I want to add a dictionary to TeXstudio (.dic/.aff). Here are the files in my visual file explorer:

And here's the same folder when trying to select the files in TeXstudio:

What is this sorcery? Where are the .dic and .aff files? "Show hidden files" is on.

  • Your explorer screen, ask for a directory not a file. Could it be that the program with the directory indication will read the 'dic' files it contains? – djnavas Nov 16 '17 at 3:21
  • You're right! Selecting the directory containing the .dic and .aff files loaded them correctly. Thank you! – Jesse Knight Nov 16 '17 at 4:54

My solution was to "Import Dictionaries", a different button in TeXstudio > Configure TeXstudio > Language Checking, which successfully loaded a .oxt file, though not the desired .dic/.aff files in the original question.
