I am unable to get the spellchecker working in any of the Affinity apps.

Discovered it after installing Publisher and it is as if no spellchecker is installed, whether in Publisher or Designer.

Spellchecker OK in other programs.

Any ideas???

For SpellChecking to work you need to make sure that the spelling language is properly set for the text that you enter. It should default to the User Interface language that you specified in your Affinity Preferences (General section). But to check that, enter some text into a Text Frame, and with the cursor in the text open the Character studio panel and expand the Language section of the panel. Do you have the correct language specified for Spelling?

Next: Are you trying with text that you've typed, or text that you've Placed, or that you have entered using copy/paste?

Thank you for pointing the direction.

Although all was set to English (United Kingdom), the Spelling in the Charater Studio came up Unknown (en-AU), which is what Windows is set to, but doesn't seem to affect other programs.

It was only after saving/synchronising a document defaults that the spellchecker finally worked. I then had to do the same in Designer and Photo.

A bit of a trap with nothing in HELP to assist.

But it is now working - many thanks.
