1.7.0.58 Bug -- Spell Check Language on Mac - not fixed in 128


Recommended Posts

Still have the issue where I cannot see the two languages I have set in macOS prefs (US English and UK English). Instead all I get in the Character/Language drop-down is a single English and a bunch of other languages that are never used on this computer. In ID I can select their UK and US English dictionaries, but for some reason in Affinity apps I get a bunch of extraneous languages but not what I have in my system prefs. Someone in the first beta reported that on their iMac it was working correctly, so not sure why it does not work on mine.

I am not seeing that:

I'm running Sierra, but Affinity apps seem to be picking up other language libraries from somewhere. Even in TextEdit and Mail I have the choice of US or UK English, so this seems peculiar to Affinity.

Looks like it might be Sierra-specific: I'm basically getting the same symptom…

Oddly(?), the Hyphenation options more closely reflect what I have set in my System Preferences.

Hadn’t even looked at that, but you’re right. Mine is the same for hyphenation.

TextEdit might use its own dictionary, but I'm not sure...

Anyway, system spelling languages can be set from System Preferences > Keyboard > Text > Spelling at the bottom click 'Set up'. I was only seeing English UK but I managed to get English US to show up by doing that. If it still isn't showing up after restarting the app, then we might be doing something wrong but this is all very much controlled by the OS and not us.

As a follow-up (slightly delayed), we recently upgraded to High Sierra plus the newest 157 build. Thus decided to see if the spelling language had been resolved. In High Sierra, we were able to follow your guide for finding the improved Language settings where we could finally turn off the multiple never-used languages. We also had to turn back on British English despite having had it as one of the two "preferred" languages in Sierra. Once that was done and we restarted APub, we are now getting the correct choices of US and UK English. Finally!!! I think the main issue was Sierra versus High Sierra and how Languages are set/available. 

Anyway, RESOLVED!
