Spell Checker
« on: November 15, 2017, 06:14:48 am »
Two questions:

Is there a way to choose a default library? Seems like English UK is default but I have gone thru the Preferences and not found a way to select another library as default > English US.

Is there a way to add words to the library or build a custom spell check library? It keeps flagging the same terms over and over slows down the process of proofing and I can't see a way to add words.

This might help for changing languages: http://forums.scribus.net/index.php/topic,1319.0.html (It sounds like an awkward way of doing things but it means that you can have multiple languages in the same document.)

Also, read the relevant bit of this page: https://www.scribus.net/svn/Scribus/branches/Version14x/Scribus/scribus/doc/en/hyphenator.html (including the important note in red at the bottom).

As for adding words, sorry but I've no idea. Scribus uses Hunspell so maybe there is some info' for that somewhere. (Personally I don't use the spell checker.)
