I have Catalyst Lite v.8 and I have a problem with spell check. Even though I have selected microsoft word dictionaries, Catalyst doesn't seem to recognize them, since nothing happens. Every word appears in red colour as if it was wrong. Any suggestions?

Need more info Feb 12, 2010

Hi Nikolaos,

Can you please tell me some more details about your problem.
I would like to know the Operating system you are using and also the version of MS Word e.g. 2003 or 2007. Are you an Administrator on your machine?

And also could you send in a screenshot of what you see in the Tools | Options | Spell Check dialog when you have the Microsoft Word Dictionaries selected.

Thanks,
Alchemy Support

Info Feb 12, 2010

I am using Windows Vista Home Premium with Word 2007 and I am the administrator on my machine. Please note that I have chosen microsoft word dictionaries from Tools>Options and Greek appears to be one of the available languages. But afterwords every word appears in red as if it was wrong (but no suggestions appear in the box in the translator toolbar). Moreover when I try to do a general spell check in the whole project through the Validate expert every string appears in the results panel because of incorrect spelling. Please note that I am not using a TM with the project.

I would gladly send you a screenshot but I am not sure how to do it!icon_biggrin.gif

Language of OS-Office Feb 12, 2010

Can I verify aswell the language of your operating system.
Is the OS Greek or English and also what is the language you have for Office 2007.

To take a screenshot press the "Prt Scr" which is Print Screen. The active windows will be copied to the clipboard. Now open MS Paint and paste the image from the clipboard into the image and save.

English Windows Vista Feb 12, 2010

I have English Windows and Greek MS Office. Also whenever I shut down Word or Catalyst another window appears for Windows Visual Basic saying "Compile error: can't find project or library". I have tried reinstalling everything several times. Nothing works. And it's really frustrating because I have a very important client who sends me Catalyst projects very often.

As for the screenshot I know how to capture one but I don't know how to attach it in the forum!!
