If your problem is with spelling, not hyphenation, then the hyphenation language should not be relevant. What should matter is the spelling language, and that is specified in the Character Panel. It is quite possible that you have managed to have some of those words specified as being in French and some of them specified as being in some other (or no) language.

You could use the Find function in Publisher to look for words that have their spelling language set to None, or to some specified language such as French. That might help you find the text that is misspecified, if that is actually your problem. For example, if you did a Find for text in French, you could see which text was not French.

Thanks Walt :)
Yes, right, I was tired yesterday evening : I wanted to write "French language". I thought I did select French but it was the problem. For some text frames, it was written "unknown" in the character panel.

[edit/ I might know what I did wrong : I've changed the language while I was using the Frame text tool and not the Move tool but did not test yet.]

But I have another problem : all the words with an apostrophe are underlined.

Cheers,

Patrick

I've edited the title to highlight my new trouble...

Thanks in advance if you know how to avoid this :)

There's a bug in the spell checking, which has been reported but perhaps not yet acknowledged by Serif. For French it only works if you type using the straight apostrophe character, not the curved apostrophe (or right quotation mark).

I can't find the topic right now; sorry.
