re: InDesign CC 2019

 

Spell check is not working. I have read numerous forum posts and this appears to have been an issue for many for years. I don't know what else to check. I do think a picture is worth a thousand words … or in this case a single "word"

 

As you can see below, "word" is an unknown word with no suggestions.

In the Character panel, when the word "word" is highlighted, what language does the Character panel say is applied?

hi srishtib8795206 and Mike Witherell​,

Thank you both for responding, after I posted my question, I kept digging for the answer and finally discovered that when I updated to CC 2019, the PREFERENCES–DICTIONARY–SPELLING drop-down was somehow set on USER DICTIONARY ONLY. Not sure how that happened but changing it to HUNSPELL of course resolved my issue.

I appreciate you stepping in to help.

Best,

V

Please tell us what operating system (exactly) you're running. What happens when you attempt to check spelling? Does it happen with one file or all files?

Hi Naf4d:

 

I'm also on 10.15.3 and upgraded InDesign this morning with no apparent issues, and spell check is working as expected. Did Steve's suggestion to rebuild preferences work for you?

 

On that note, I'd try the same thing with Photoshop, though it's a different process. First save any custom workspaces, brushes, presets, etc and use Photoshop > Preferences > General > Reset Preferences on Quit.

 

Let us know if this takes care of one, the other or both apps.

Hello Barb,

 

I've tried your (and Steve's) fixes with Photoshop with no luck – still crashes every time I quit.

I've got a number of third-party brushes installed and one extension – could it be those?

I'm a bit loathed to uninstall them all as it will take ages to find which one(s) are causing any problems.

 

I've found a 'work-around' with inDesign – the spell checker won't work on some older files so I've re-created them, saved them out again, and that seems to have sorted it... I'll keep an eye on that issue...

 

Cheers,

Naf4d

You should ask in the Photoshop forum about your Photoshop issues. This forum focuses on InDesign issues.

On Steve's suggestion I checked out the other forum and quickly found the answer: it's a problem with Extensis Suitcase Fusion auto activation – it's, apparently, getting sorted. I've had to switch it off in Suitcase for now and this stops Photoshop crashing.

 

Thanks for your time.

Copy all the information out of the document and paste it into a new one.

Then check to see if the spell checker is working with the new document.

I am running the latest version of CC 15.0.2, and my spell check is not functioning. I've tried all suggestions while searching around (reset preferences, make sure language is set to English in Character panel, etc) with no solution. Attaching screenshots of the current settings. Help!

Hunspell is a better choice for dictionary. Do you paragraph styles call for English: USA?

I have this problem as well, but it only seems to impact files originally created in older versions. Ive tried exporting to IDML and reopening that version, but no change. Any ideas?

I seem to have this version of the problem... in new documnets in 15.0.2 spell checking is fucntioning normally. But documents originally generated in previous versions – pretty much EVERY PROJECT stated before the last update... YEARS of material – absolutely non-functional. Going to spell check produces "Spell Check Complete" as shown above - and does nothing else.

When you say it is not functioning, what exactly do you mean? The Start button won't work or it's skipping words?

If the former, have you tried rebuilding your preferences? (Try this anyway.)

If the latter, are you sure the words are not actual words, just not the ones you want?

thanks - it acts as if there are no errors. There are misspelt words in the selection, but pressing start does nothing. If I set it to search 'all documents' and have a file created under an older version open and a file created under the new version with the same text pasted onto it, the spell check only picks up the errors in the new document

Having the same issue. Hope this is addressed VERY soon. The link you've provided mentions imported text and the Italian dictionary, but the issue seems to be across the board with spellcheck not functioning.

Holy crap! This is precisely the Issue I've got in my studio. I this very day caught s**t ... some ... um... spirited criticism from a client for poor spell checking - and clients have NO interest in hearing about softtware that costs $636/yr to use being busted! Having to rebuild any document more than a frakking MONTH old from scratch in a new doc to enable spellcheck is a howling time waster. UNACCEPTABLE.

When I retire, I very much suspect I will be SO done with Adobe...

That's a great idea! 

Let's see, there are about 20 programs in the Cloud subscription including the font service (I rounded up to make the math similer). So at $50, that comes to about $2.50 per program. (Evenly divided--after allAdobe can't play favorites with any of its childern.) That's probably one of 100-odd featues in InDesign, so that comes to 2.5 cents for this feature. (Again, can't play favorites with features either.) I hope the check is in the mail--it will probably get there quicker than the IRS COVID check. 

(This was all in stir-crazy fun...)

Actually, you're right for making fun of me ... and doing it so well. I'm just crabby right now. I think this is the first problem I've ever had with Adobe software.  Ever.  It's amazing stuff that allows us to do things we never imagined possible 30 years ago.

We have to basically drag all the content page by page or spread by spread to a new InDesign Document. Like we had to do to remove items from corrupted file in the good old days. I hope they get this fixed soon.
