Stationery: Set Default Language When Guest Language Is Not Present on Guest Card

We have added a DEFAULT tag in Settings > Hotel & Staff > Languages, which when active, will set the tagged language as the default stationery language when the guest language is not present on the guest card.

To make another language the default language, hover to the right of the language, and a blue MAKE DEFAULT button will appear for selection.

If no language is marked DEFAULT, then the first language in the Languages list will become the default stationery language.

The default language will appear on the folio, confirmation emails, and other stationery.
