Support Hyphenation Slovak and Czech

Recommended Posts

Hi Bruno75,

Welcome to the forums :)

Although we don't include support for these dictionaries as standard you can import your own into Affinity Publisher, please see the following FAQ for instructions on how to do this - 

I hope this helps!

The Czech Hunspell dictionaries (and publicly-available Hunspell dictionaries for many other languages) are licensed under GPL. https://github.com/LibreOffice/dictionaries/blob/master/cs_CZ/README_en.txt

As a software vendor, you cannot distribute GPL code together with proprietary apps. I imagine licensing is the reason why Affinity does not bundle many spelling and hyphenation dictionaries. Each of them has different licensing terms and it’s quite difficult to harmonize them.
