I was just about the buy Scrivener but noticed in the evaluation copy that there is no “British English” option which means a lot of correctly-spelled words are underlined in red. The “System Language” option also doesn’t work, despite all system settings being set to “UK English”!
I have yet to find a solution to this online, so your help is much appreciated.
If you’re looking for UK English for the spellchecker, you need Go to Tools / Options / Corrections and select British English. If it doesn’t appear in the options you’ll need to hit the Download button and install the appropriate dictionary.
Dear Daniela, I am just reading through your chat, since I am also trying to find the British English option. But I can’t find the options you describe: " you need Go to Tools / Options / Corrections and select British English". Where are the Tools? In which menu of Scrivener?
Thank you and kind regards,
Hi I’m really stuck on this one. I can’t see any obvious menus that match the one given in this answer (There’s no TOOLS menu on Scrivener 3 - anyone can help me? It’s really getting to me that I can’t do a simple correct spell check in British English.
I’ve been advised on another thread that I’ll need to download a dictionary and I’m happy to do this if only I could find the correct menus.
