Spell checker dictionaries
The setup of Help & Manual includes English dictionaries, but many more are available! Since Help & Manual uses the open source dictionary files from OpenOffice, you can download the desired language from the
OpenOffice extensions download page.
How to download and install dictionaries:
- Go to the OpenOffice extensions download page
- Select Dictionaries from the extensions list
- Download the required language file to your computer. You will receive a file with an ".OXT" file extension
- Copy the OXT file into the "\Dictionaries" folder of your Help & Manual installation
