When checking preflight on a Publisher document, I get lot of notes stating "missing language dictionary (en-EE)", which means Estonian dictionary. I do not want to check neither spelling nor hyphenation, I disabled these functions, but Publisher still asks for the corresponding dictionary. I have Estonian keyboard layout activated, is this the reason for dictionary demands? I need to use letter Õ, which is rare in other languages, so I can't use any other keyboard.  I could not install Estonian dictionary, I need to download .dic and .aff files, but I get html and txt files instead. I do not really need this dictionary, I just want to preflight documents without these notes. Is there any solution for this issue?

If you do not disable it in the Preflight setting, the warnings are still there. The missing language should be et-EE not en-EE. Please reread the FAQ how to get the correct files and where and what to copy. To shorten this I attached the Estonian dictionary.

The FAQ describes the proper process for downloading the dictionary files, so that you do not get html files. (They are text format, but should not end in .txt. The FAQ also covers that.)

If you do not want to worry abut spellchecking, then in your Text Styles (or in the Character panel) set the Language, Spelling field to None.

Or edit your Preflight profile and disable the spellchecking rule.

I did exactly as recommended, but the dictionary files still downloaded with .txt extensions. I tried both versions (deleted .txt extensions), but the language did not appear in the System Preferences/Keyboard/Text list. What's wrong? How should I proceed?
