"Possuible Hyphenation" popup
« on: January 09, 2021, 08:16:43 pm »

I am a non frequent user of scribus. Last time I used it, I could hyphenate with no problem, but today, starting a new project, when I hyphenated a text frame, appeared a message stating "Possible Hyphenation". This had never happened before to me.

I stood for some time checking the suggestions, and when I got tired and cancelled, only part of the text had been hyphenated.

I am using Scribus 1.4.8.
I did a search and found that there could be a language issue, but all my styles, and hyphenation in preferences and document preferences, all are set to Catalan (the language I am using).

I checked language (File - preferences - hyphenation - spelling tab) and it states that Catalan is not installed. I download it, but it does not appear as installed.

hyph_ca.dic file does exist in C:\Program Files (x86)\Scribus 1.4.8\share\dicts but there is no Catalan in C:\Program Files (x86)\Scribus 1.4.8\share\dicts\spelling

Thanks for your help!
