Need to keep track of how KDE/KOffice are moving along with their spellchecking. The Enchant page mentioned the possible use of Enchant in the KOffice after 1.3. GnomeSpell and GTKSpell also have Enchant patches.

Can we relate this to 0001791 as I think this will be needed sooner or later if we are going to make a standalone Story Editor?

  Here is an implementation of a spell-checker plugin, currently
using aspell, but with plans to move to enchant. Please see the
file README.user which describes the workflow for a typical user
interaction, and README.code which describes the code from a
developer's perspective.

This version will work with Scribus 1.3.5 SVN. Please note that
it has only been minimally tested, and that there are known issues
with the modified text in a text frame not being properly updated
after spell-checking (apparently, this is a display issue).

Have added the most important parts now to SVN and adjusted the code to run with current SVN.

What’s the status of this at present time? Last note was in late 2007. The bug was reported on late 2003. Interesting!

The spellchecker does basically work on Linux and OS X, but not on Windows and OS/2. Sooner or later we'll have to move from aspell to hunspell, because this is maintained for all platforms.
