Troubleshooting

What to Do If You Can't Edit Your Custom Dictionary

Two causes are possible. First, your custom dictionary might be empty: You can't edit it until it contains at least one word. Second, if you're running Word across the network, your network administrator may have set custom.dic or its folder as Read Only. Ask permission to create your own local copy of custom.dic and store it where you can access it.

Custom dictionaries have size limits you need to be aware of. No word can be longer than 64 characters, and no custom dictionary can have more than 5,000 entries or exceed 64K in size. If you are running up against these limits, create a separate dictionary for the additional words.
