Affinity Publisher Vers 2. How to import User Dictonary from Vers 1?


Recommended Posts

In the newly installed version 2 of Affinity Publisher, the words learned in the User Dictionary of version 1 are not imported.

After the installation of version 2 I have also copied the User Dictionary file ( dictionary.propcol) of version 1 into the installation of version 2 (...<User>\.affinity\Common\2.0\user\dictionary.propcol).

Unfortunately the ready "learned" words are not recognized in the preflight and displayed as incorrect.

How can I transfer the laboriously learned words into the dictionary of version 2?

Thank you

I haven't tried that, but I would have expected it to work. Are you sure the Spelling Language for the text is set correctly?

It looks like I have lost my 'updated' dictionary.propcol file. There seems to be only one left with all the words I 'learned' missing....

Wondering now if there is a quick way to relearn these words. I have an already corrected book with 150 pages and about 100 words that I know are spelled correctly, that are now showing as incorrect in Preflight.

Currently it looks like I have to right click on all the words to pick them up with 'Learn Spelling'.
And that takes time...

Are you sure you copied the right file from V1? You never gave the path to the one you copied from.
