Color or Colour?

E-mail from Belfast: Setting up for UK doesn't change the American spelling of 'color' to the English spelling 'colour'. This looks bad in printed Estimates as it's obvious to the recipient in Northern Ireland that it isn't correct UK usage.

Goes to show once again that the U.S. and U.K. are two countries separated mainly by a common language. Actually, Morning Flight always adopted the British spelling whenever it generated its English language files outside the United States. Then we decided to include those files in the download to reduce wait times during the initial installation. And "Color" suddenly was no longer automatically changed to "Colour."

If your version of Morning Flight displays the American spelling when it shouldn't, try first to change your country to a non-English speaking country in My World, then change it back again. If that doesn't correct it, upgrade to the current version (2007.1). That will force the conversion.

Incidentally, if you would like to customize the English version even further, you can do that as well. First, change the language for your country from English to My Language, then use the built-in Translator (File > Translate . . . > Morning Flight) to rewrite any wording in the program.
