commonly can use multilingual system voices, therefore you do not need Festival unless you require a voice for a region that are not available in the system voices catalogue
  • The scripts for setting up the dialogue use with notation to make the code more readable.
  • The main dialog uses a compatible group tag for the option radio button and uses a tab order that groups the radio buttons together.
