[Tex/LaTex] TeXStudio does not load dictionary files


I have the following problem with TeXStudio. I have several dictionaries installed in the correct directory but the program does not recognize them. Actually the list of dictionaries that appears under the default tab in the general preferences is always empty. I tried to change the directory with no success. I am running TeXStudio with Mac OS X.
Any suggestion?

What is your definition of “correct directory”? May dictionary are placed in /Applications/texstudio.app/Contents/Resources.

TeXstudio preferences

You can access this directory by ctrl-clicking o TeXstudio and then “show package contents”

To set this folder in TeXstudio open it in Finder and drag it to the window where you can select the dictionary directory
