That sounds about right.
The one thing that is left out is that the Writing Tools installer is not just a “dictionary file” it really is a separate control with various DLLs to support different languages in addition to the “dictionaries”. We install it separately because people that don't want spelling can then just install XMAX alone at under 10MB.
If someone makes a change, to add a word for example, that is recorded in a *.UWL file (user word list). The location may vary as you can specify any location (as a user). You can find this location by running the spell checker and selecting Options > User Word Lists. Click on one of the word list files listed and then click the Add List button and you should be taken to the folder containing that file. By default files will be placed in “My DocumentsCorel User FilesXMetaL 4”.
