    InDesign CS6 Mac Spell Checker only shows DE_UserDict & Add is greyed out

      Worst part is that Add Button is always grayed out, but does use english dictionary correctly. My Illustrator & InDesign CC 2014 works fine, just InDesgin CS6 has this problem, and must use this to be on same version as others at work. This happened in Mac OS 10.8, and still in 10.10.4.

      I tried resetting prefs &

      Add or remove Hunspell dictionaries | CC, CS6

      Getting stuck on this 5., did not change plist file as I believe that already exisited.


      5. Add a string element with value <language ISO Code> in Info.plist to the Spelling Service and UserDictionaryService Element or HyphenationService element. Depending on the operating system and InDesign version, you can find the file Info.plist at the locations listed below.

      With no document open I have language set to English USA, tried toggling.
