Danish hyphenation

Recommended Posts

I am not sure whether this is a bug or not, but apparently Danish hyphenation hasn’t been implemented yet (version 1.7.0.167).
Will this issue be fixed before final release?

Best,
Boye

Just to be sure: Did you specify Danish as the language for your text in the Text Frame via the Character studio/panel (Language section), and do you have the hyphenation language specified as either Auto or Danish?

Yes, I have specified Danish in the Character panel and also set hyphenation to Auto. (Unfortunately, it is not possible to select Danish as the hyphenation language. See the attached screen dump.) Furthermore, I have checked the auto-hyphenation option in the Paragraph panel. (The second screen dump.)

In shorter texts, it is quick to manually insert soft hyphens. However, this would soon be tedious when working on a document with more than a few pages. 

Best,
Boye

I know that Publisher does not ship Danish dictionaries for spell-checking or hyphenation, at least on Windows.

I also think that on Mac it integrates with the OS-provided spell-checking, which probably explains the availability of Danish on your system at all. I don't have that language option on Windows.

Apparently, though, your system doesn't have the Danish hyphenation dictionaries installed, or you'd be able to specify Danish as the hyphenation language, too.

Thanks, Walt. Hopefully, in the not too distant future Publisher will offer a hyphenation option in my native language.

On Windows a Publisher user can install additional dictionaries for both spell-checking and hyphenation. 

Perhaps that is also possible on Mac, in which case you could install the hyphenation dictionary yourself. But someone who uses a Mac would have to explain how :)

HI boye

As there are so many languages and dictionaries for them we only ship with libraries the app natively supports. Anything outside of this will require the user adding their own dictionary

cheers

Thanks, Chris. Your answer suggests that it is indeed possible to manually install a Danish hyphenation dictionary. Any hints of how I might proceed with this?

Best,
Boye

What does this mean? It ships with language support for languages the app has been translated to? English, german, french?

I would really prefer Affinity to supply needed dictionaries for all european languages. At least. As links at least.

Hi boye

If you go to Finder > Applications and ctrl or right click on Affinity Publisher Beta you will get the option to Show Package contents. From here go to Contents > Resources > Dictionaries, you can create a folder in there and place the dictionaries you require. These should then be found when you next start the app

Thanks, Chris. I will try your solution when I have found a suitable Danish hyphenation dictionary. If my memory serves me right, someone  recently posted a link in another thread on this forum.

Best,
Boye
