Hello Guys,

Scrivener is not using the proper language for Spell Check. I write in French and it corrects my text as if I was writing in English. I have checked other posts in this forum that had similar issues but all I could find is to make sure the system language is properly set, which it is. As a matter of fact, Microsoft Word is using French for spell check on my machine.

I am using Beta 3, but I have the exact same issue on version 1.9.

Really need an answer... I want to buy Scrivener because I'm really enjoying the features, but I can't if I can't switch the spell check to my language...

In the Beta version, open the Options (F12) and go to Corrections, then Spelling.

Once there, you can switch the language by downloading the French you want to use (click the Download button).

Note that this is for the Beta version. I don't have the 1.9 version installed here, or I could give you those instructions too.
