Just downloaded Scrivener today and so far it looks perfect. I am already wondering how I wrote 6 novels without it.

One question - how do I change the spell check dictionary to British English not American English please?

Tools | Options | Corrections

Look at the Dictionary box. There's a "select" button next to it.

Dictionary box? What/where's that?

I am very new to Scrivener so apologies if this is a stupid question.

Not a stupid question! But just look at majormajor's post again: the box in question is found by going to the Tools menu, then Options, then Corrections.

Ah ha, thank you - totally missed that you'd said where it was in your first reply. Many thanks.

I am already loving both the product and this forum.
