Lingsoft Proofreader CS3 works in the main like the native Adobe InDesign CS3 hyphenation and proofreading facility. Unlike traditional proofing tools Lingsoft Proofreader does not draw on simple word lists. Our solution is based on proprietary two-level morphology model (TWOL) 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 CS3 is available for Windows and Mac OS X platforms, and for the following languages:

Lingsoft Proofreader for Adobe InDesign proofing tools work basically like the native Adobe InDesign proofing facility. Custom dictionary is also available.
The Proofing MenuUse custom hyphenation and proofing dictionaries in Lingsoft Proofreader for Adobe InDesign like you would use the dictionaries of the native Adobe InDesign hyphenation and proofing tools. Entries added to the custom dictionaries are available in both Lingsoft Proofreader and the native hyphenation and proofing tools. For more information on user dictionaries see Adobe InDesign documentation.
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.
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 CS3 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.
