Hello,
As enthusiastic Publisher fan, and accessorely story writer and book editor, I wonder if any collaboration with Druide's Antidote is on tracks.
Also, yet as a beta, will there be a way to get the auto-correction disabled when texts are not in English?

Anyway, in my point of view, thanks for your excellent job! For my use, Publisher is already a better tool than InDesign.


Best Regards to all.

There is an auto-correction bug happening at the moment (at least for text in English maybe others) when auto-correction is enabled. But other than that bug, what problem are you having with non-English auto-correction?  I think the auto-correction options are entirely under your control via the Publisher Preferences settings.

Prolexis or Antidote are more that simple auto-correction scripts, and that's why we use them in programs like QXD or ID (Prolexis is integrated in other apps too, from Chrome to Word).

When we don't have time to read and re-read and re-re-read texts to search errors, automated corrections and such apps are a must.

Hi Walt,
When placing the texts, these lots of underlined words are quite disturbing... especially if writing in another language.

It would be nice to be able to disable the correction mode at this point.

Hi Wosven,
Right! Yet, I can understand that at the PAO stage, the texts are supposed to be corrected before typographic and placements. Nevertheless, I still would feel good having Antidote working hand in hand with Photo and Designer too...

 

Best wishes folks.

P.S.: It is Antidote helping me the English corrections, in this case :)
