Spelling Check of Book Crashes Frame 10

Mar 18, 2013 3:57 PM

Hi all,


I run the spelling checker for a  Frame 10 book (note, this doesn't happen with individual documents), and when it gets to a repeated word, I get the familiar "can't add repeated words to dictionary" warning, I click "OK," and then I get the dreaded "Internal Error" crash screen. This was happening also with the extra space preference (when you have terms like file types such as ".jpg" or ".bnp").


I totally uninstalled and reinstalled Frame, and it worked OK for a few runs, then it started crashing again.


Any ideas? I don't want to turn off "repeated words" because sometimes they are typos, and sometimes not.

    Can't say I ever had that happen in FM10 myself - maybe your dictionaries have become corrupted? You could try renaming your Linguistics folder outside of FM & then start FM up - it should recreate a fresh copy.

    A co-worker is having a similar problem, but it occurs on the second mispelled word, not necessarily a double word. In the past, renaming the Linguistics folders (there's one in AppData\Roaming\Adobe and one in AppData\LocalLow\Adobe) has fixed the problem, but not this time. I've also tried renaming the 10 folder (AppData\Roaming\FrameMaker\10), that didn't work either. Anyone have any other ideas?

    Curiously enough, I belive the last time it happened at my company I found same-day posts from other users in other companies. Are the Adobe gremlins acitve again?

    To reset the Linguistics folders or the "10" folder, just rename the current ones. I usually add "-old" to the end, so "Linguistics" becomes "Linguistics-old". This will force FM to recreate the folders and the files they contain, effectively resetting them to the default.

    Yes, it will recreate all the necessary folders and files.
