AFPUB 220.127.116.118 OS X 10.15.3 Originally posted August 2019. As this is publishing software, it would be extremely helpful to have grammar check built in. Without this feature, one would have to offload the text somehow, check it in some other piece of software, and then manually make the corrections. I'm not sure whether the grammar checking should be "on demand" and/or "as you type." Either way, it's going to be very handy to have built into Affinity Publisher. On the Mac, when you use the Shift-Command-Colon keys it brings up the "Spelling and Grammar" window. The grammar is built into the operating system of the Mac in the user's chosen language. I noted that this is the same window that I see in AFPUB (more or less). See the two screen captures below. I'd suggest that AFPUB be made aware of that for the Mac and be able to invoke the Grammar Check using the check box provided on the Mac Spelling and Grammar window. That means you would not have to create a grammar checker inside AFPUB, just use the operating system's built-in capability. Perhaps there might be something similar in Windows?
Please see the referenced issue regarding the built-in spelling and grammar feature that the Mac uses - it's the same, or similar, to what AfPUB is using currently, but without the grammar. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/114216-feature-request-grammar/&tab=comments#comment-621349 Thanks for considering using this feature.
