Reply to: spell checker/thesaurus word list accessible for own terminology?

The behavior is the same in 6.0, you can add words to the UWL file, which if necessary could be shared between different users if everyone should have the same list.

Can you explain why the UWL file is not acceptable? Are they the same needs that Ulrich in this thread has?

One option that will work (in all versions going back to 4.x):
1) Place all your new words in an XML document that the user can open (probably using a schema they typically author to).
2) Optionally, have the user delete their UWL file. This would be necessary only if you need to remove words from the list (ie: something that used to be “good” that is now unacceptable).
3) Have the user open the file and spell check it (F7).
4) During spell checking hold down the Alt+D and keep it held down until all words have been added to their UWL.

Alternatively, you could run this process on your machine and distribute the UWL.
