Dictionary Showing All Words as Errors

If you’re running Perspective 4.6 or later and all the words in a text editor (e.g. Narratives, Summaries, Interviews, etc.) are being incorrectly marked as spelling mistakes with a red underline, the local dictionary file didn’t load on your computer correctly.

The dictionary used for Perspective is stored in your My Documents folder, and contains three files:  en_US.aff, en_US.dic and en_US.zip.

To resolve this issue we have provided a .zip file which contain a working dictionary.  To implement:

  1. Download the attached zip file.

  2. If Perspective is currently running on your computer, close and restart the application.
  3. Unzip the file in your My Documents -
    You may be prompted if you want to overwrite the existing files, please select "Yes" for all files. Note the file path in the image above.

  4. Launch Perspective
