Dictionaries

Hello,
I have created a custom user dictionary using a text wordfile, but it
doesn't seem to be working. I was wondering if anyone might be able to
point out what I'm doing wrong.

From the command line, I ran:

"c:\Program Files\Arbortext\Editor\bin\userdict.exe" -v -add -dict 2009 -f
2009s.txt

This used the 2009s.txt file in the local directory, and created a
dictionary file:

C:\Program Files\Arbortext\Editor\lib\proximity\userdict\2009.eng

I moved this file into: custom\dictionaries

Then I updated my DCF to include the following entry:

<options allowapplicationtoolbar="no" allowcomposestylesheetlist="no"&lt;br"/>allowFosiMod="yes" allowTouchup="yes" dictionaryName="2009" protected="no"/>

For some reason, even though I modified the original wordfile to remove
"e.g." and replaced it with "eg" (a company style decision), spell check is
still suggesting a correction to "e.g.".

I also tried using dictionaryName="2009.eng"... still no dice.

Any thoughts/suggestions appreciated.

Thanks,

keith

Hi Keith,

I have only just seen your query but here goes anyway.

I set up customised user dictionaries in a slightly different manner:

For words that are acceptable, like your "eg", you set up a text file (dictionary) containing them. This user dictionary is then referenced by the environment variable APTSPLACCEPT. I have my setup on local, so the variable goes:

APTSPLACCEPT

C:\custom-doctype\dict\spell_check.txt

The cool thing about this is that you can set up a similar reject dictionary as well:

APTSPLREJECT

C:\custom-doctype\dict\spell_reject.txt

Words in this dictionary will be red-underlined in Epic.

So I guess you'd put e.g. in here and it would be flagged.

Regards,

Ali.
