I have a multi language document which I just want in english so I've removed all other languages.
The dictionary is set to English in the ID preferences, creative cloud prefs and the character palette but when I do a spell check, it seems to be trying to translate the words rather than check them...
Note the language has changed.
Any idea how I can get it to just check in english?
Language is a Character-Level trait. The language for those bits of text must be set to (in this case) Portuguese: Brazilian
You could do a Find/Change to apply English as the Language to every bit of text in the document.
In the Grep panel, Find .+
Change to $0
In the Change Format section, choose English for the language under Character.
Brilliant, worked a treat, thanks very much.
