  1. Hi, This issue was originally posted here in version 1.x of Affinity Publisher, but the issue persists with Affinity Publisher 2.0.4 on Windows 11 22H2, OS Build:22621.1555 ISSUE: Words ending in a colon in a header style, flag as misspelled, when they are, in fact, correctly spelled. TO REPRODUCE: Copy some HTML text from the web, preferably a title with a colon and a line break right after. I suspect it might have something to do with this source text. Pasted it into a text frame in Affinity Publisher. Mark the pasted text with a heading style. Ensure Text > Spelling > Check Spelling While Typing is on. OBSERVATIONS: in the Preflight panel, that there is a down arrow glyph (see image below)next to the colon. Turning on Text > Show Special Characters (Alt+P) does not seem to reveal a difference between this arrow (new line glyph) and the normal "new paragraph" (backwards P) glyph. Replacing it by deleting the paragraph symbol and typing a new one, does not fix it either. WORK-AROUND: adding another colon, then add a space, and then delete the second colon. e.g.: right after the "g" in "lighting", add a second colon, (Lighting::) and then space (Lighting: :), then delete the right-most colon. The end result is your headings will have an extra space after the colon and before the paragraph symbol, but since they are invisible, this should not be a critical document housekeeping issue. EXPECTED BEHAVIOR: Spell checker will not flag words in a heading style, that precede colons or hidden html symbols, as misspelled. Dave
