Part: II Working with Records & Files > Using Spell Check and Dictionaries

Chapter 6. Using Spell Check and Dictionaries

Each FileMaker record can be spell checked by FileMaker's built-in main dictionary, which contains an impressive 100,000 words, and by a special user dictionary of up to 32,000 words. If you frequently use special terms not commonly found in a dictionary—medical terms or irregular trademarks like FileMaker—you'll want to create one or more user dictionaries.

By default the main dictionary checks all FileMaker files, while you select which files are checked by a user dictionary. In fact, each FileMaker database can be linked to its own user dictionary. This allows you to link a medical database to a user medical dictionary or link a music-oriented database to a user dictionary of performing artists' names. Once that file-to-dictionary link is made, you need not specify it again.
