Selecting dictionaries

Once you’ve created more than one user dictionary, you’ll need to select which one—if any—you want to apply to any new FileMaker databases. You can also use these steps to switch your main dictionary from US English to UK English.

To select or switch dictionaries:

1.
Choose Edit > Spelling > Select Dictionaries (Figure 6.3).

2.
In the dialog box that appears, click your cursor on the Files of type drop-down menu (Windows) or the Show pop-up menu (Mac) (Figure 6.4). When the choices—Main Dictionary and User Dictionary—appear, choose User Dictionary. (When you want to change your main dictionary, choose Main Dictionary.)

3.
Pick which user dictionary you want assigned to the current FileMaker database by double-clicking its name in the dialog box, or by highlighting the name and clicking Select (Figure 6.7). If you’ve stored the dictionary in another folder, navigate your way there and double-click it.

Figure 6.7. Pick a dictionary by double-clicking its name within the main window of the Select Dictionaries dialog box (top, Windows; bottom, Mac).


This also is where you can switch your main dictionary. If necessary, use the dialog box’s main window to navigate to the dictionary you’re seeking.
