Hi, me again, how to solve a missing dictionary?

I'm using the language español in the preferences, but every time I open affinity publisher, changes the language for english and I have to change the language for español in the preferences, again.

Then the preflight said: missing language dictionary for language (en-CR)

 

How to solve this?

The Preference you showed is only for AutoCorrect. And it just provides the list of automatic corrections to be used if the spelling language is Spanish.

The language for Spelling is taken from the Character studio panel, or from the Text Style used for the text. And the default for that language, for a new document with the default Text Styles, is taken from Preferences, General, where you can specify the User Interface language at the bottom of the list.

Ok but, when I change the language to español in general, changes the language of the entire app, not only the language I use for writing. And I don't want to use spanish as the default language for the app, only use a spanish dictionary in order of not to have the annoying issue with the preflight

That's a good start, and the fact that you can specify Spanish there means the dictionaries are installed. However, did you have it specified that way when you created the text?

If you go to one of the areas that showed the wrong language in PreFlight, and put the cursor in that text, does the Character panel still show Spanish? If not, you'll need to select all the text and assign Spanish to it.

Ideally you would define the spelling and hyphenation languages in a Text Style and assign that style to your text. If you want the complete document in Spanish, you could change the definition of the Base Text Style, and other Text Styles would inherit from it.

You'll need to select all the text that isn't Spanish and use the Character panel to change it to Spanish. You can't just do it by having the cursor in the text frame.

Help!

Publisher's Preflight is insisting that I need a "missing dictionary for language (en-NZ)"... which seems entirely reasonable as I live in New Zealand.

But "English (New Zealand)" or "en-NZ" is not an option in the preferences list. Where do I find this dictionary? And how do I install it to keep Publisher happy and stop giving me all these "missing dictionary" errors???
