Editing user dictionaries

Editing a dictionary allows you to add and remove words one by one or import an existing text file of special terms you’ve created in another application.

To edit a user dictionary:

1.
First make sure you’ve selected the right dictionary to edit. (For more information, see To select or switch dictionaries on the previous page.) Choose Edit > Spelling > Edit User Dictionary (Figure 6.8).

Figure 6.8. To change dictionary entries, choose Edit > Spelling > Edit User Dictionary.


2.
When the dictionary’s dialog box appears, type the word you want to add into the Entry text box, then click Add (Figure 6.9). To remove words, navigate through the list within the top text box, click on the word you want removed, and click Remove. You can continue adding or removing words one by one until you’re done. If you’ve already built a list of special terms in another application, you can use this dialog box to import them as a text file (see To import or export a text file on the next page.)

Figure 6.9. Within the User Dictionary dialog box, type in the word you want, then click Add. Click Remove to delete words from the text window.


3.
When you’re done editing the dictionary, click OK to close the dialog box.
