Where do I find the proper dictionaries to be use with A.D. for spellchecking?

So far I know the dictionaries are to be added to [on WIN] "ProgramData\Affinity\Common\1.0\Dictionaries

What I don't know nor can't seem to find is where the Affinity spellchecking dictionary are located at. !?

Could one just use dictionaries from the Mozilla's Firefox or LibreOffice repositories without issues?

 

Thanks

The LibreOffice dictionaries work. (Anything for Hunspell should, but some seen to be broken).

More info for Publisher here, but it applies to Designer, too:

Assuming they're .xpi files, they're zipped Hunspell dictionaries - they need to be renamed and unpacked before putting them in the correct folder structure.
