Using different locale in Preview

Forums > SwiftUI

Hi everyone, i´m currently at Day 30 of 100 Days of SwiftUI and really enjoying it.

Have the follwing problem: My locale is set to german, but i wanted to use "en-US" in some apps instead to avoid word replacement with german words. This works great in the simulator by adding the following modifier to the view(in this case a list):

.typesettingLanguage(.init(identifier: "en-US"))

In order to have that in the preview, Apple suggests to use the following modifer be added to the preview:

.environment(\.locale, .init(identifier: "en"))

This produces the following behaviour in the preview: Sometimes the words are processed using "en-US", sometimes my default locale is used again.

I know it´s a small issue, but it´s quite anoying. Is this a bug with the preview or am i missing something?

Thank You all for your help.

Greetings Markus
