Italian spelling checker dict-it.oxt doesn't work

Unread postby bruno.stivicevic » Sun Nov 11, 2018 2:43 pm

Hi,

after years of writing in English, I'm trying now to write in Italian. Therefore I've installed the Italian spelling checker DICT-IT.OXT, following the procedure described in HM documentation. The spelling checker appears in the list on the Spelling Options dialog box (therefore it is recognized as such) and I've correctly ticked it. Anyway, all italian words appear to be unknown to the spelling checker.

My OS is Windows 10 in English US display language with Italy country/region with ITA keyboard, the HM version is 7.3.6 build 4521.

Note: I opened the OXT file in 7-ZIP to make sure it's not corrupted - everything seems to be fine.

What else can I check to make my Italian spelling checker work?

Thanks
Bruno

Hi Bruno,

There are two Italian dictionaries on OpenOffice and only one of them (the older one) appears to work.

This is the one you downloaded (dict-it.oxt) and it doesn't appear to be working:
https://extensions.openoffice.org/en/pr ... n-patterns

This is the older one (Dizionari.IT_20081129.oxt) and it appears to be working:
https://extensions.openoffice.org/en/pr ... yphenation

Hi Bruno,

Thank you for reporting this! This dictionary has an unusual folder structure. This structure in combination with a bug in the dictionary parser caused the spell check failure. We have fixed this problem with the build 4603 update today.

Thank you for your prompt response and fix. I've downloaded 4603. When selecting spell checker in the Spelling Options dialog box and clicking OK, few times I've got a non-fatal error (I believe it was an error 1473, in a simple message box - I was about to write down the error number and then it stopped to appear), but then it stopped to appear and now the Italian spelling checker works as a charm!

As usual, HM support is shining!

Kind regards
Bruno
