More than one language for spell checking

Recommended Posts

I usually need to have French and English text in documents and the new preflight is great, except that if the program is set to English, every French word shows as misspelled. Is there any way to be able to select more than one language? It seems worth doing as many designers work across languages. I am Mac OS and it allows me to check off several languages for the spell check but I do not know how hard it might be to have the same function in Publisher.

You specify the language for spell-checking in one of several places:

  1. By default, the spelling language will be the UI language specified in the Preferences.
  2. But you can specify it for a word, phrase, or text frame using the Character studio panel, which has a Language section.
  3. Or you can specify it in a Character or Paragraph text style, which also have a language section.

I will try some of that, it would be easier to just tell it to use two dictionaries instead of one, but your solutions would be a good work around for that. Thanks!

Affinity use Hunspell dictionaries, and this is text files. So I would try to combine two dictionaries (two languages) into one using a text editor.

That is an idea, I would have no idea how to do that and am hesitant to do anything like that  and end up with no working dictionary.  Thank you for that information!
