    Chris, I think the clue lies in the Windows update. Run Xara as Admin. A library may need this.

    run admin was my first thought, but chris says he did this, in his OP

    black magic is not going to solve it, but chocolate can sure help

    Run as administrator

    Open to suggestions, up to, and including, black magic and sacrificial blood-letting.

    Sorry Egg, I am running Designer Pro+. I've just updated my profile, which I should have done before, but I'm lazy.

    Update wise. Windows is telling me there's nothing to do. Xara is v24.0 (May 2024).
    I reset the toolbars again, because that seems the most logical thing...no change.

    Uninstall/reinstall is looking more and more attractive.

    Uninstall/reinstall seems like your best route Chris.

    Installed on top of existing install - no joy.
    Wheeled out Revo and uninstalled from Traced Programs. Rebooted PC. Installed fresh download from Xara. - no joy.
    Ran as Admin - no joy.

    My Xara life is joyless. She is a cruel mistress.

    Is there a dict file in your Xara installation Chris. Can't see why there shouldn't but worth a check. Do you still have the limited menu under the spell checker icon?

    back in the day xara spell checker used hunspell libraries, I have no idea if that is still the case

    but if it is, you may have a conflict with another program that uses them, eg open office

    @Egg, yes I have a full directory of 100 files, including en_GB.aff and en_GB.dict

    @handrawn, I use WPS Office. Not sure what they use as their base spell check, but they've just updated to AI spell check. As usual with a new toy, they've gone nuts with its 'look at me...me, me, me. I'm here, it's me. Admire me.'

    After the fresh install, I was putting my personal settings back into place. I can't change the default template from A4 to Photo. I'm not particularly fussed about that, just wondered if it threw any light on the spelling thing.
