    Customize (shorten) list of languages in Character palette?

    PlainMartin

      I often have to change the language for short text sections in a paragraph. I work with five languages, but of course, the language drop-down menu in InDesign’s Character palette shows all languages. I would like to reduce this menu to just the languages I need on a daily basis (e.g. English: USA, German and French).

       

      I thought that “Edit” > “Menus” might help, but unless I missed something, it won’t.

       

      So would I really have to remove all (Hunspell) dictionaries for the languages I don’t need? In InDesign CC on OS X, this is a 156 MB “bundle” (AdobeHunspellPlugin.bundle). Going in there, physically removing all language folders and editing the plist file as described in http://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/kb/add_cs_dictionaries.html#id_69116 seems a bit… brutal. Is there a more flexible approach?
