Hi All

I have just recently upgraded to Scribus 1.4.4 on my PClinuxOS system.

One of the features I was looking for with anticipation was the 
Spellchecker - which I understood was working fine in this release of 

So after installation I checked that the Dictionary is installed - and 
it is - English (South African) en_ZA and it is in the Folder 
/home/ianw/.scribus/dicts/. But when I select a Frame with text and 
press Shift-F7 I just get an empty Spellcheck Window with the comment 
"Spelling Check Complete" - even when there are errors!!??

What am I missing or have got wrong?

Thanks a lot
