Hi,

can someone give me some advice to find the settings for the dictionary for the spell checker. Is it possible to proof and edit the dictionary?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Very last line

"Additional dictionary folder:"


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

You can edit existing words or if you type in new words in the fields you can add them as well.

Or if spell checking marks existing words to be wrong which are not, you can right-click the word and mark as Learn.

Yes, for autocorrecting you are right.

But, when I have accidentally marked a wrong word as correct and add it to the dictionary, where can I delete this definition? It's not in the autocorrecting-table.

Good question. Learned words seem to be saved in some Publisher file that I haven't figured out yet.

I can't find any way to "unlearn" a word. (I might guess, though, that a full reset of the program by holding Ctrl while starting it might clear all the learned words.)

The dictionary files that come with APub look like standard Hunspell files:

C:\Program Files\Affinity\Publisher Public Beta\Resources\Dictionaries\

The User dictionary is here but it's not user editable:

C:\Users\Carl\AppData\Roaming\Affinity\Publisher\1.0 (Beta)\user\dictionary.propcol

Highlighting the word and right-clicking should give you the option to "Unlearn" it
