V19 Error: "object reference not set to instance of an object" when doing a spell check

I have completed both the Act Diagnostics and manual Preference Rebuilding process and have had no change in the status.

Hi Russ,

This is a known issue with v19.0 update 3 (Defect D-05408). This will be fixed in the upcoming Update 4.
Apologies for the inconvenience.

The dictionary is kept in

 

C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\ACT\ACT Data\Spell  (The dictionary is called Main.dct) The folder also contains a user dictionary text file.

 

First try right clicking on the Spell folder - properties - security - edit - and add EVERYONE and give them FULL CONTROL

 

If this does not work we can also move where this dictionary is kept (Just copy and paste both files) and tell ACT via Tools - Preference - Communication - Spelling Preference making sure you have full access rights to wherever you move it to.

 

In rare circumstances the dictionary can become corrupt and you would need to copy a replacement from the installation media / download.

I have tried all these suggestions which had no impact. I even went so far as to re-install the program with the same result.
