Adding to Dictionary

This page will walk the user through adding words to the practice dictionary. This feature behaves very similarly to other dictionary features in most word processing software, such as Microsoft Word.

Adding Words

To add a new word to the dictionary, select a word that is misspelled in the document and right-click on that word to open a drop-down menu, then select Add to Dictionary. The word will automatically become added to your practice dictionary.


Editing the Dictionary

To edit a word in the dictionary, right-click on a misspelled word then select Options…


Click on the Spell Checking Dictionary tab.


Click on User Dictionaries…


Then click Edit Word List…


On this screen, you can now add words to the list of words manually rather than waiting for the word to show up as misspelled in a document.
