  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. I started a new project in APub Beta 249 today to test working with my normal novel-writing workflow: write in Scrivener, layout in APub. In this particular novel, I use both English and French. I started a new chapter. My Master Pages are set to default to English (Canada) as are the Assets I use for chapter and body text frames. I copied the text from Scrivener (also English-Canada) to APub. As expected the French text showed the red squiggly line to indicate a spelling error. I highlighted the offending text (and yes, I was very careful about exactly what I highlighted--no leading or trailing spaces or punctuation), and changed the language to French (France). This removed the red squigglies, but the first English word following was now showing the red squiggly. The language still showed English (Canada). When I changed the language to French (France) and back to English (Canada), the red squiggly under the English word disappeared. I did this several times--for all the French phrases. Oddly, the behaviour was inconsistent. Sometimes, after changing that first English word's language, the French phrase showed the red squiggly again, even though the language for the phrase was still set at French (France). Using the old addage "if it's quirky--roboot" I closed APub and opened it again, then the new project. To my surprise, all the French words showed squigglies, as well as only some of the first English words. When I checked the Character->Language setting, they were still appropriately set to French (France) and English (Canada).
  5. I have spell check set to correct automatically and use UK spelling rules. I do not see any corrections or markings in the document when a spelling mistake is made. I assume the UK one is built in and should not have anything in the Dictionaries folder, which is currently empty. The version is 1.7.0.206 (Beta)
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. 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:
  9. 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.
  10. Is there really a spell checker in AD? I have tested with misspelled words and the app doesn't seem to recognize them.
