This may have been asked by someone else already. PagePlus offers hyphenation in Dutch, may I expect Publisher to do the same? I really need it...

Publisher allows you to install your own spelling dictionaries and hyphenation dictionaries, and many additional dictionaries are available on the web already. You can look for dictionaries that are compatible with Hunspell, or start with the dictionaries made available for LibreOffice.

For example, the Dutch dictionaries available here should work. Just download hyph_nl_NL.dic, nl_NL.aff, and nl_NL.dic and place them in the "additional dictionaries" directory shown at the bottom of the Preferences, Tools dialog.

My finnish hyphenation dictionary started with words "charset ISO8859-1". I looked those Hunspell-dictionaries and they have only "ISO8859-1" without word "charset". So I removed word "charset" and now Publisher is not crashing. Hyphenation is working, I think, but I have not tested deeply yet...

... any text editor (I used TextWrangler).

Wow, been years (decades...?) since I used that, BBEdit is the replacement, a slightly limited set of tools for the 'free' version but more features than TextWrangler. Which is if memory serves a damned fine text editor.

Thanks Walt, you have put me on the right track. I placed the Dutch dictionaries from Libre Office in a folder nl-NL within the folder C:/Program Files/Affinity/Publisher Public Beta/Resources/Dictionaries/ . That works!
