    Default Upgrade to v16.3 overwrites chosen language and personalised dictionary

    Has anyone experienced the loss of their chosen dictionary (English) in my case and their personalised additions? Auto-upgrade destruction job here! German shows as the only option?

    I'm sure it is recoverable; just not sure of the best way.

    Thanks

    Gary, I still have my full range. The only "change" was it now thinks I am American.

    What do the contents of C:\Program Files\Xara\Xara Designer Pro X\16\dict\ look like? Does it contain xara.dic, autocorrect_und.dic and xara_en-GB.DIC?

    If lots of files present, I would Run as Administrator and then check.

    Run as Admin did not change anything, but the mysterious key is odd, date-wise coincides with the upgrade?

    Clean install returned English, English (US) and German, though not the expected list of languages. I will ask Xara support next week for some guidance.
