There are no spell checker in Scribus, but you can use a good spell checker under GPL license : aspell [1].


  • Download and install aspell.
  • Download and install aspell dictionary for your language.


  • In terminal/console : aspell --lang=fr --encoding=utf-8 --mode=sgml --add-sgml-check=ch check fichier.sla
    • --lang=fr for french, en for english, etc.
    • --encoding=utf-8 Scribus format
    • --mode=sgml Scribus file is XML
    • --add-sgml-check=ch Check only the value CH and note all the values of XML.
    • check action for aspell
    • fichier.sla your Scribus file


  • I'm french with a bad english, there are surely some mistakes.
