Just installed 6.4.3 (on MacOS 10.14.6). It's fine but some (not all) Writer documents now display a warning: 'Missing hyphenation info - Please install the hyphenation package for locale "en".' I've searched diligently but can't find such a thing. The closest I can get is the English dictionaries extension - is that what's needed? Or - an answer to a related question suggested the Terminal command 'sudo apt install hyphen-en-gb' - is that what I should do?

Just updated from 6.2.8 to 6.3.5 on MacOS 10.14.6, iMac Retina. In Writer all text now showed pixelation, very tiring on the eyes. This seems to be a recurring problem going back a long way. I solved it by reinstalling 6.2.8 from a backup, but has anyone yet found a more positive solution?
