Dictionary Editing

The Dictionary Editor allows you to add, change or delete words, phrases and macros from the dictionary. It also allows you to Import vocabulary from your documents to get prediction up to speed on your writing style quickly, Export words that you have added to transfer them to other dictionary files, and display Dictionary Info on your current dictionary file. If you have logged your spelling errors, you can convert your spelling errors into automatic spelling corrections using Import feature.

Note: Words are listed in order alphabetically by their first two letters, and then by frequency rather than strictly alphabetically so generally, it is fastest to use the Find option when you wish to edit a specific word..

Adult content words will appear as asterisks (*****) if the Show Adult Words checkbox is not checked on the Dictionary tab in the Prediction Options dialog.

Words with "Spelling Correction History Entry" next to them are used by the spell checking features, and may be deleted but not edited.
