Question Can I add a custom dictionary to LibreOffice?


Hi.

Can I add my own custom dictionary to LibreOffice? For example, I'd like to add a list of words that I know are right but would show up as being misspelled in many dictionaries.

Open Libraoffice Writer. Highlight the Help menu item, and click on LibraOffice Help. When it comes up, on the left there is a text box to enter items to search for. Just enter "custom dictionary" and click on the item when it comes up in the list. That will give you instructions on how to creat/edit your custom dictionary.

Thank you bigrigdriver.

The new dictionary is located in:
Code:
.config/libreoffice/4/user/wordbook/custom.dic
