  1. From today the spell checker recognizes only the English language. The last time I used it in my language (Italian) it worked perfectly and that was 2 days ago. I tried to change the main language in the PREFERENCES section and reset it to Italian, but everything was in vain and the problem remains. Does anyone have a solution on this?
  2. AFPUB 1.8.4.648 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?
  3. Is there really a spell checker in AD? I have tested with misspelled words and the app doesn't seem to recognize them.
  4. If I want to change the spell check language I have to select each text frame individually because when they are in groups and I select the whole document and change the language in the character panel, it doesn't change it for the text fields in groups. This is pretty cumbersome and and I think could be done better. Maybe have the character panel language dropdown effect also text fields in groups or maybe have a way of changing the language globally.
  5. Hi Serif'er It will be important to have spell-check in Swiss German, we even have a different typo to the Germans. It would be nice, to able to use "Duden" or "Hunspell" or "Pons" or "Open Thesaurus" or any other kind of spell-checking method. Cheers for the constant improvement! Thomas
  6. I'm not quite sure how to explain this. I went under Text/Spelling to Check Spelling. The first questionable word was highlighted, but there was nowhere to do anything about it. I went under Text/Spelling again and selected Show Check Options. Shouldn't these be together, for example when I select check spelling, the show options box just opens? Also, there was no indication that spell check was completed. It just kept choosing the last word it questioned, which happened to be a last name, every time I clicked ignore. I've been doing this type of document layout for more than 30 years, since PageMaker 2.0, and this just seems a little unintuitive to me. Thanks.
  7. I have a document that uses tables, during translation it was very difficult for the translation service to recreate the table so I am now recreating them and pasting the translated text into a table image. All the text is red (as it is in Welsh). I did a quick browse of the forum and saw that you would need to add the word considered as miss-spelled to the dictionary. Thats' hundreds of words. Is there a way to turn of spell checking please? Please don't tell me this can't be done in a graphics program where any number of words are created or intentionally miss-spelled?
  8. If I write 10 microns (micro metres) using um where the "u" is the greek "mu" character, then I get a spelling correction red wiggly underline. If I copy this text into powerpoint, then no underline, as the dictionary has learned the "word" but Affinity Designer does not learn it and it being really annoying.
  9. If a text object has a spelling error and another object is placed atop of it such that the original text element can no longer be seen, the squiggly underlines from the spelling errors ignore the z-index layering and always bubble up to the top. A screenshot:
  10. It would be nice (if it doesn't already exist and I've just missed it) to be able to toggle on & off the spell check feature. The squiggly red line can be really distracting when I'm trying to look at the design, especially when the word is purposely missing letters.
