Want to use Canadian English

Posted

I am requiired to use Canadian English for a lot of my typing, hence my words often get transformed from Cdn to US spellings creating a lot of time transposing letters. Do you have Canadian English available or should I just go with American spellings I don't know.

Do you have all dictionaries you need installed?

You can see which dictionary is selected if you right-click in a text area and open the Languages sub menu. At least one dictionary should be installed and have a check mark to indicate that it is selected.

  • open the "Add Dictionaries" link to install a dictionary if you do not have one.

The spelling checker is enabled if [X] "Check Spelling" in the right-click context menu has a checkmark.

You can enable or disable spell checking globally:

  • Options/Preferences -> General: Browsing: "Check my spelling as I type"
