- Download Ghostwriter for Windows. At the time of writing this,
only the portable version is available.
- Extract the zip file where your want to install the program.
- Create a folder called dictionaries in the application folder.
- Create a folder called data in the application folder. I am not sure
if this is necessary, but you need it if you want to make the
application fully portable.
The next step is to download Hunspell dictionary.
From the https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/language-tools/
page choose the dictionary you want.
- Go to the dictionary page using any browser other than Firefox.
- Find the “Download file” link option on the page. It can be a little
hard to find; download the file.
- The downloaded file will have the .xpi extension. You should be able
to open this file in a file archiver application like 7-zip or WinRAR.
If these are not available, renaming the file to zip might allow the
Windows built-in zip extractor to work.
- Copy the two dictionary files to the dictionaries folder we created
earlier. These files have the extensions .aff and .dic.
- Go to Ghostwriter ➾ Settings ➾ Preferences ➾ Spell Check ➾
Dictionary. Choose the dictionary you want. Enable the “Live spell check
enabled” option to get the real-time spell check feature. You may have
to restart the program and turn “Live spell check enabled” on and off,
to get it to actually work. There is also a manual spell check option in
Edit ➾ Spell check.
