    Yesterday I have tried to install Hunspell Latin Dictionaries for InDesign CC2018 and InDesign 2019 like told in and I felt lucky finding “Latin”-language in the characters- and the paragraph styles-menu .

    But today I have been wondering about why texts with latin language applied did not hyphenate.

    While my searches I have stumbled over your Hunspell-Installer for Icelandic.
    I have given it a try, installed Latin Dictionaries once again and now text with applied Latin language is hyphened!

    Thank you very much for this!

    Which problem does your Installer solve?
    Is the invalid installation of Hunspell Dictionaries a problem caused by the os (Sierra++) or is it caused by a broken AdobeHunspellPlugin-file?

    Could you make an easy to use Installer for other languages than Icelandic, too?
    Or does one only have to exchange the broken AdobeHunspellPlugin-file from CC2018/2019 with the good one from CC2015?

    Doesn’t Adobe hear about this issue?

    All best

    Hi Martin. It is great to hear this story. This is the second story in a week that I hear how my installer helped solving hunspell hyphnation for a totally different language. This works fine when people have installed their dictionary files manually the way it is recommend by Adobe. Then my install corrects the missing part.

    To answer your questions:
    Which problem does your Installer solve?
    Is the invalid installation of Hunspell Dictionaries a problem caused by the os (Sierra++) or is it caused by a broken AdobeHunspellPlugin-file?

    The problem is not because of Sierra or High Sierra as I tough in the first place. The problem is solved by replacing the broken AdobeHunspellPlugin with the same from InDesign CC 2015.
    Besides that the installer puts every part of the Hunspell installation in its correct place, but many users are afraid to do this manually.

    Last year I made an installer that only replaced the AdobeHunspellPlugin but I removed it because it confused many Icelandic users.
    I will try to find it in my files and make it available, updated for CC 2019 with a different text for explanation.

    As for Latin installer, I plan to update one I made for a man in France last year. It has the install texts in French. I can not do this right away, but it should be done soon.

    While the path for the install stays the same inside InDesign, one can use previous installers by temporarily change the year in the name of the InDesign application. Adobe InDesign CC 2019.app to Adobe InDesign CC 2018.app and then back.

    Lastly, the developers of InDesign have heard my complaints and I have pointed out a way to fix this.
