Spell Check does not work after installing InDesign 15.0.2
Dear Adobe Team,
in our office we use In Design from several years without nothing problems.
Yesterday we had updated the version 15.0.2. After that, the spell-check (we use the Italian language) don’t work if we import text in a existing document.
But if we import text in a new document, the spell-check work without problems.
Please can you help us?
The fix for this issue is now available in the latest update of InDesign – that is, InDesign 15.0.3.
Please update your InDesign application to get the fix.

This is unacceptable!
Come on Adobe, this issue is major! I'm having to copy all text from every file into Microsoft word to ensure there are no typos. Why is this not at the top of your priority list?!?!

I am having issue with spell checking in InDesign CC 2020. Nothing seems to fix it. No red underline. Looking forward to this getting fixed soon. Thanks. Grammer would also be nice.
Not working for me

I downloaded the pre-release and and installed. Now running in 15.0.3 and yet spell check still does not work. I restarted, too, and ensured that Dictionary was on Hunspell. Still not working.

Just realised this once updated. UK English I have tried everything and it's not working. I am a terrible speller and need this!
Using UK English. Still does not work with Hunspell. A fix is needed urgently please.

My dictionary was already set to "Hunspell" and spell check is not working. (Changing this setting to something else did not fix it either.) Please help! Thanks!

No - changing to "Hunspell" does not resolve the issue. If the language is set to US English then it works.
But I am in Canada. When I set the language presence in the text to Canadian English it does NOT work.
Please fix asap

After following these directions spell check works but dynamic spelling does not. This should be fixed immediately.

ahhh yes the Hunspell thing fixed it! Yay!
Switching to Hunspell does not fix the problem for me, Hunspell was my current setting when the problem first occurred and switching to proximity and back was one of the first things I tried.
I am having to use a copy of CS6 on my old laptop but I'm looking at switching to Affinity Publisher because I need professional publishing software with a working spellcheck on my new machine.

Hi, this issue is not solved. My dictionary is set to 'Hunspell' and it still doesn't work. It's a crucial tool in my business so this is a major issue for me.
I'm having same issue.

I have already tried this. The dictionary was set to "HunSpell" and spell checking was still non-functional in filename.indd(converted) documents. Yesterday I had to rebuild an document from scratch to enable spell checking. Pain in the A** – - -

There is an additional problem. Even when one uses the Hunspell dictionaries, if there is more than one language in the document, one will not be checked. For example, in a document, paragraphs set to English: Canadian are checked but those set to French: Canadian are not. (I tried to attach a file as an example but the upload failed.)

Hunspell generally works for me for new documents but as I very often need to retrieve archive work it defaults back to Proximity. Not ideal but better than no spell check.
