Lingsoft Proofreader for Adobe InDesign CS Proofing Tools
|Congratulations for choosing Lingsoft Proofreader for Adobe InDesign. You now have a new powerful tool in your hands. Lingsoft Proofreader:|
Lingsoft Proofreader for Adobe InDesign works in the main like the native Adobe InDesign hyphenation and proofreading facility. Unlike traditional proofing tools Lingsoft Proofreader does not draw on simple word lists. Our solution is based on proprietary TWOL two-level morphology model allowing the application to identify word derivatives, related compounds and inflections. Thus, Lingsoft Proofreader can identify any word, which is grammatically correct. In addition to the language-specific basic dictionary, Lingsoft Proofreader includes a wide variety of current and traditional abbreviations and proper names.
Lingsoft Proofreader for Adobe InDesign is available for CS and CS2 versions on Windows and Mac OS X platforms, and for the following languages:
This User's Guide covers the following versions: CS on Mac OS X

ProofingLingsoft Proofreader for Adobe InDesign CS proofing tools work basically like the native Adobe InDesign CS proofing facility. Custom dictionary is also available.
Note: Options in the program Preference panel do not affect proofing.
The Proofing MenuUse custom hyphenation and proofing dictionaries in Lingsoft Proofreader for Adobe InDesign CS like you would use the dictionaries of the native Adobe InDesign CS hyphenation and proofing tools. Entries added to the custom dictionaries are available in both Lingsoft Proofreader for Adobe InDesign CS and the native hyphenation and proofing tools. For more information on user dictionaries see Adobe InDesign CS documentation.
TroubleshootingHow do you know that you are using Lingsoft Proofreader?
Go to InDesign > Preferences > Dictionary... dialog, and Select the language of your Lingsoft Proofreader. If after Hyphenation and Spelling reads Lingsoft Proofreader, then it is in use. See the first issue in Known issues chapter to find out the limit of this rule.
Hyphenation misses self-evident syllabic boundaries.
Boundaries between words, and especially those in compound words, are not always clear-cut, even if we are not aware of this. The program builds compound words quite freely – a function, which increases the number of possible interpretations.
Changes made to the user dictionary have no desired effect.
Adobe InDesign CS automatically applies user dictionaries to hyphenation and proofing so that Lingsoft Proofreader cannot intervene. This is why the user dictionaries fail to identify inflected forms of words the way Lingsoft Proofreader does and, therefore, each form of inflection needs to be entered individually. See Custom Hyphenation and Proofing Dictionaries in this guide.
